Reissue of Long Out-Of-Print Classic Live Album Released on 180g Virgin Vinyl Double LP!
Fully Remastered & Resequenced from the Original Masters!

Fragments of a Rainy Season is the the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and "unplugged" - before that term became a mid-'90s buzzword. In contrast to the jaundiced punk truculence of Sabotage/Live (1979) or Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1986), Fragments gives us Cale at his most melodic and moving, a mellowed and certainly a more sober man in a Yamamoto jacket and a lopsided haircut running through a selection of his prettiest songs, including his seminal take on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."

The album features versions of "Paris 1919," "Dying on the Vine," "Chinese Envoy," cover versions of the Elvis classic "Heartbreak Hotel" and the aforementioned Leonard Cohen, and a suite of Dylan Thomas' works "On a Wedding Anniversary," "Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed" and "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night."
