?? ??Memory Place (with Paul Haig)
Assembled from the variety of sessions recorded by the two singers between 1993 and 1995, when both found themselves at loose ends and disenchanted by the record business, Memory Palace makes for both a welcome addition to Billy Mackenzie's tragically limited canon and a fine example of Paul Haig's own magpie-like musical pursuits.
Stone The Memory Place
Listen To Me
Take A Chance
Give Me Time
Give Me Time (Dennis Wheatly Mix)
Beyond Love (Remix)
Stone The Memory Place (Remix)
Posthumous collection from the ex-Associates singer. These 10 songs were all written and recorded during the last chapter of his life, all coming from Billy's single-minded musical ideal. This is the ideal Billy MacKenzie album that should have been. 'Pain In Any Language' was recorded with Apollo Four Forty. It was the last thing he recorded, and the last lyric he wrote.
The Soul That Sings
Here Comes The Rain Again
Achieved In The Valley Of Dolls
Falling Out With The Future
Anacostia Bay (At The Edge Of The World)
Pain In Any Language
?? ??Transmission Impossible
Many of the mixes on this album originate from Billy's personal collection, none of which have been previously available. Although they may occasionally sound less polished than subsequent posthumous remixes, it was decided that too many posthumous 'fingerprints' would simply serve to impair the greatness of the performances herein. And a little bit of tape hiss never hurt anyone.
