Portishead 'PNYC: Roseland NYC Live' 2xLP
An incredible live album showcasing Portishead's July 1997 performance at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC, where they were joined by a 35-piece orchestra. Re-working a selection of tracks from both Dummy and the eponymous follow-up, PNYC demonstrates how the recorded can translate equally well into the live, given a little inspiration and creativity. Drawing on full string and horn sections and turntablist intervention from Andy Smith, they explore live soundtrack angles, lacing the original versions with measures of Lalo Schifrin, Barry Mancini et al. Although some may be sceptical at the lack of new material, they shouldn't be put off. As the neo-classical sounds of ""Glory Box"", post rock of ""Sour Times"", brazen brass jazz of ""All Mine"" and theremin-led hip hop of ""Mysterons"" all comfortably cohabit the same place, managing to re-work and re-charm their way into your sub conscious. PNYC is a class delivery from Portishead, from the arrangement and production to the performance and orchestration. - Found Sounds
