NICO - CAMERA OBSCURA (LP)


"Rubbbing shoulders with some of the most creative, successful and famous people in the world, this model, actress, singer, composer and Warhol Superstar's CV reads like a who's who of the sixties, seventies, and eighties. Brian Jones, Federico Fellini, Jimmy Page, Bob Dylan, Serge Gainsbourg, The Velvet Underground; all of them recognized the talent of this German contralto. Camera Obscura, recorded in 1985 with James Young and Graham Dids, turned out to be her last album before her death in 1988. Produced by John Cale it gives a refined view of the avant garde new wave of gothic rock that she had first explored on Drama Of Exile. But next to all the experiments with drum computers she also gives us a warm and affectionate rendition of the jazz standard 'My Funny Valentine'. Teutonic mastery pressed lovingly into high quality vinyl for the first time in 25 years!" (label info)
