Axel Rudi Pell - 'Diamonds And Rust' (Joan Baez cover)

Well I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual
It's just that the moon is full
And you happened to call
And here I sit
Hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes
Were bluer than robin's eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in the midwest
Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks
You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

Now I see you standing
With brown leaves falling around
And snow in your hair
Now you're smiling out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington Square
Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there

Now you're telling me
You're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague
Because I need some of that vagueness now
It's all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid

Axel Rudi Pell - 'The Ballads VI'
Το έκτο μέρος της σειράς - συλλογής "The Ballads" θα κυκλοφορήσει ο Axel Rudi Pell. Τιτλοφορείται "The Ballads VI", αναμένεται τον τρέχοντα μήνα, με τον Γερμανό κιθαρίστα να μας λέει σχετικά: «Usually we only have 3 new songs on the Ballads compilations, but this time we recorded 5 new tracks

Ο Axel Rudi Pell σχημάτισε το προσωπικό του σχήμα το μακρινό 1989, μόλις έφυγε από τους Steeler. Είναι ενεργό μέχρι και τις ημέρες μας έχοντας κυκλοφορήσει 21 "ολοκληρωμένους" στουντιακούς δίσκους (συν επτά συλλογές, πέντε live albums, 19 singles, τέσσερα VHS / DVDs και ένα demo).

Δελτίο τύπου: «Ballads play a very special role in the history of rock music. Firstly: They document the emotional side of the genre and show that behind (almost) every rocker`s hard chest beats a soft heart.

Secondly: Those quieter songs are being played by radio stations without rock-affinity - and are loved by listeners for their emotional depth. And thirdly: In an increasingly hectic world, ballads offer brief moments of pause, of reflection on the essential things in life.

So it's no wonder that the ballad compilations of the Axel Rudi Pell Band are an absolute success. Over 250,000 copies have been sold of ‘The Ballads I’ (1993) to ‘The Ballads V’ (2017) alone.

And nine (!) of the current Top-10 most streamed Pell songs on Spotify are ballads! More than enough reason therefore, why fans of the Bochum guitarist and songwriter regularly push for a continuation of this release series.»
