For our latest Society of Sound studio-quality download, Edwyn Collins performs live at Little Big Beat studio in Liechtenstein.
This intimate live recording includes favourites such as ‘Rip it Up’ from Collins’ days in seminal post-punk band Orange Juice and subsequent hits ‘A Girl Like You’ and ‘Home Again’.
The brand new, live performance, a mix of old and new material, is all the more exciting and poignant because in 2005 Collins suffered a stroke so severe that it effectively deleted the contents of his mind. It took him two years to return to the stage, having painstakingly relearned the lyrics to his songs from scratch. Fortunately, the stroke hasn’t dented his performing ability or musical talent – he’s since released three albums, Home Again, Losing Sleep and Understated.
The Live Session was performed in front of a live studio audience at the Little Big Beat studio in Liechtenstein on 12th November 2013 – a Society of Sound exclusive download not to be missed.
