MARTIN L. GORE

A GUIDE TO HIS MUSIC

(All catalogue numbers and release dates refer to the UK.)


12 June 1989 EP/CD COUNTERFEIT E.P

  1. Compulsion 5.27 [Joe Crow]
  2. In a Manner of Speaking 4.20 [Winston Tong (Tuxedomoon)]
  3. Smile in the Crowd 5.03 [Vinni Reilly (Durutti Column)]
  4. Gone 3.28 [Glaisher/Peake/Fellows/Brown (Comsat Angels)]
  5. Never Turn Your Back on Mother Earth 3.03 [Ron Mael (Sparks)]
  6. Motherless Child 2.48 [traditional] (CD: CDSTUMM 67)
Sensitive, intimate and (sometimes breath-takingly) beautiful cover versions. The sparse arrangement brings out Martin's delicate vocals. It's a pity that there are no more than six tracks.


10 Oct 1995 various artists CD TOWER OF SONG - THE SONGS OF LEONARD COHEN

A various artists tribute album to Leonard Cohen. Martin Gore contributed his own version of Cohen's 'Coming Back to You'. Sounds just like you would expect.


14 April 2003 CDM/DVD-single Stardust

  1. Stardust 3.08 (David Essex)
  2. I Cast a Lonesome Shadow (Stewart Walker Remix) 5.31 (Hank Thompson/Lynn Russwurm)
  3. Life Is Strange 2.17 (Marc Bolan) (CD-maxi: CDMUTE 296)
  1. Left Hand Luke and the Beggar Boys - video 3.08
  2. Stardust 3.08
  3. Stardust (Atomic Remix) 3.22 (DVD-single: DVDMUTE 296)
'Stardust' was chosen as a single, not because it is commercial, but because it represents in some way the uncommercial aspects of the full length album. The 'Stewart Walker Remix' of I Cast a Lonesome Shadow is actually not a dance mix. Track 3, on which he sings with a bit more passion than on 1 & 2, is only available on this single.

28 April 2003 CD COUNTERFEIT 2

  1. In My Time of Dying 4.24 (Traditional)
  2. Stardust 3.08 (David Essex)
  3. I Cast a Lonesome Shadow 4.51 (Hank Thompson/Lynn Russwurm)
  4. In My Other World 3.53 (Julee Cruise/Louis Tucci)
  5. Loverman 7.02 (Nick Cave)
  6. By This River 4.01 (Brian Eno/Hans Roedelius)
  7. Lost in the Stars 2.52 (Maxwell Anderson/Kurt Weill)
  8. Oh My Love 3.33 (John Lennon/Yoko Ono)
  9. Das Lied vom einsamen Mädschen 5.25 (Werner Heymann/Robert Gilbert)
  10. Tiny Girls 3.20 (David Bowie/Iggy Pop)
  11. Candy Says 4.35 (Lou Reed) (Mute CDSTUMM 214)
In general an enjoyable album and pretty much what we could expect of a follow-up to his first solo album, but here are also a few weaker tracks: 'I Cast a Lonesome Shadow' suffer from a more or less annoying over-production of 'punctual blips' that puts a shadow to Martin's vocals. 'Lost in the Stars' is a very strange Broadway-style song, 'Das Leid...' too where he sings in German. The strongst tracks are 2, 4-6, 8 and 10. All in all I recommend this album to fans.

17 Nov 2003 live DVD+CD / 12" Loverman E.P.

    Live DVD-single with bonus CD:

  6. Counterfeit 2 Interview 7.00

  2. Loverman (Bola Remix) 6.46
  3. Das Lied vom einsamen Mädschen (Turner Remix) 5.04
  4. Das Lied vom einsamen Mädschen (Lawrence Remix) 8.48 (Mute DVD MUTE 322)

    Das Lied vom einsamen Mädschen (Turner Remix) 5.04/Das Lied vom einsamen Mädschen (Lawrence Remix) 8.48 (12 MUTE 322)
The DVD concert is short but very nice and shows that Martin sings live just as good as on his records, his voice is clear and effortless and simply amazing, not many artists can sing as good live as he can (but his stage dance, well you have to see it yourself).
