£16.99? For a SINGLE?!

Crue-L Grand Orchestra

That was the reaction today in certain Internet circles to the (Japan-only) release of  Theo Parrish’s rework of Crue-L Grand Orchestra’s (You Are) More Than Paradise. I must admit that I was thinking along the same lines until I heard the full 17 minute extravaganza via Chris Tubbs’ Head Down Blog and Soundcloud posting, thus alerting me to the full magnificence of this track.

Recently I’ve spent time listening (like REALLY listening) to a couple of “long-form” classics – E2E4 and Music for 18 Musicians, both clocking in around the hour mark – so TP’s offering feels, if anything, a bit on the short side. But what I’ve heard I’ve liked and have therefore taken the plunge and (ouch) ordered it from Juno.

Just don’t tell the missus…
