Hi everyone,

Does anyone know why the Amazon.de listing for TJF lists only one disc when the release notes by Heather mentions a second live disc?

It will only be one CD.
I guess it was the decision of the record company to not add it as bonus album, instead having it as a separat CD. Call it marketing strategy! Why giving away a wonderful live album for free.

this really sucks!
and i'm sure you'll get the bonus tracks only buying the full album on itunes and the others

Thanks Gerd, you're always the one with the answers. I don't really mind that it will be a separate cd. Just one more cd in my Heather collection .

Have to say, I really don't mind if it is a separate cd. I am not looking to get a deal - I am all about supporting my fave artists - there are so few left out there who do not become commercial and at least Heather has stayed true to her heart in whatever she produces. I tend to buy her in bulk and give her disc as gifts whenever I can, just to support her and her art form. Besides, a bonus live album would take away from the new album as it takes work to grow to love new songs and you may get swept up in listening to the live one and never really give the new album a chance. Just from the snippets, it sounds amazing!

"WHy give away a live album for free?"

well, because

-you can always get it for free!
-you really want people to pay full price for half an hour of acoustic songs?

It's much more than half an hour...

Actually, the live CD is most likely longer than the new album.

I thought "half an hour of acoustic songs" referred to The Jasmine Flower.

ah well OK.

The Jasmine Flower is 42 minutes. I know shorter albums. Even "Storm" was shorter.

Back to my point about quality vs quantity - she said she had more bits of songs - these songs on this latest release are probably the ones she felt strongest about. If it was longer and some of the songs were mediocre, there would be people upset about that. I am quite sure the decision to strip down the music to the bare essentials was intended to give the songs their full impact and lended best to the emotions of the songs. Let's maybe wait to hear the whole album first, no? I am still so so so excited. I never noticed Storm was that short, and that is one of my favourite albums of hers.

Thanks for the link to the musicsamples of The Jasmine Flower.

The samples annoys me, I mean to every song there has to be a beginning and an end. I stopped after hearing about 6 of the 12 tracks. But what I've heard so far is very good.

There is something about the acoustic tracks and versions of Heather Novas music. I think it gets even deeper under my skin.

I think it's shame that Higher Ground is not a part of this CD, but I guess it didn't fit in. Higher Ground has really grown on me - like most of the Heather Nova songs.

I hope that all the tracks from this period will be available on CD. I prefer having music on CDs. I guess I'm too old to only have my music as MP3s and so on.

I am really looking forward to the 10th of October - I hope my wife and son will let me have some time with headphones.

Too bad that it seems that she's not doing any concerts in Denmark (or Norway or Sweden). I guess that she's not so known here.

Do u think there's a chance that the lead track RIDE will be listenable in it's entirety on Heather's myspace page (or anywhere else!) ahead on the actual album release on 10 Oct 2008; I am dying to hear at least one song in full (and certainly this one, because from the samples I've heard it's one of my faves); hey Gerd, maybe we could just phone u up and u could take requests to play tracks from TJF down the phone, ha ha !!!

Just 14 days left and you can get the album! To listen to a song via phone i would not recommend. the album is very stripped down, very intensive, just wait a the remaining days to listen to it! I am sure you wil be blown away then!

I asked in a local store here when Heathers new CD will be released here, it will also be 10/10 but the name of the album was also "Dark Horse Heart".

I like this song... seems to fit Heather's description of the album pretty well.

Here are the lyrics.

Ride
by Heather Nova

(Verse 1)
I don't know if I took a wrong turn
Cause the birds don't fly low like they used to
The water's rising but I'm bone dry
And I don't come for you like I used to

(Chorus A)
And I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful.
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl
Like a butterfly
Just hold onto nothing
And ride

(Verse 2)
Well sometimes I'm hungry for the warmth of a body
Like a flame that could feed me or keep me alive
I done the right thing but I'm incomplete
I need something to explode inside

(Chorus B)
And I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful.
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl
Like a butterfly
Just hold onto nothing
And ride
Hold onto nothing
And ride

(Break)
Onto Georgia O'Keeffe's skies
Over red earth plains
Where the desert raven flies
Where the truth remains

Let me ride
Yeah
Ride, ride

(Chorus C)
Cause I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl
Like a butterfly
Just hold onto nothing

(Chorus D)
And I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful.
I wanna hold onto nothing and ride
Like the cinnamon girl
Like a butterfly
Hold onto nothing

(Chorus E/Denoument)
Yeah, I need a stranger to tell me I'm beautiful
I wanna hold onto nothing and nothing and nothing
Yeah, hold onto nothing
And ride
Hold onto nothing
And ride
Hold onto nothing

just read Gerd's posting that the bonus live cd will be released in 2009. Will it be a separate cd or is the album going to be re-released with a bonus cd as is the want of a lot of bands these days..making us buy it twice?

Very nice.

11 days left!

I think the track might have stood even stronger or more fragile without the violins. Guess I'm strange.

Keep thinking of "Storm" from the bootleg Passionskirche 18.6.03(?), where her guitarsound disappers. Absolutely wonderfull. So beautiful and emotional.

The Storm-album is still my favorite.

I'm listening to 'Ride' right now. It's great!

Last night I managed to order the Jasmine Flower from amazon.de. It's going to be one of the most expensive CDs I've ever bought.

You should check out amazon.co.uk 1 or 2 days before official release, it may appear cheaper by then...

Last time around I ordered REDBIRD from amazon.de and what frustrated me was the delivery time; the album was released but I had to wait what seemed like forever to receive and actually hear it (well, OK at least a week, maybe two, after the actual release date); so I am hoping some other supplier will have it listed soon, one that despatches quicker than amazon; I'd be very surprised if amazon.co.uk had it listed so soon though...

Yeah, why is it so expensive there? Normal CDs don't go for that much there, do they? Could it be they are still factoring in the original price that assumed there would be a bonus CD?

I was worried about the strings, but they seemed to work really well on Ride, adding some nice emotional notes. It reminded me a bit of the old one guitar and one cello mixes that Heather Nova used to do with Nadia Lanman. Those always sounded good.

Yeah, I have no idea why it's so expensive on Amazon.de! You may be right, Cassander. And add 6euro for slow shipping on top. Hopefully the price will go down.

I'm keeping an eye on UK websites to see if the Jasmine Flower shows up. If it does I might cancel my .de order as I don't want to wait a week or three for the CD to actually arrive.
