I Hear An Echo in My Future

Wow, what a great time to be an Echo & The Bunnymen fan. First came word 'The Fountain', their first studio album in four years, would be out Oct. 13. Just a few weeks after that, Nov. 10, to be exact, the band will release 'Live At The Royal Albert Hall', a classic recording from July 19, 1983. To complete the trifecta, Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant (the two remaining band members) are performing the 1984 album 'Ocean Rain' in its entirety... with an orchestra to boot. That's one to add to my list.

Here are a few must-listen tracks. The first one is from 'The Fountain'. To get you in the live mood, the second song is from a 1983 show. Finally, here is a track from 'Ocean Rain' to round out the threesome.

Echo & The Bunnymen - Think I Need It Too (mp3)
Echo & The Bunnymen - Do It Clean (Live) (mp3)
Echo & The Bunnymen - Silver (mp3)

And here is another great song from 'Ocean Rain', performed live in 1984.
