Oh, what a night: reviews, so far

i-D magazine online 15.03.11 ...'She's not resting on her laurels though - dressed in a Westwood number, Brücken has grown into herself. At 47 she's quite a lady but still retains an endearing self-consciousness about her demeanor.'...

Record Collector April 2011















electricity-club.co.uk 13.03.11 ...'In fine voice throughout, she captured the hearts of all who were present and was humbly appreciative in return. It was an outstanding evening, delightfully performed and presented... .almost perfect in fact.'...

NME mag 08.03.11


















remembertheeighties.com (reviews) ...'Claudia sounded convincing and faultless throughout the night with the enthusiastic audience hanging onto every word'...'The band sounded tight and totally on the same page on every single track, one of the best I have heard live with such a set-up'...'Essential'...

How envious I am that I could not attend this without incurring crippling debt. I will have to settle for VIP tickets to OMD next Monday in Atlanta, Georgia. I especially like the b+w photo dressing room photo that looks as if it came from Glenn Gregory's iPhone from the looks of it. Of course, Roger Goodgroves photos capture the evening very well.

I was reading this Andy McCluskey interview and he reveals that Paul has been mixing a live album, presumably from the Scala show, for Claudia of late. I thought you would like to know if you already didn't.
