Synopsis by Mark Deming
A founding member of revolutionary rock group the Velvet Underground, John Cale has produced albums for such artists as the Stooges, Patti Smith, Jonathan Richman, and Happy Mondays, and as a solo artist has produced a remarkable body of work marked by powerful songwriting and an uncompromising musical vision. John Cale: Fragments of a Rainy Season preserves a solo performance from Cale, alone at his piano. The songs include "Paris 1919," "Ship of Fools," "Fear (Is a Man's Best Friend)," "The Style It Takes," "Hallelujah," and "The Chinese Envoy."
