sos - live in tokyo

Sorry, due to unforeseen demand the live CD was unavailable at some of the recent shows. Anybody who wasn't able to get one, or just wasn't able to make it to a concert and would like one, please click the 'buy now' button below and I'll get one to you as soon as physically possible!

Hi Wes,

Actually, not so much a pressing problem as a shipping one. The band are moving around a lot and we missed a fedex delivery somewhere in California. Hopefully get it ironed out in the next couple of days. Still, at least I'm learning about online transactions!

Dear Andy,
I tried to use the given website twice to order the Tokyo Live album and it said session timed out? Is this site really secure or can I order this albumn at a different site? I wonder where my VISA number went? Thank you. Leonard

Good Day to you.

I am exited that your cd is available now rather than August.

One small hang up though, I do have a paypal account but couldn't log-in. I thought I would let you know. Thank You in advance.

I also tried to purchase the CD on June 8, 2005 at 7:30pm EST using the provided link and received the time out error message. I didn't take that long to enter my info and I also have security concerns regarding my credit card info.

Wilco, thanks for the encouragement. I've read your posts regarding LIT and they never fail to warm the proverbial cockles...

I have tried 5 different times to log my info in here to order this,and its not registering.
Would really like to order this,but I'm tired of wasting my time by constantly re-entering the information. If anybody has another suggestion,I'm open to it.

I just tried ordering again -- same timeout problem. Perhaps it doesn't work for US credit card orders.

Please put the paypal sign-in box on a secure page. Thanks!

Just ordered the CD by using a different computer. Not sure why I couldn't do it from home. Does anybody know how long it takes to ship this from England to the United States? I'm certainly looking forward to hearing this.

Art - I understand the concern. Due to URL masking, my domain name remains in the address bar when you go to the secure paypal page. If you want to be assured from a security point of view, please accress the paypal page from this link
This should take you to the paypal source page with 'https' at the start...

hope there are some copies at the Birchmere show on the 14th. god, we CAN'T wait. in '97, we traveled to San Francisco to see ya and now we're headed to the East Coast. if you ever consider playing in Denver, the Bluebird, Gothic, or Ogden are about the right sized venues for SOS.

Make sure you get your hands on this CD. It's phenomenal. I love the segues between the different SOS songs. Out of this world.
Almost blew out the speakers in my car on my drive home last night!

Great to see that the album is finally up for sale at a reasonable price!

I've been listening to the album for quite some time now, and it's really wonderful! "Surrender" sounds rejuvenated, almost!!

Keep that wonderful music coming!

And keep swinging,

Hello Andy / Corine
I´m trying to get a copy of this new live CD which should be wonderful.
Now the most important question:
Hope it doesn´t take too long, please.
All the best,

Hi Andy, I can't seem to get past the 'Member log-in' part (where it says if 5 seconds pass, retry). I even submitted a new password but nothing seem to work. Any suggestions?

I started to fill the order form, but when I arrived on the Paypal payment page, the secure transaction icon wasn't diplayed. Is it because of the URL redirection ?

Hey Waltbriski,

the cover of the live album and track listing is to be found here:

The album is FANTASTIC, much better than the "Jazz Cafe" live album from 1994.

Hi Andy!

Tried ordering the new CD a couple of times, but it timed out each time (how many times can one use "time" in the same sentence, really?).

Was wondering if I need to order another way or just keep trying?

By the way, I saw the band in Baltimore last night. Absolutely fantastic. Missed you.

Still yawning this afternoon because I had too much fun meeting the outstanding Mike, "Phenomenal Mom" Dee and the ever-lovely Corinne. Had an hour's drive after the show and an early workday today, but wouldn't have missed it for the world. And my wife and I will be at the Birchmere cheering them on tomorrow as well.

Come round next time!

Best wishes,

Andy - Thanks so much for producing this live album, I can't wait to hear it. Although there were no cds for sale at last night's Philadelphia show, I'm glad to be able to order it here. Thanks also for all the great music over the years, I love it all and it was an incredible privilege to be able to finally hear it played live last night at the Troc. Making the evening all the more memorable, musically speaking, was the wonderful music mix that was played over the sound system prior to the show that was played from an iPod which the sound guys told us was programmed by you. We all really enjoyed it and would love to have a listing of the tracks if you'd be so kind as to share this information, either here or on the Swing Out Sister website or via email. Also, please consider releasing a complete concert on dvd, cd, or both. There is such a wide territory of the world which will likely never have an opportunity to see a live Swing Out Sister show, and such a release would only increase your potential audience, I should think. Thanks again for all the music for all the years. Cheers. - William Kates

Hey guys - sorry haven't been here for a few days. Have been a little snowed under with CD mailouts! Thanks for all the positive feedback.
Derek, I'm very flattered by your comments, but as for Tim & Myke, couldn't agree more - phenomenal players, the pair of them, and great people too...
Walt, I'm aware of the Sandpipers, but not the track you mention - I'll see if I can find it...

Andy, can't wait to hear this. Please let Corine and the band know that the show at the Birchmere in Alexandria was great.

Hey Andy!

We went to the concert at the Trocadero in Philadelphia and everybody was faboulous. I just can't believe it, last time I saw swing out sisters was late 80's in the Philippines and I was seated all the way up in the bleachers. After the Concert my partner and I stayed behind hoping to catch the band and everybody was so nice and accommodating. I just can't believe it! ILOVEYOU GUYS!

Hi Andy,
I either get 'timed out' with my credit card or I keep being asked to enter my paypal password (& it is correct, I just used it a few days ago). Is there any other way that I can order this CD?

At 11:41 pm, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hi Andy,
I am writing after seeing the show in NYC... I loved it. You guys are the shit! I am a former TV booker/producer... and I am going to do everything in my power to make sure that Swing Out Sister plays a bigger venue in NYC. Your influences are so all over the musical terrain - and the audience [at least in NY] reflected it. Congratulations... can't wait to receive my CD Live in Tokyo.

I received the CD today and have just finished listening to it. All I can say is, "Wow!" No, actually I can say more than that. First of all, THANK YOU for making it available. Secondly, it sounds just as fantastic as everyone else has stated.

And lastly, although the CD only lists one song per track, I've noticed several other songs that have been snuck in as medleys, and I'm trying to figure them all out. Can you help me? Here's what I think I've heard so far.

1. surrender / world out of control
2. get in touch with yourself
3. la la means i love you
4. sugarfree
5. stoned soul picnic
6. closer than the sun / forever blue / alfie
7. heaven only knows
8. filth & dreams
9. now you're not here / no scrubs
10. am i the same girl
11. breakout / when morning comes
12. twilight world

Thanks again! :-)

Ordered Live In Tokyo without a glitch, received today, and just listened to it in its entirety. So raw, so imaginative. Corinne's vocals especially multi-textured with many delightful nuances. Songs within songs. I feel so fortunate to have heard this CD. Thank you for making it... beautiful, possible, tender, textured. Breakout and Twilight World out of this world!

I had problems using paypal as well. It kept "timing out"

I ended up changing computers and placed the order. I believe it has to do with the security settings.

Hey, Derek, you mean Jascha Heifetz, right??

Btw, 2 the guys N gals who wanna purchase the LIT cd (funny cause Lit is the name of a band too) be sure to check the lock icon at the right lower end of the start bar and that there's an "s" between HTTP and the rest of the signs :// that conform the url protocol (http://www) :P

Sorry to have waited so long, but I wanted you to know I received the CD last week and it hasn't left my car stereo since! Incredible talent all around. The mark of a dynamic arranger...these are songs we've heard for years, but they sound so completely new and fresh. While I'm sure it's an unbelievable amount of work, it sounds like you all were having such fun...singers spot on and the musicians could not have been tighter. Thank you for making this available to us!

Just got the CD in the USA, less than a week after ordering. And boy was it worth the wait! Corrine's voice is in superb shape and the arrangements are light and great to listen to. Thanks for making this CD available for those of us not lucky enough to attend a concert. - Paul

Hi Walt - sorry for not replying sooner. Yes, we got it - thanks a lot. It's great...lots of interesting ideas on there...

Hi andy. Great blog, particularly this thing about sos - live in tokyo. I'm working on some similar projects myself. You have some good ideas but unfortunately I'm struggling to get started. I've got an interest in the new live 8 concert dvd but ultimately I want to do something more personal. Anyway, keep up the good work, I'll drop by again for another visit soon. Bye.

talented Andy

I discovered your music when i came back to France from africa with the song surrender.

then I realized who swing out sister was when looking at the jacket of the album Kaleidoscope world, one day, on a terrace of a flat somewhere in Nice watching a burning hill at 7 Am with my girlfriend at that time....back to 1991.

since then your music, Corinne's voice, the arrangements, the surprises, are a gift to me, to my close friends.

just a note to thank you for the good sound u brought to us over the years.

thats it,
