Paal Flaata – Love and Rain: The Athletic Sessions.

In the spring of 2017, Paal Flaata and Gøran Grini went back to Athletic Sound studio, where they have years of experience of recording, starting with the album ”In Demand” in 2001. Their idea was to make an album of bonus tracks for the new boxed set of songwriters albums. Unsurprisingly, the recordings began to live a life of their own, and ended up as a stand-alone album, which was given the title ”Love and rain: The Athletic Sessions”. In addition to the newly written title track by Chip Taylor, this album also inclueds a song by Mickey Newbury. You will also find songs of Kris Kristofferson, the legend Donnie Fritts, country giant Conway Twitty, Charlie Rich and ”Mr American Pie”, Don McLean.
But since Flaata and Grini live by the motto ”For the sake of the song”, it’s also the case that two of the songs on ”Love and Rain: The Athletic Session” were not even composed by Americans, but by two Englishmen: folksinger, poet and political activists, Evan Macoll and Elvis Costello.
MacColl contributes with ”The first time ever I saw your face”, while the choice fell om Costello’s ”The Comedians”. The choice of ”The Comedians” is a good pointer about what ”Love and Rain: The Athletic sessions” is about. Songs that have always been classics, classics in the true meaning of the word.
