Wilson Wednesday – Mr Wilson

Continuing my trend of trying to keep you on your toes, this week I provide a song rather than an artist, none other than Mr Wilson by John Cale.

The song is essentially a tribute to the Beach Boys Brian Wilson, from the former Velvet Underground’s John Cale. It comes from his Slow Dazzle album.

I think there are a few John Cale fans that frequent this blog, so there is nothing I could tell you about him that you don’t already know. My knowledge is quite limited – I only have the Paris 1919 album, (love that title track!)

Truthfully, this week featured track actually didn’t do a lot for me. It might be one where repeat listens are rewarded, but there wasn’t enough there to hook me into a repeat listen.

As for Mr Wilson – you never know, he might pop up on here in the future, but perhaps he is a very obvious choice for inclusion!

Over to you – what do you think of this one?

One thought on “Wilson Wednesday – Mr Wilson

  1. Doesn’t do much for me, either! Not a great fan of John Cale or the Beach Boys, so can’t offer anything very constructive, sorry!
