CLL #752 (feat. Eagle Eye Cherry) – 08/17/1998 – Monday Night Show
Source – Kevin Tape (2016)
This is the new Kevin tape, the only known source for this show that’s been missing for 18 years, I recall hearing this one live very clearly and it’s great to finally be able to restore it to the archive, it’s basically complete, truncated breaks and a few second gaps at the tape flip/10 second break and another spot or two, over 99% complete. This is his only appearance on the show. Let’s all listen again and see if it was any good.
LONG LOST EPISODE, SHARED FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME!
Cherry was born in Stockholm, Sweden, the son of jazz artist Don Cherry and Swedish painter/textile artist Monika Cherry (née Karlsson). He is half-brother of singer Neneh Cherry (his mother’s daughter) and stepbrother to singer Titiyo. Other half-brothers are violinist Jan Cherry, Christian Cherry, and jazz musician David Ornette Cherry. At the age of 12, Cherry was sent to school in New York City. He remained there to work as an actor and a drummer in various bands.
His father died in 1995. In 1996 Cherry returned to Stockholm to focus on his music rather than the acting career that had taken precedence in his professional life. He began writing and recording his debut album, Desireless, in his bedroom studio on an acoustic guitar. According to manager Tommy Manzi, Cherry’s perfectionism made him keep the recordings under wraps until the album was virtually complete. The album became a commercial success throughout the world during 1998 and 1999. Desireless sold four million copies worldwide and was certified platinum in the United States.
Cherry co-wrote and sang on “Wishing It Was” on Santana‘s 1999 album Supernatural, as well as in films such as Wim Wenders‘ The Soul of a Man, Y tu mamá también, The Love of the Game, GO, Best Laid Plans, Holes, Billy Elliot and Over Her Dead Body. Some of his best known songs include “Save Tonight“, “Falling in Love Again”, “Are You Still Having Fun”, “Long Way Around”, “Feels So Right”, “Skull Tattoo” and “Don’t Give Up”.
