Kentroversy Tapes Podcast # 01 (May 28, 2007)

Introducing The Kentroversy Tapes podcast -- interviews with some of today's most fascinating people

by Kentroversy

Welcome to the first episode of The Kentroversy Tapes podcast. For this debut episode, I have an interview with someone whom I admire greatly, musician David Baerwald, who is perhaps best-known for his work with Sheryl Crow and in the Hollywood film Moulin Rouge, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination for his love song duet Come What May, sung by the two leads Nicole Kidman and Ewan MacGregor near the very end of the film.

Even though today he works as a film composer, songwriter, and producer, David is also responsible for my favorite album of the entire 1980's decade, the album Boomtown, which was released in the late spring of 1986, by David Baerwald and his partner of the time, David Ricketts -- recording as 'David + David.' In 1992, David released the politically-charged album 'Triage,' which featured many politically oriented protest songs, as did its' accompanying 'Triage Short Film' which was directed in part by Gore Verbinski, of Pirates of the Caribbean fame.

In all, David and I take a look at his life in music, a career that has lasted the past twenty years. In a business that is all too often fickle, it is a rarity for anyone to still be a viable contender two decades into their music career, and in the case of David Baerwald, it is us, who have been the lucky ones -- for we get to experience such great music and lyrics from one of my all-time favorite songwriters.

NOTE: The sound quality of the following recording is not of adequate quality, as far as I am concerned. However, this is a learning experience, and this Tuesday, I am upgrading my recording setup to a higher quality digital setup. Sorry for the inconvenience, and rest assured, I am already working on a better quality set-up for the next podcast.

Thank you for your understanding of this matter.

Kentroversy Tapes Episode # 01 - David Baerwald (May 28, 2007)

In July 2004, I published an 133 page overview of both David Baerwald's career and the Triage album. It can be downloaded by clicking on the following link (please do not right-click link):

David Baerwald Triage Study Module (PDF Download) (July 14, 2004)

What the 'David Baerwald Triage Study Module' is, is a 133 page overview of David's career, along with an in-depth examination of the subjects covered in the Triage album and Short Film, which is available on DVD from the David Baerwald Infosource website, the link for which is below. This is the most in-depth account of David's work that has ever been published by anyone.

I would like to thank the following people for their assistance in making sure David had the time to talk with me:

Sarah and Becker, Andrea, and most of all, David Baerwald himself.

I would also like to thank Dan Heatherly of the David Baerwald Infosource, for producing such a wonderfully excellent two-DVD presentation of David's work.
