Algebra - Deconstructing Classics 2Cd Papersleeve
A rarities compilation for a band that has only released two albums may appear a little weird, we know. But Algebra has a very long story, as slow as it can be, and we thought it was time to put together all the covers we have recorded over the years that were scattered on several Various Artists albums, along with extra tracks. Doing covers is not something a musician should generally be proud of, but on the other hand it represented, for us, a way to grow, because we approached other artists’ songs, since the first one recorded in 1994, with the idea of deconstructing and redoing it in our own way. So not tributes, but spontaneous reinterpretations in our own style. Later on, we applied the same criteria to some of our own compositions. Hence the title, Deconstructing Classics. The songs included on cd 1 have all been officially released except the first (featuring two immense artists and friends like Anthony Phillips and Steve Hackett) and they represent hopefully Algebra at their best over a quarter of century. Cd 2 (completely unreleased) is quite the opposite: next to songs properly recorded that for some reason were never released, there are improvisations, live songs, experiments et al. So the second cd (with reversed chronological order) may be less enjoyable than the first one, but we think it features some nice stuff too and we hope the listener will forgive any mistakes, out of tune guitars, small imperfections or wobbly rhythms.
