Tigers and Fireflies

Tigers and Fireflies (sometimes referred to as Tigers & Fireflies) is an album recorded in 1978 and released by Lynsey de Paul [1] in April 1979 [2] on the Polydor record label. [3] [4] [5] [6] It was launched at a special event at the Mayfair Club in London, with de Paul looking similar to the 1940s film star Veronica Lake. The album was recorded at Long View Farm Studios [7] [8] with additional recording at Mediasound Studios, New York and produced by Rupert Holmes. [9] [10] [11] [12] In his 1986 biography, Justin de Villeneuve, de Paul's manager at the time wrote "I gave Rupert Holmes a call in New York. He agreed to see me if I flew to America. Polydor, with the prospect of the involvement with Holmes, agreed to up the budget". [13] The collaboration between de Paul and Holmes on Tigers and Fireflies was mentioned on the Ray Shasho Show, when Shasho interviewed Holmes on his BBS radio show on 7 August 2018. [14] The story behind the recording of the album was also discussed in the book Dervish Dust: The Life and Words of James Coburn. [15] Speaking to Music Week about the album, Jim Cook said "Throw away all of your preconceived ideas about Lynsey de Paul". [16]



The track listing and lyrics for each song are listed on Musixmatch.com [17] as well as on Musicbrainz, [18] MusicMeter, [19] and Rokol. [20] The first album track is the lead single "Hollywood Romance" [21] [22] (co-written by de Paul and David Jordan) which was released ahead of the album in October 1978 and was well received. [23] It was BBC Radio 1 DJ Dave Lee Travis's record of the week during his time as "the Hairy Cornflake" and became a radio hit. [24] It was also released on the BBC Latin America label (together with "Don't Take Love for Granted" by Lulu (singer) and "Got To Get You Into My Life" by Earth, Wind and Fire), and it is still played on BBC radio. [25] The follow-up single "Tigers and Fireflies" [26] was released just prior to the album itself. [27] Some years later, de Paul revealed that the song 'Tigers and Fireflies' was about two of her former managers Gordon Mills and Don Arden and is about being cheated and lied to with dazzling promises. [28] [29] [30] The song is still played on the radio in Japan. [31]

Other tracks include "Losin' the Blues for You" (which was the B-side to the single version of "Hollywood Romance") [32] [33] and "Melancholy Melon", [34] both co-written by de Paul and her boyfriend at the time, [35] [36] the actor James Coburn, [37] [38] [39] Coburn was around when the album was being recorded, having flown from South America where he was filming Firepower with Sophia Loren. [40] "'Twas" is a piano bar song with a blues tinged feel and is the only song that was co-written with the album's producer, Rupert Holmes. [41] [24] [42] [43] "Before You Go Tonight" was an affectionate song for former partner Ringo Starr, who was leaving for the US while de Paul remained in the UK. De Paul teamed up with former Eurovision Song Contest writing and singing partner Mike Moran to write "Without You". [44] The album also featured a striking, updated, re-recording of her earlier hit single "My Man and Me"n that has a more bluesy feeling than the original ballad. [5] [45] The final track "Beautiful" is a song in its own right but ends by reprising snatches of each of the album's songs woven into the fade out. [46]

As noted elsewhere, de Paul's vocals had never sounded stronger, in a style somewhere between Crystal Gayle and Maria Muldaur, in spite of her apparently suffering from a bout of hay fever at the time. [13] The album was well received and garnered positive reviews in the music press, [47] with Smash Hits nominating "Hollywood Romance" and "Losin' the Blues for You" as the album's best tracks. [48]

Six of the original tracks, including the title track, "Melancholy Melon" and "Without You", were finally released for the first time on CD on de Pauls' anthology CD Into My Music in March 2013 and the original album sleeve was used for a limited issue release on Think! Records label in Japan. [49] [50] "Hollywood Romance" was not included on Into My Music - since de Paul herself oversaw the selection - and has yet to be released on CD, although it is available as a mp3 download. It still is played on BBC radio, most recently on the David Sheppard show. [51] [52]

Musicians and other credits

A number of well respected musicians played on the album, including Tom Malone who played all of the brass, reeds and flutes on the album [53] and Joel Diamond played acoustic piano. Long term Holmes collaborators Dean Bailin [54] and John Caruso [55] played various guitars and electric bass guitar, respectively. Gary Burke played drums and percussion, Bob Christianson [56] played synthesizers as well as clavinet and singing backing vocals, and former Mick Ronson collaborator Dede Washburn [57] provided percussion and backing vocals. Holmes also played clarinet and electric piano. [58] Jesse Henderson and Michael Barbiero were the engineers and Henderson mixed the album. [59] The striking photography for the front cover (de Paul hiding around a corner from a man with a torch) and back cover (de Paul marching away, hair fluttering behind her) sleeve was by John Shaw, with art direction and design by Jo Mirowski. [60]

Cover versions

Songs on the album that have been covered by other artists include "My Man and Me", recorded by Carl Wayne (as "My Girl and Me"), [61] as well as the Swedish artist Agneta Munther [62] and by the Japanese musician Hummingbird; [63] as well as "Hollywood Romance", which was given Japanese lyrics and recorded as "Romance" on the 2013 album Froggie by Japanese singer-songwriter Yoshiko Goshima (aka 五島 良子). [64] [65] [66] Lena Zavaroni also covered "Hollywood Romance" as a song and dance routine with the "Ace Eight dancers". It was the fifth number from the second episode of her first BBC prime time TV series, Lena Zavaroni and Music. [67] [68]

<i>Taste Me... Dont Waste Me</i> 1974 studio album by Lynsey de Paul

Taste Me...Don't Waste Me is the third album by the English singer-songwriter Lynsey de Paul but the second album of completely new material and de Paul also was the producer for all of the songs. It was first released in the UK in November 1974 and was the first album on Don Arden's then new label, Jet Records, later the home of ELO and Ozzy Osbourne but distributed by Polydor, although Island was soon contracted to take over distribution by Jet Records managing director Don Arden. Releases in all other countries, such as Spain, Germany, Australia, Japan and South America, were on the Polydor label in early 1975. The album was generally well received by music critics from leading magazines of the day. AllMusic journalist Craig Harris stated that "one of the first successful female singer-songwriters in England, de Paul has had an illustrious career" and lists this as one of her best albums. It was also de Paul's personal favourite album and she wrote on her music store website some years later "The Taste Me... Don't Waste Me album was a romantic collection of songs that I wrote and recorded as a relaxing, late night album", echoing earlier comments to the music press. The LP was listed as one of the best album releases of 1975 by journalist Judith Simons. It has stood the test of time in that it is listed as one of the top albums released in 1974 by online site "Best ever albums", as well as one of the top 1000 albums released in the 1970s.

<span class="mw-page-title-main">Storm in a Teacup (The Fortunes song)</span> 1972 single by The Fortunes

"Storm in a Teacup" is a song written by Lynsey de Paul and Ron Roker, that was recorded by the British group The Fortunes. The recording was arranged by Lew Warburton and produced by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway. Rod Allen later spoke about De Paul and recalled "She was great. She kept popping into Cook's and Greenaway's office loaded with songs. One day she walked in with 'Storm' and Roger was knocked out." Indeed, Roger Cook was so knocked out that he recommended that The Fortunes record the song and, upon release, it reached No. 7 on the UK Singles Chart, No. 9 on the Irish Singles Chart (IRMA), No.15 on the New Zealand singles chart and No. 65 on the Australian Kent Music Report in 1972. It also spent two weeks in the Dutch Tipparade. De Paul revealed to OK! magazine in a 1996 interview that it sold three million copies. The song peaked at No. 11 on the Adelaide, Australia 5AD Official Top 40 on 12 May 1972. It was the 84th best selling single in the UK in 1972. The song is often played on BBC Radio, most recently on the programme The Great British Songbook. In his autobiography, John Lydon stated that he loves "Storm in a Teacup" by The Fortunes, actor and singer Bradley Walsh told NME it was the first song he remembers hearing and buying, and actor John Challis stated that it was one of his favourite songs. Scottish journalist Alastair McKay describes the song as "an extraordinary thing, a swirl of pop soul". Storm in a Teacup was the name of The Fortunes album, also released in 1972 on the Capitol record label.

"My Man and Me" is a song written, recorded and produced by the British female singer-songwriter Lynsey de Paul for her second album, Taste Me... Don't Waste Me, and released as a single backed with de Paul's smoochy version of "Dancing on a Saturday Night" on 21 February 1975. It reached the UK top 40 in March 1975 and was de Paul's seventh UK Singles Chart hit. It was listed as one of the best singles of 1975 in the UK music paper Record Mirror. The song also reached No. 23 on the Radio Capital Countdown on 29 March 1975, No. 27 on the Radio Luxembourg singles chart on 1 April 1975 and No. 35 on the NME singles chart. Despite not being her biggest hit, it is rated the most played de Paul song on the BBC. Notable performances of the song include a live version for The Old Grey Whistle Test, a live performance on David Nixon's Christmas Magic shown on prime time TV on Christmas Day, and an appearance singing the song on Top of the Pops on 20 February 1975.

"There's No Place Like London" is a song co-written by Lynsey de Paul and Gerard Kenny, and held by the British Library that was published by Lynsey de Paul Music/Chelsea Publishing Co Ltd/Arlon Music/Chappell Music. It was first recorded by Shirley Bassey backed with a 54 piece orchestra, produced by de Paul and released as a single in 1986. It was her last single for the independent British record label Towerbell Records and, unusually, the song starts with the chorus rather than a verse. As well as a stand-alone single in its own right, the song was recorded to promote the London Tourist Board. A promotional video was made that featured Bassey's daughter Sharon and grandson Luke as well as de Paul and cameo's from celebrities such as Michael Caine, Spike Milligan, David Frost and Frank Bruno. It was premiered at the Royal Albert Hall, with songwriter de Paul in the audience as part of Bassey's 30th anniversary concerts. The song was well received by the U.K. press. Bassey performed "There's No Place Like London" in 1986 as part of her “Live from the Piccadilly” show as well as on the 1987 Royal Variety Performance, and ironically for her "Shirley Bassey Live" in Berlin in honour of 750 years of Berlin in 1987. She also performed the song on prime time TV on "Des O'Connor Tonight" Christmas show. The song is considered as one of Bassey's defining, signature songs and is listed as part of her essential repertoire alongside other Bassey classics.

"Strange Changes" is a song that was co-written by Lynsey de Paul and Sue Shifrin, the former wife of David Cassidy. After signing a worldwide recording contract with MCA Records at the end of 1980, "Strange Changes" was released as a single on 27 April 1981 by de Paul on the MCA label. A promo 12 inch single with an extended version of the song was also released. It also appeared on the 1981 French compilation of hits album, Hot Summer Nights, on the Arabella record label, as well as being released as a single in France. The recording was co-produced by Jon Kelly and de Paul. While the song was not immediately as commercial as many of her other hits, it had a laid back feel ahead of its time that grows on repeated listening. The British DJ and music journalist James Hamilton wrote in the music paper Record Mirror, "MCA’s mystery Fleetwood Mac-sounding ‘Strange Changes’ white label teaser turns out to be by Lynsey De Paul – oh, goodie!", with other sources also noting a similarity to Stevie Nicks. It subsequently made the UK Airplay action chart as well as the UK disco chart breakers/bubblers listing. Writing on her website, de Paul revealed she wrote this song when she was living in the United States and wanted to come back home to the UK. "It meant leaving behind a life that had taken five years to build and a long term relationship with James Coburn. I literally felt that I was going through a strange change" she said. De Paul performed the song on a number of TV programmes including the German TV series WWF Club, - a DVD of this performance was released on "WWF Club Festival 3". She also performed the song on the second episode of the UK TV music programme Razzamatazz on 9 June 1981. It was included as a track on her Hit Singles album.

The album front cover is a portrait photo of de Paul photographed by Clive Arrowsmith, and a gatefold sleeve with illustrations provided by de Paul, a nod to her previous career of designing album sleeves and song lyrics. It received favourable reviews from the mainstream music press with adverts proclaiming "the first album from this enormously talented artist" being placed in most of them. Gramophone stated "she has a neatly effective knack of songwriting and puts the numbers across in a competent manner. The Sunday Herald wrote "...her first album, Surprise, demonstrated a ready facility for melody and catchy hooks, but also a knack for sidestepping the most predictable pop clichés." Record Mirror stated "Surprise for many. They said she was a Top 50 single maker. Album with many goodies. Not a dull track. Sexy as well".
