Berlin 2013 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Radio Eins Studio, Berlin, Germany; January 15, 2013. Excellent FM broadcast.

At the beginning of 2013, singer-songwriter Ron Sexsmith was in Berlin promoting his 13th studio album, Forever Endeavour. With the exception of All In Good Time and Paul McCartney’s Listen To What The Man Said, the rest of the tracks performed in this acoustic set were from the new album, which would only be released on February 5.

Nick Freed, at, wrote:

His newest album, Forever Endeavour… an album of tightly-packed pop goodness. Sexsmith is at his best when he doesn’t try to do too much. Songs like the jaunty “Nowhere Is” and the slow-rolling “Lost in Thoughts” are simple country-folk structures that showcase Sexsmith’s old soul vocal with rising and falling strings and slide guitars. The latter track could easily be a ’70s Leonard Cohen cut (who’s another strong supporter of Sexsmith), gliding over the ears like a sea breeze.

“Sneak Out the Back Door” lets Sexsmith’s words take front and center - just him and his guitar. He tells the story of a relationship falling apart and how he’s “never been good at saying good-bye” so he’s just going to “sneak out the back door.” The old sad-words-over-jolly-melody trick works fantastically - especially at the end, when he sings, “When my life is over/gonna sneak out the back door/Hadn’t much of a Midas touch/No luck for sure/Give my regards to the people in charge/As I sneak out the back door.”

Thanks to Manillo who recorded the show and shared the tracks at Dime.

  4. not if people like the new rod cd. its very good. and u dont like todd? or cheap trick? iggy isnt for everyone i understand. how much of old crow medicine show have u heard? theyre incredible.
    since u like musselwhite/harper the pair did wonderul performances on leno in jan. kimmel a month later. a chicago radio station 2 weeks after that. i was sure there was another performance but since i dont have it i guess there wasnt one. there was a half hour program about the making of the album and there were live performances during that. i think it was on vh1classics or pbs. i dont remember. it was superb.

    i sure hope hugh laurie does some appearances for his new cd. altho its not coming out in the states til sept. it comes out in england may 6th. i got it a week or so ago and its wonderful of course. i got a 47min video called down by the river that was on pbs here in a slight variation back in 2011 and i saw him perform here in ohio last year. hes extraordinary. i took the video which includes live performances and made an audio of it so i can put it on a cd and listen to it.
