As the titles suggest there is a connection between the two and they seem to go together like a kind of concept album. The listener gets an inside peek into, and an overview of, the singer songwriter’s life and work over a 40-year career.
The basis for the new songs on ‘Presents Of The Past’ was recorded live with an acoustic combo in a small theatre without an audience. The songs breathe an atmosphere of timelessness, rich with roots music influences and traditional instruments. The M.O. of ‘Requests Revisited’ is more of a studio production with arrangements for band, strings and guest musicians.
The common thread throughout both discs is acoustic under-and-overtones, with musicianship always serving the lyrics. The arrangements are sparse yet effective, with upright bass, percussion, guitars, keyboards, banjo, accordion, harmony vocals and even a gospel choir.
Vanderveen comments: “It started with the idea to re-record the requests I’ve been getting at live shows through the years, since many of those songs are not available on CD anymore.
It almost felt like I was covering myself, but during the work on ‘Requests’ the new songs also kept coming. They seemed to have more of a vintage-roots character to them and asked for a slightly different approach.”
