Waiting: The Van Duren Story
 
Waiting: The Van Duren Story Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: Van Duren
 
 
Quantity:
 

Memphis musician Van Duren had it all going for himself. He was managed and produced by Andrew Loog Oldham (The Rolling Stones) in the 70’s, he was a contemporary of Big Star and was in a post-Big Star band (Baker Street Regulars) with Chris Bell and Jody Stephens, and had made a debut album, “Are You Serious?”, that had some people comparing him to Paul McCartney. But instead of being the next big thing, he faded into obscurity.  Though he didn’t break through with his debut, and a second album was recorded and shelved (eventually released in 1999), Van continued making music. With his band, Good Question, he had a regional hit with the song “Jane” that had record companies sniffing around, but again, to no avail.  Forty years later and a world away, two Australians, Wade Jackson and Greg Carey, came across Duren’s lost album, fell in love with the music and set out to discover what went wrong. They tracked Van down on Facebook and despite having never picked up a movie camera, they journeyed to the U.S. to meet him and tell his story.  Along the way, they crossed paths with rock stars, Scientologists, and a host of talented musicians who never quite made it. The film took them to North America, Columbia, Japan and back to Australia, staying true to their pledge to finish the film and shine light on Van Duren.  Van’s lost career is a parable of the trials and tribulations of the music industry—an industry that leaves countless broken dreamers behind in its wake. “Waiting: The Van Duren Story” is a celluloid and digital love letter to the artist and his music that should have helped define a generation. “The music reminds us of Duren's unshakable artistry and the possibilities of what might have been if fate was less fickle.  Of course, the time is now ripe for fate to right those past wrongs as both the film and its soundtrack wow a new generation of music fans with their poignant tales and raw artistry.  Listeners can hear Duren's own artistry via the track ‘Grow Yourself Up’. It arrives at the intersection of the beautifully heartsick (and Laura Nyro-influenced) Todd Rundgren in his early days and the hazy, sun-tinted sounds emerging from American south in years after Beatlemania inspired a generation to seek out strange new sonic worlds. The production is unfettered by the trappings of the time as the song (and Duren himself) sings with a purity of spirit music lovers will instantly recognize as something singular, authentic.” – PopMatters.com  GREAT!!
