So, looking at this poster for the new tour, it proclaims that Richard will be playing songs from These People.

Has he actually played all the tracks live across the gigs he done in the past year. What ones haven't played yet.

Also, are there any album tracks from previous albums that never got included in a live setlist.

From all his albums he hasn't played live yet the following songs:

From "These People": Picture of You, Songs of Experience and Everybody Needs Somebody to Hurt.

From "United Nations of Sound": Life Can Be So Beautiful.

From "Keys to the World": Simple Song and World Keeps Turning.

From "Human Conditions": Man on a Mission.

From "Alone With Everybody": Crazy world and Slow Was My Heart.

I'm not very sure about Man on a Mission though.

What a cavalcade of tunes to pick from and RPA opted to leave these mighty ones out of his set lists. If it was me, I'd ask the ticket tout for a £10 refund.

I remember the first time I heard Crazy World back in 2000, and suddenly being aware that something had gone horribly, horribly wrong.

I got that same feeling hearing Money To Burn. Then Bright Lights, Man On A Mission, Music Is Power, Words Just Get In The Way, Simple Song, World Keeps Turning & Sweet Brother Malcolm reinforced those feelings.

I remember hearing MTB for the first time. I was working in Korea and, although the album had come out, I couldn't get a copy immediately.

But someone sent me a sound file of MTB. Sat in my hotel room, I can remember the very moment it started playing.

I just cocked my head, like a very confused labrador.

I recall buying the CD & putting it on in the car while driving to take an exam. I liked most of it, though I wasn't thrilled with some of the songs. I recall feeling underwhelmed once You On My Mind came on. I had parked my car while Money To Burn was on and sat listening until it finished. That's when I got my first taste of disappointment with Richard Ashcroft.
I still like the solo debut the best of his solo stuff, but it's flawed and he's never rebounded.
Amazing the stuff you recall, I remember that like it was yesterday.

It helped that Richard was practically given a blank check to spend how much he wanted on AWE (and probably HC), and able to hire the best session musicians. When HC failed to meet sales expectations, he had to work with lesser talented musicians on KTTW. Now he's forced to pay for sub-tier talent. That doesn't get Richard off the hook for how awful his records are though.

Yes, "(Could Be) A country thing, city thing, blues thing".

One of the reasons I've been surprised that you all hate These People quite as much as you do is that Alone With Everybody seems reasonably well-respected even though I'd say it's his weakest album other than UNOS. It benefits from ** Cole and the lushness of the sound some of the time but the production overcompensation for not having Nick and Si there gets to drowning some fairly slight songs. It works the first couple of tracks but really gets bogged down in New York and You On My Mind, as solid as the writing is, Crazy World is a relief to at least move a little bit after those. Money to Burn is a middling Elvis/Spiritualized pastiche, On a Beach and C'mon People were botched, and Slow Was My Heart is maybe the only other track where the thick production adds something, it's like a stab at Valium Skies.

Too bad RPA hasn't been playing Picture of You, one of the best from the new album and one which I'd think anyone who liked the Northern Soul b-sides would have to appreciate.

AWE truly sounds like a Robbie Williams record.

I've never heard that song, and judging from the title, I don't think I ever will.

You're missing out; it's fantastic, as are most of the AWE b-sides.

God dammit! Every time I see a comment like this and then I actually go and listen to the song, I get burned.

I can't see the connection between an awful song and the brilliant b-sides of A Northern Soul...

DQFFT. Could be the last song on earth or could be not the last song on earth I would never listen to it bc like almost every solo RA song just the titles alone are pretentious and trite.
