Banned by the record label. Well, one song, anyway. The closest we'll ever come to another 430 N. Harper Ave. Out-takes and early performances, plus "Cuba", the song that broke hearts, promises, and my bank account. This one feels like an old show.

Album Notes
O.K. kids, here it is. Hot off the press. You wanted more acoustic stuff. you wanted more songs that sound like they (a'hem) almost made 430 N. Harper Ave. And you wanted to hear Cuba. Well, here you go!

What's that? You say you always wondered why some songs I've played live over the years never made it onto a CD? It's because sometimes the mood to record it would pass, and all that was left was a (sometimes very) flawed take. So here you have five or six tracks that I NEVER would have let out there, except that some of you are so charming that you've made me think that anything I ever recorded is worth listening to. Now, I know that's not the case, but after going through a bunch of stuff, I've selected these songs - they seem like a pretty good listen for everybody. There might be one silly song too many, or one lyric too few, the few friends I've tried it out on report many listens in a row and a peaceful feeling overtaking them.... BELIEVE!

I'm kidding. I'm a kidder. This CD has CUBA, one of the few best songs I'll ever write. Banned by the record label and lost to the Warner vault for all time, this is the only extant mix of the song. I loved it totally dry, but here it is with a little 'verb, etc.

So. Please buy this CD and support my artistic lifestyle :) Or buy two and support me while giving a friend the musical equivalent of a hug and then a little jumping up and down together. Because I'm told that's what it is... Or buy TEN and whimsically open up a music store in your neighborhood. Oh, you'll go broke in time, but not before you've made all kinds of new friends and heard tons of cool music. Plus, some bands will come by and give you free t-shirts and stuff. And maybe the quiet guy from the sandwich shop next door - or the girl who works across the street whom everybody wonders about because she's so pretty but never talks to anyone and seems a little sad - will start dropping by for little talks.

Then maybe start bringing sandwiches by and having lunch with you on the counter by the register. And more sweet stuff like that, until one day you end up in a crazy make-out session in the front of the store. Then that'll probably be weird for a little while. Or maybe it'll be awesome and the start of your new life together. It's your choice, really. Music changes everything...

Ok so firstly I wasn't expecting much from this album as Jude himself in the blurb above seems pretty down on it but wow I loved it. Cuba the title track is catchy and like the Jude we love. I especially liked the rider comes which reminded me a bit of Johnny Cash and yes there are some 'silly' songs like the Helmut Dance but they are fun and catchy too and what is wrong with music that puts a smile on your face.
Couple that with a reasonable price helped by the exchange rate Dollar to pound and fast delivery all in all I thoroughly recommend this album.


Laughs & Emotion
it's like going into Jude's attic and finding this old tape where he used to record some riffs, melodies and catching phrases. We're discovering bribes of what brought him where he is today. Particularly recommended if you liked the first albums! (My favorites so far : Prima Ballerina and the second version of The Rider Comes)

lovely little cd called cuba
Jude is a wonderful songwriter...this cd Cuba is more affirmation of his brilliance :)
come to Australia Jude?!


Jude baby !
brilliant! ...as usual :-)
I share Julien's advice about "on the dancefloor"

Valentin Rocher

Very good
So good to have a new Jude CD...Very good songs.


We I want to hear a great artist, I buy the CD
I will never pay for a MP3, that's final, I would prefer to buy the Cd and even import it to get the real sound with the real dynamics of the artist, not that Compressed Crap.
Sorry but I had to say this, I love your music, and I do love those songs too!! I've been a great fan for years, I've always bought your Cds... but seriously... make it real .


Love it!
Not as beautiful as No One Is Really Beautiful, King Of Yesterday, or Redemption (all of which are among my favorite records), but this sure is a fun record! Every time I hear it I like it more. And the title track is definitely one of his best songs. And if Jude would come over to play in the Netherlands, things would be really great! ;-)


jude, as usual...
still amazing...
I love it ;-)


thank you !
bonjour from france ... and THANK YOU for this excellent album.
I discovered Jude in Tourcoing, a really good concert. He was very friendly with the public.
And what a voice !! and greats songs.
the song cuba is one of my favourite.
Vive Jude ! & MERCI !!


Great CD! The words, the voice, the acoustic guitar.. all very good. I think the best songs are at the begging and towards the end of the CD. Love "Cuba"...
