ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
10 songs arranged by Mark Kozelek with lyrics by the legendary AC/DC singer, Bon Scott. This album is a beautiful acoustic treasure from one of the greatest singer/songwriter's of our generation.

Rolling Stone gave Mark Kozelek's debut solo album "Rock 'N' Roll Singer" 3 1/2 stars! Amazon.com awarded "Rock 'N' Roll Singer" one of the "Best of 2000."

It's been four years since Red House Painters released the critically acclaimed Songs for a Blue Guitar. While the band had wanted to focus on touring and get a break from the recording studio, legal difficulties ensured that the follow-up, Old Ramon, would be long awaited. It is only now considered for possible release later this year. But Red House Painters‚ singer and songwriter Mark Kozelek still kept plenty busy. He recorded "Find Me, Ruben Olivares" for Badman Recording Co.'s Shanti Project Collection and several tracks for Take Me Home, Tribute to John Denver released by Badman earlier this year. After spending time in Los Angeles working on Cameron Crowe's (Jerry Maguire) most recent film, "Almost Famous," Kozelek casually recorded ten tunes at Badman Recording Co. over the past year and "What's Next to the Moon" became a reality.

The album is highlighted by several AC/DC that have been part of his recent acoustic tours. Obviously, a highlight is the title track, an unusual take on AC/DC's "What's Next to the Moon." Kozelek first began playing his interpretation to attentive listeners in Scandinavia and Spain. Not everyone was ready to believe that the tune originally sprang from the Australian head-bangers. It sounded too much like another fine Red House Painters original. In what has become a Red House Painters tradition -- from Kiss‚ "Shock Me" to Yes‚ "Long Distance Runaround" -- the transformation creates an entirely new song.

"What's Next to the Moon" is available early through CD Baby. It will be in stores in mid-February.

A simple beauty!!!!
This CD is a simple beauty. Quiet, soft, and arranged in a way that one would never guess these songs are originally by AC/DC. A great tide ya over for those awaiting Old Ramon.

the most hauntingly beautiful sound
mark kozelek's voice is the most hauntingly beautiful sound; he can possess any song as his own.
accompanied here by acoustic guitar, one realizes that though these instruments are glorious together,
it is mark's breath that is his greatest gift.

Very impressive CD. While the sound differs, it reminds me of early Neil Young because you can just listen to it over and over and over again. The guitar work is extraordinary. The voice is complimentary and fits nicely with the instrumentals. I bought the album based on sample clips on this site, and since receiving it, I've been looking hard and deep for more of his work. All the cuts are good, something rare in today's world of musical trash.

Outstanding
I'm a big Red House Painters fan, and loved this CD, not even realizing until the third or fourth listen that these were AC/DC songs. Amazing, and I would not count me as an AC/DC fan at all, but this disc is just beautiful.

Big AC/DC fan
Heard of RHP before but not Mark himself and introduced to this album through my like for AC/DC ,maybe not my favourite kind of vocal sound but a great interpretation of the songs all the same,and worth a further listen to Mr Kozeleks other work.

A re-invention of AC/DC, played acoustic.
This collection of AC/DC covers is one of the most
interesting to date, spanning mostly from the Bon Scott era, You would hardly notice these songs as being AC/DC and perhaps this is the brilliance in it. Kozelek does a terrific job and everyone should run and pick this up!
