We shall overcome - SUZANNE VEGA puts Carson McCullers´ demands on resubmission

The times when the Californian-born Manhattan resident stood for folk pop hits like "Luka", "Marlene On The Wall" or "Tom's Diner" are finally over. Today, at 57, the superstar of the 80s is at home in the world of art and theatre - as a director, scriptwriter and composer. Which is why her current project "Lover, Beloved" also proves to be a mixture of a studio album and her now second stage play about the US writer Carson McCullers (1917-1967). Vega admits with a smile that she is almost a bit obsessed with her: "I have the feeling that she was far ahead of her time and suffered a lot from it. She was socially critical, bisexual, exceptionally talented and very sensitive. In addition, she was already seriously ill as a young girl, she had health problems all her life. When she was 30, she suffered a stroke and remained paralyzed on one side. Nevertheless, she worked every day, and her work is characterized by a combative touch. I admire her for that."

flight with unknown destination

On August 4th 1967 the first longplayer of the underground size Pink Floyd appeared in Great Britain with "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn". In the same year the singles "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play" had already caused a sensation. This year was one of the most groundbreaking in the history of the band. Floyd expert Glenn Povey documents this time in the following exclusive excerpt from his exquisite biography "Echoes", which has just been published in England.
