But that’s the thing. She can still sound great in a studio setting with as many takes as she needs, and with the help of whatever gadgetry aids her. I’m not a fan of using machines to smooth out vocals (or faces for that matter) but in Christine’s case the process works wonders. Her voice on BuckVie sounded warm and sweet. Like the Christine of yore.

Agreed. It's a little heartbreaking to know that she can't do it live, though. Which is why I'd rather have a BuckVie II at this point, than another tour...

Okay, I'm lying. I want BOTH!

You should probably axe $tevie how that worked out for her, when $he wanted Silver Springs. Old Mick shot her down like a pair of Biddy's dirty granny panties.

Before he realized he could sell them for a nickel...

That’s why one of the possibilities I’m expecting is purely instrumental re-recordings, without any vocals…

Honestly, I do still think Christine can sing these songs in a studio (lots of takes, some studio machinery), but if she had I believe she would be discussing the experience of singing those songs anew.

agree! so i think for a number of reasons (including the fact she may not own right to original recordings anymore), this will have new vocals. which like you said, they were warm and nice on BuckVie.l

same - i would be happy with another BuckVie, and also with a solo Christine tour, and with both.

i love you to the moon and back, you know i do, so much! but what is with this oh so negative attitude towards Christine's new endeavor all of the sudden?

you were grateful she's out there still and even went to Fakewood tour only to see her while you still could. you watched that monstrosity of a tour just to get to see her and meet her.

but now you have no interest whatsoever in her possible solo tour, and it's 4 years later and she's even older and you'll have even less possibilities to see her?

just trying to understand your logic here. we can't have all or nothing, so why not take the best we can get?? why poopoo it?

Yes, elle, John and I are trying very hard to minimize our expectations. For us, this means talking trash about this upcoming Christine project until we know for certain that the vocals are new. If they aren’t, we can console ourselves with “Well, we knew this would be the case…”

In other words, we’re protecting ourselves!
