Hi, Steve-- I contacted Mark Hudson re: "It's Love," who explained that that track, as well as the album's "For Love," were both originally tracked in late 2002 during the mixing of "RingoRama" aboard Dave Gilmour's boat, and then completed/re-produced, as were the other "Liverpool 8" tracks by Ringo and Dave Stewart. "Give It a Try," I understand, may be a track originally recorded during the "RingoRama" sessions, Ringo's previous album on Koch.
Steve, You have my heartfelt appreciation for the info about the Ringo download. A friend in New York had the Daily News coupon and couldn't use it and e-mailed me the code. I was able to easily download It's Love. I have to say I love the song. I think it is better than any of the tracks on Liverpool with the exception of the title track which is a truly great song. I am delighted with it. Frank Caesar Branchini
Hey Steve - I too, was confused as the paper claimed it was "an unreleased song from his new album". Did this mean the promotion should have run a month ago before the album came out ? Or was it an unreleased song from the album sessions ? Or were they confusing "It's Love" with "For Love", "If It's Love ... ", "Tough Love", or "Love Is" ? Anyway - it turns out it is indeed an unreleased track, from the new album SESSIONS. Not bad, vintage Hudson-sounding stuff, complete with "all you need is love" lyrical references.
