ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD accompanies a DVD feature film docu drama starring Ronee Blakley and famed German director Wim Wenders. Musicians featured are Rusty Anderson, who now plays with Paul McCartney and Scarlet Rivera, violinist for Bob Dylan. Ronee and Scarlet were on Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review. Bands featured are Eulogoy and The Old Dog Band. Ronee has been called "the Joan Didion of rock." Sheila Benson said the film is "passionate and brave, an absorbing film", FX Feeney said "it is a valuable document, it has life".....Ronee Blakley has recorded her songs for Elektra and Warner Bros, both available on Collector's Choice, and is known for the movie soundtrack to Robert Altman's "Nashville" available on MCA/Universal.

"I Played It For You" features live recordings produced by The Band's producer Rob Fraboni at famed Shangri La studios in Malibu, California. The film was shot by Ed Lachman cinematographer on "Traffic". Ronee has been nominated during her career for the Academy Award, Golden Globes, and Grammy and has won some international awards. This film premiered at the Venice Film Festival and was most recently seen at the Silverlake Film Festival.

The subject of the film and the songs is the love affair between Ronee and Wim, between Ronee and her music, and the work Ronee and Wim were doing with Nick Ray, director of "Rebel Without a Cause" at the time of his death in the movie "Lightning Over Water", including the recording of the title song for that film, which received best film of the year awards in Germany.
"I Played It For You' was produced and directed by Ronee Blakley Productions Inc.

I Played It For You
An amazing experience. The music from this film is incredible. For people who only know Ronee Blakley from "Nashville", this will demonstrate the depth of her talent and originality. I feel that she is one of the most gifted singer/songwriters ever and these songs are a most welcome addition to her recorded works.

I Played It For You
Have been a fan of Ronee since I was in college and Nashville came out. I bought her album Welcome on vinyl, and it is one of the albums I have kept.
This CD and DVD does not disappoint. Great music and very interesting film. So happy I was able to find it
