I think the plan was to record the "rock and roll" album as something to accompany the film. Brian and the band did a handful of sessions and recorded about 18 minutes' worth of material, but that wasn't enough for a record. I also think that the sessions, regardless of what you see in the film, didn't go particularly well.

BW then had the bad spinal surgery (and an attempt to repair it) after the bulk of the sessions and has been in rough shape since.

I do suspect that "I'm Broke" would have been part of the new sessions, as they played it live a handful of times in recent years, along with the "Honeycomb" cover. The rest of the Paley stuff is filler, although well-chosen given the subject of the film. (Must be a Miracle sounds like a re-recording from the late 90s or early 00s.)
I can believe that. Thanks for the info.

In case anybody was still wondering, while I downloaded this when it came out, I did finally snag the physical CD. It does indeed exist.

I'll say it again: this is a great album, and I consider the promise of R&R album fulfilled.
Please understand me: I was DREADING that No Pier Pressure (a fairly good album which I don't really like) would be the last I would hear from Brian, and above all that The Last Song (a great song which I hate) would REALLY be his last song.
Instead...
First the ultra-stellar piano album... I still haven't the words for that. There are no words for such a thing. In any case, completely from the left field.
Then Long Promised Road... the medley of the Paley album and the R&R album! Completely from the OTHER left field, if you take my meaning.
And, at the moment, the latest Brian song is ROCK & ROLL HAS GOT A HOLD ON ME, where Brian asserts again himself as the real KING OF ROCK & ROLL.

Brianista, I know. But then, I am also a Mike Lover etc. Can't help myself.

My only complain is that they should have released At My Piano and Long Promised Road as a double album. Just to mess with people's minds. Smiley

This is hitting vinyl at independent record stores on 11/25/2022. https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/15488



As completely indifferent towards this album as I am, I admit I wouldn't mind snagging a vinyl copy of it.

Opposite here, love the album but don't care about the vinyl.

Where did you find it? Was it pricey?
I'm not too impressed with today's vinyl.
