Big Beat is releasing John Cale: Conflict & Catalysis: Productions & Arrangements 1966-2006 on February 27.

as a producer, you've got to be a catalyst, an ally, a co-conspirator. sometimes you need to introduce conflict.' - john cale in his autobiography. film directors have always been lionised by their industry and by fans who made household names of ford, hitchcock and spielberg. record producers, on the other hand, have by-and-large laboured in near-anonymity outside the music business and the most devoted of followers. to help remedy that situation ace have instigated their producers series, focusing on the studio output of jack nitzsche, jerry ragovoy, kim fowley, phil spector, brian wilson, martin hannett and other visionaries who lived to bring the sounds in their heads to the grooves of a record. another master of the art was john cale, whose work as a producer and arranger they spotlight on this 75-minute 20-tracker. far from anonymous as a cutting-edge performer, cale has enjoyed a lower profile in his parallel role as a producer throughout his lengthy career. spanning 40 years, our collection includes everything from the proto-punk of the stooges and modern lovers to left-field pop princesses lio and cristina. compilation and notes by mick patrick and neil dell.
