"Basil For Nino" hints
at what the Cowboy Junkies might sound like with a male lead singer.
The album quivers with a Daniel Lanois-like ambiance."
TIMES PICAYUNE, New Orleans(LA)
I must begin
by saying that the packaging and presentation of this CD is very unique.
The first 2000 copies comes in a white cardboard box with autographs
from all the group members, various black and white pictures of different
people featuring the the surrounding sites of New Orleans. When you
turn over the pictures you find the lyrics of the songs. You will also
find a cloth insert with the groups name stamped on it."
The MuzikMan - online magazin
is everything and this month's award for good taste goes to Swiss native
Andi Hoffmann, now a reasonably contented denizen of New Orleans (which
is about as opposite of the Alps as you can get). Basil for Nino arrives
in a corrugated cardboard box with the actual hand-written signatures
of the band members on the back. Open it up and you find a swatch of
rather baroque fabric, eight small reproductions of Eveline Hoffman
photographs with Andi's lyrics printed on their reverse sides."
