The Lost Madonna Tapes

21 10 2008

For the better part of last night AND this morning, I tried to get this video uploaded and wordpress just wouldn’t let me do it (you’re a jerk, wordpress). I have to post about it, though, because it’s just so friggin’ awesome. So, please go to this article on The Daily Beast, read up, and listen to the lost Madonna tapes. Here’s an excerpt from The Lost Madonna Tapes

Madonna biographer Andrew Morton offers a previously unreleased tape that includes Madonna singing some of the first ever songs she wrote. The tape was made by Ed Gilroy and his brother Dan, Madonna’s ex-boyfriend, who lived with the singer in the basement of a Queens synagogue.

The audio below is a combination of Madonna’s acceptance speech when she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, interspersed with her early recordings. Says Morton, “It is sweet and raw. It signifies to me how far she has come, a reminder of the explosion of talent.”
