If this was already written at other thread, I'm sorry.

Recently, Anneke Van Giersbergen's "Pure Air" CD was released. Some Japanese fan announced the release of this CD at some message board, so I bought it. In this CD, "To Catch A thief" was included. Anneke Van Giersbergen and Johan sung together only with Joris Dirks acoustic guitar. Of course, this song was featured in RUBICON. I wanted to ask Johan about this song in this album before he left Japan, but I could not take a chance. Johan, did you record this song again for this album? This simple version is also really marvelous!!!

Here is the answer from Johan on other thread;

To answer Tommoo's question. Yes,the whole track was re-recorded--Anneke emailed me the acoustic track while we were recording vocals on Icon 3, and I sang my part before sending it back to her in Holland.

Thanks again, Johan!

To all, get this CD too with ICON 3!!!

Wow! Thanks Bill ! I should get this CD from her site because she added her sign on the CD! I get it again, and will ask Johan to add his sign too on the next time!?

By the way, I never know Anneke well, but she likes Guns & Roses?

I'm seeing her for coffee (or Green Tea) Wednesday in Nederlande , I'll ask her about the shirt while we're comparing tattoos.

Oh, Johan, you will meet with Anneke in Holland! It is interested to know about her shirt.

Your tattoo on your left arm "God" written in Japanese (Chinese) Kanji-character can be seen. Any other tattoos?

And, it might be difficult, but I want to listen that you will sing "To Catch A Thief" with Anneke in Holland gig!

Thanks, Johan!

That would be a nice thought,but Zoetermeer is the only chance Anne-Marie gets to perform the duets before an audience. Under normal circumstances,I'm sure Anneke would like to perform TCAT,but we have a job to do, so Anneke and I will have to make do with a coffee . Also,on Thursday,she's flying to Thessaloniki, Greece, so she won't be at the Zoetemeer show.

Dear Johan,
Thank you very much for your explanation. Holland gig becomes special because Anne-Marie will appear! Which songs will she sing with you? Of course, will she take a backing vocal too? It might be secret till the gig, and I'm OK of course! Someone might post after the show. Hugh McDowell also performs with the band in Holland? It was regret that we Japanese fans could not see Hugh's playing with the band.
By the way, I ordered the Anneke's Pure Air CD via her website shop. Hope you can spend a nice coffee time with Anneke, Johan!
Best wishes, --Tomoo

I didn't know this song was re-recorded. I really have to buy that CD because I'd love to hear it. The version on Rubicon is one of the most absolutely perfect songs I have ever known in my life. The music, the vocals and the lyrics are so passionate that there isn't another song on the planet that compares to it!
