Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Henry’s Dream
Henry’s Dream is the seventh album released by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, in April 1992.
Nick Cave himself was unhappy with the production by David Briggs. Briggs preferred a “live-in-the-studio” method he had used with Neil Young. This led to Cave and Mick Harvey re-mixing the album, and ultimately to the Live Seeds recordings, as Cave wanted the songs “done justice”.
It was the first album to feature long-standing members Martyn P. Casey (bass) and Conway Savage (piano, organ, backing vocals), both Australian. Savage also performs a duet with Cave in the chorus of ‘When I First Came to Town’. The album title is a reference to The Dream Songs, a long poem by John Berryman.
