I hope you have a strong constitution *biggrin*
I didn't get all the way through it. I don't mind extreme filth, but it has to make me laugh, and it wasn't really. I'll play the second side sometime soon.
Back in the day, I found some of it really funny, but there's quite a bit of dross too. I suppose back then there was the shock value.

I didn't get to it if it does.

I have 'Come Again' as well, and I definitely prefer that album as it's got loads of classic sketches on it. My fave sketch of theirs is probably 'The longest trail of snot', absolutely obscene, but painfully funny. *biggrin*

We've dug my wifes LPs out of the shed and just going through them....



... makes a change from gnarled old 70's blues rockers.

"Giving It All Away", what a great song even if I prefer Roger Daltry's version.

Both good records, Freddy. Most John Mayall second-hand records are scratched to buggery so be careful when buying a new copy: I've got a crackly stereo and a pretty good mono. I think ;Flat Baroque and Beserk' and 'Stormcock' are my fave Harper's, although I do like'Flashes From The Archives Of Oblivion.' He used to be great live.

Nick Drake-'Pink Moon.' One of the few records that genuinely make the world stop/go away.

Hiya Jim. I actually saw Roy Harper at the Colston Hall, here in Bristol, maybe '72? Part of the 'Lifemask' tour. It was a great night with surprisingly lots of laughs, he really connected with the audience. 'Flat Baroque' and 'Stormcock' are my favs too, I never tire of hearing them, lovely rich guitar and great songs, imo. From my perspective, he's an unsung hero. ATB...Freddy

Oh yes, stevebrock, you are so right. In my opinion the must underrated British band of all time. 'Spooky' is a brilliant album, but I think 'Split' is even better with incredibly powerful songs ( youtube 'Light from a Distant Star' and 'Desire Lines' ) and beautiful extended guitar work-outs. The last album, the rather poppy, 'Lovelife' is also often overlooked. The British music press, especially NME, slagged them off and were keen to point out that they partied rather too often for their own good or for the good of the music.I think a lot of people thought they were just having a laugh and were party animals: how wrong they were.

On my list too, Steve. I don't have a copy. Got a couple of blokes looking for one for about a year now but it seems pretty scarce. I don't buy online but I guess you could get one off ebay or discogs. I know quite a few people who reckon it's the best album of the 90's and I think it's there or thereabouts.

I was into quite a few 4AD bands during that golden period, but weirdly never purchased any Lush stuff apart from a cassette single of 'Sweetness And Light', which I think is a great track.

I'm not sure if you guys have heard it, but the 2nd Pale Saints album 'In Ribbons' has an original member of Lush - Merial Barham - on it, and I think it's an absolute gem of an album, and so underrated.
