First time I’ve heard that, and whilst I do find his voice quite distressing, there’s a chance that track could grow on me.


Yep he’s a terrible singer. Sounds like a dying sheep.

Nonsense Neil - you'll be telling me Lee Jackson can't sing next!

I foolishly passed on a rare CD edition when in Rat Records recently, thinking it was in that Five Originals Of Hot Tuna boxed offering, but it is not. Went back last night but it had gone. Luckily I scored other stuff I was going back for after checking reviews - Flash, Long John Baldry, and got good stuff by Soft Machine and Humble Pie - the latter the excellent eponymous third album I have been seeking out for ages:

Image

The Hot Tuna is interesting and fully electric, little or no acoustic stuff. A short album - would suit a PSL double header some time, methinks.

I will put this here as well - from Modern Toss.

It also sums up all too well something we might actually say...

A really good album

Cloth-eared fools? You need cloth ears, or at least something over your ears to shut out the unpleasant racket Marriott and co. came up with after this album. This was definitely one of their better ones, anything after this is just excruciating. Not only that, their records had some of the worst covers in the history of recorded music.

If ever a singer lost his way, sadly it was Marriot. He should have worked it out with the Small Faces.

Indeed - particularly On the Boards

They were great live - possibly Rory's best ever rhythm section

A double CD of oddities and rarities for those like me who want to dip a toe into the extensive semi-official catalogue, now I have all the official albums.

The magnificent Calyx website tells me the sources are:

"This anthology consists mostly of otherwise available material: 1 & 3-6 on CD1 were on the "Canterburied Sounds" CDs (Vol. 1-4); CD1 track 2 on the "Daevid Allen Trio - Live 1963" CD; CD1 track 8 is from the 1967 Gomelsky demos; CD2 tracks 1-10 were on the "Live in Paradiso" CD; CD2 tracks 11/12 were on the "Live 1970" CD; CD2 tracks 13-16 on the "Facelift" (live at Fairfield Hall, Croydon, April 1970) CD; the only tracks unique to this release are CD1 tracks 7/9 (radio/TV sessions from 1967); and 17 (new recording/cover version by Hugh Hopper, Dave Stewart, Clive Brooks and Jakko Jakszyk, recorded March 2000)"
