Hi Kitsune,

I don't know her music at all.  What's it like and what did you enjoy about it?   :)

Best wishes,

PD

Great album, love the way in which the songs were embellished out of all proportion to provide excuses for the organ and guitar extravaganzas 8).

Indeed!

Odd that "Hush" doesn't turn up on any of their live albums. Looking into the song on Wikipedia I also note there's a version out there by the Partridge Family...

Hey, George. I don't do lists of favourites etc. but if I did that would always be in the top ten, at least.

Yeah, it's a spectacular album. And it sounds less digital on the Mobile Fidelity SACD.

I thought I remembered a live one. Ah yes, it’s on the 2 CD version of the Concerto For Group And Orchestra with Malcolm Arnold and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. I don’t play that one so much.

I don't know that album George.  Interesting cover:  does it relate to one of the songs?

I'm not sure. I am more familiar with the Collins (as singer) era, myself.

I found this on Wiki:

"Sleeve design[edit]
The album cover is a painting by Betty Swanwick titled The Dream.[33] Swanwick had designed posters for London Transport between the 1930s and 1950s.[27] The original painting did not include a lawn mower; the band had Swanwick add it later as an allusion to the track "I Know What I Like" because Swanwick told them she did not have enough time to paint a new picture for the cover.[33]"

That was interesting, thanks. I guess what I meant though was I'm surprised it didn't get developed over the years into a 20 or 30 minute workout the way some of their other songs did. I suspect it has something to do with changes in band members.

MOLOCK on Bandcamp webpage on label noisy hell production, very nice it drone , it's rehash material , no publicity stunt here , either you like or you not, I'm a noisician, but there good and bad noise, musical noise or orchestrated noise is still semi musical, there is a pattern in harshness, not just a wall of sound of death.

It's black metal whiteout metal in it, see that It.

I enjoy the results so far there a track I cannot upload too long and cutting a track online complicated for a noobs to thecnology via web ..
