Well done H. Never has there been so much concentrated enjoyment in one LP; and at a bargain price too. I like the line: 'We don't test them, we count them. One, two. Congratulations! (You will need to find the song to discover the meaning)
aha! so you were in the bidding mix too Deepinder! we both got outbid in the end... someone wanted this one badly... me thinks the nice promo release sheet helped add a little extra encouragement for the 5 bidders to fight it out!
Charles Drake was a gifted musician and songwriter amongst his other talents like blowing his fortune at the casino. He even won the Golden Rose of Montreux for his 1812 Overture film which is a classic, with his especial performance on timpani. I 'm not sure if he made an LP ( I would like to know) , but the MFP album the accumulation of his singles is an essential purchase. I'm too heavy for the Light Brigade is a favourite.
Phil Collins has stated that he played on this , along with Robert Fripp and Keith Tippett. I'm sure I read elsewhere that Sandy Denny is on it too. It seems a rather stellar cast for what is essentially a piece of whimsy.
