Hey, Rick: Is the 4-cd box "Songs for Insane Times"? That got a great review in MOJO. I didn't get it because I knew I was just going to buy all the single cds anyway and they all have good to great extra cuts and above average booklets. The EMI group has done some nice archival work in the last decade, and the Kevin Ayers single disc cd remasters are a good example
thanks for the add, Rick. Yeh, In a fit of nostalgia for prog last year I dove into the UK stuff I'd never heard before and read all about the Canterbury Scene. Caravan are easily the most tuneful and melody is what I love above all else in music. I consider them a major musical discovery at age 47. Kevin Ayers, the man who left Soft Machine after their first lp, is the other major discovery. He is a genius. Whimsical, horrifying. Tunes could be from the thirties one minute; predictive of today's "noise" the next. He can do it all. Check him out if you haven't. Most Americans have never heard of him, either.
Oh, yeh...and please check out my songs, obscurely buried in the left hand column of my profile.
