At last - this album has finally found an official release over 20 years after it was first launched, (in Australia and Canada only). And it has stood the test of time ! Like your music soulful, passionate and raw ? Like brass sections ? Like hammond organ sound ? Buy it now, you will not be disappointed!

So. "Long lost", "much loved" and all the other usual platitudes that go with "missing" LPs. If you are aware of the band you'll have got this the first week of release. If you have a space in your heart for anything even remotely linked to the enigma that is Kevin Rowland you'll have got it by now. So, what about those of you who don't really know what to expect? Imagine a gang that have traded their knuckle dusters for brass instruments. Drop in the best set of lungs this side of Tom Jones (and add a shedload more charisma) and the hammond organ of one Michael Talbot esq and the outcome is probably going to sound passionate, intense, powerful and full of Soul. That this band didn't rise and rise probably says more about the public at large than the Bureau. This is a tour de force and there's not a duff track on here. As for the live LP? That's even better - you can feel the sweat dripping off the ceiling when listening to it. Put it next to Otis, Wilson Pickett and if they ever tour again beg, steal or borrow the means to catch this outfit. Cherish the sound captured here.

I was lucky enough to see this band on a few occasion back in the day, but the very first time sticks in the mind clearest as they weren't even a band at the time!

Let me explain.

Dexys were on tour just as Geno was beginning to break on the radio and, as the tour was rolling into (relatively nearby)Swindon at The Brunel Rooms, a coach trip was hastily arranged from my local boozer in Gloucester. The tour was a three band bill featuring funk band The Black Arabs, still cashing in on their albeit brief connection with the Pistols Rock and Roll Swindle film, and a totally unheard of band called The Upset.

The Black Arabs were dreadful, but The Upset came on and absolutely blew evryone away. Their sound was pure Stax, with the greasiest sounding horn section that even put the headliners to shame. They only played for around 30 minutes but that was enough.

Fast foward to Rowland's petulant split from the original incarnation of Dexys towards the rubbish that involved violins instead of saxophones, and an announcement in the music press the The Bureau would shorly be issuing a debut single along with dates to follow.

Imagine the surprise at Only For Sheep, it put Dexys to shame. The live dates confirmed that the band had formed from the ashes of Dexys and The Upset, and their live shows were truly astonishing. I was fortunate enough to get to know the band and was truly blessed to have an advance copy of the original release of this album. The legal wranglings that eventually scuppered the release, and indeed, that of the bands career was an absolute travesty.

Great to see this available again, but a shame that the band couldn't bask in its undoubted glory when it was originally conceived.

The Bureau should have been huge and would have been but for legal wrangles and a bent manager. In thier prime they blew The Specials off stage (in Coventry) and were simply awesome, Dexys brass, true English soul and no pretensions. Everyone who loved early Dexys will love this, Only For Sheep, Let Him Have It, It's Got To Be Now and many more. An honour to own (and I have done since the early 80's) and a joy to listen to.
