4.0 out of 5 stars The Ballad of Mr Snake ! 8 April 2009
By Fletch-a-sketch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A return to Kevin Ayers spiritual home of harvest sees a return to form of sorts while not scaling the highs of his first three albums this is a strong contender for level two. Strong songs such a 'Star', 'The ballad of Mr Snake' and `Blue' and a cover of `Falling in Love Again' in Kevin's best baritone voice, and backing from a cast of strong musicians make this a great album. Buy just for the fun of the music and you will not be disappointed. The bonus material 4 peel sessions and 25 minutes of `In Concert' contemporary to the album make this an example of how to re-issue an album

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely life affirming album 6 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rest In Peace Kevin, the world is a much duller place without you.

This is a very nice album. The tracks showcase Kevin Ayers whimsical and witty song writing talents. 'Star', 'Mr. Cool', 'The Owl' and 'The Ballad of Mr. Snake' all stand out for me. The weakest track in my opinion is 'Yes I do', all the others are good.
The bonus tracks are, well a bonus !

If you are looking for an introduction to Kevin Ayers, this is a good place to start.

Brought back such good memories from when my brother used to play this when I was a child. I am finding it a little difficult to locate on my hard drive!
