This is a glorious record. Arguably on of Wyatt's best. Made during those exciting Rough Trade days when punk was moving off into 360 versions and great singles were popping up on a weekly basis. What we have here is Robert taking on songs by Chic, Ella Fitzgerald, Ivor Cutler amongst others and laying his own unmistakable blueprint over them. Personal favourites are his very own "Born Again Cretin", a slow scat breeze through his thoughts on Revolution and the universe. Another cracker is his take on "Stalin Wasn't Stallin'", a 1940's redneck ode to Uncle Joe before the weight of McCarthyism hit. Bizarre, ironic and a fantastic pop song to boot. I have been listening to this collection for 15 years and don't see a time when I will ever tire of it.
