Kevin was the epitome of the 'hippie brigade' of the early 1960's emanating from the 'Canterbury scene'. His early work with the Soft Machine was only the start of his long and winding road of exploration into his own otherworldy ventures.
If you enjoy being taken for a ride through another's fertile imaginings and dalliances, this is the set for you?
With a voice to die for and an imagination to match, there are few to match our dearly departed friend.
May he rest comfortably in his own version of eternal peace (and I hope it is warm enough for him, too?).
For the price is stunning and all of the 5 have had their sound remastered.
True there are no extra tracks which is a shame because there are a few kicking around like the Old Grey Whistle Test ones for example which would have been a wonderful bonus and added to the buyer's interest I believe.
However the remastered sound may be enough to entice anyone who alread may have a couple of Kevin Ayers Cds already.
On the other hand if you have then on vinyl and they are worn out or scratched then you really are on to a winner.
5CD set comes in a simple and easy to store Card case and all the CDS have the LP replica sleeves.
The Cds are"Joy Of A Toy" (1969),
"Shooting At The Moon" (1970),
"Bananamour" (1973) and
"The Confessions Of Dr Dream & Other Stories" (1974)
A steal at this price and they will become collectors items in a few years time?
PS Mr Chris Geezer Butler has been kind enough to tell me that "if you want extra tracks from this era from KA, the single cd issues have them."
He quite rightly says that 'the point is, these original album sets are just that, original albums." He also adds that
" if you can afford to be ten quid lighter in the pocket each month, sign up to Spotify, his extended albums are all there. Just stream from your device to your hi-fi, with one of the fine dacs that are on offer from here. The quality can be somewhat surprising."
Now whilst agree with his point that these are the original albums that is what we are buying.

I have all these albums on Vinyl and for those who are lucky enough to be in that boat will know how great those album sleeves were, for me that is the only let down, you get a very basic package, but the music makes up for that and more, the sound quality is superb and for value this is second to non. For me this is a truly great package.
