Format: Audio CD
Listening to this album for the first time is like walking blindfold: you don't know what you're going to bump into next. There isn't enough space on the average album to contain all of Kevin Ayers's ideas and this is no exception. The conventional, the weird, the dark and the beautiful all appear and it seems effortless.

'There Is Loving' makes great use of orchestral musicians, scaling the highest peaks and diving into the deepest troughs. 'Margaret' and 'Lullaby' are gentle and sublime, featuring strong melodies and honeyed textures. 'Oh My' and 'Champagne Cowboy Blues' are more music hall and vaudeville, not to everyone's taste but entirely valid and an essential representation of one side of Ayers's personality. You have to embrace his character in full to appreciate him. 'Song From A Bottom Of A Well' appeases the avant garde fans, a brilliantly-executed slice of the macabre. The title track is a lovingly-crafted gentle blues with a Mike Oldfield guitar solo of pure gold and 'Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes', the most commercial track, is a cool and unforgettable dose of mischief.

Even the bonus tracks shape up, all of them reflecting Ayers's droll side. 'Whatevershebringswesing' is, along with 'Joy Of A Toy', one of Ayers's classic contributions to music. It's a shame most people haven't even heard of him.

Format: Audio CD
Kevin Ayers, in my humble opinion is one of the most overlooked of British performers who emerged as part of the Cambridge Circus from the 1960's. In many ways he is very reminiscent of that other English eccentric and borderline genius, the late, greatly missed, Vivian Stanshall.
This timely re-release with additional tracks is a very welcome one for those of us who have owned the original cd for years and who have had to suffer the poor sound mastering. Here with much greater clarity is an album that is not to be missed.
The publicity surrounding this re-release mentions the contributions of some others who perhaps have achieved greater success than Ayers but whose contributions here merely enhance the originality and vitality of this album.
Kevin Ayers' albums are idiosyncratic for two reasons, the quality of the songwriting and the diverse styles and types of music which he employs. His voice is so evocative of others in the Circus such as Caravan but has a way of bringing the lyrics slowly into one's conciousness where the true value of them can be misseed when the listener is not paying careful attention. The lyrics can be subtle and oblique surreal and yet real. Or, to paraphrase another song strangely strange but oddle normal.
The musicians that Ayers plays with also compliment the musical material with it's vast range that demonstartes the breadth of Ayers musical knowledge and genius.
The album begins with an Ayers song There is Loving and Among Us written by the composer David Bedford combined together and concluded with a reprise of There is Loving. Bedford's orchestral contribution is the perfect foil for Ayers' writing but does not come off as cheesy as some other orchestral additions tend to do (on early Elton John for instance).

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Released June 2003 on EMI 07243-582778-2-1 - Tracks 1 to 8 are his 3rd album "Whatevershebringswesing" by KEVIN AYERS released January 1972 in the UK on Harvest Records SHVL 800 in a textured gatefold sleeve (51:26 minutes).

Tracks 9 to 12 are Bonuses:
9 is "Stars" - the non-album B-side to "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes" - a UK 7" single released 27 August 1971 on Harvest HAR 5042
10 is "Don't Sing No More Sad Songs" - recorded September 1972 - it was finally released on the UK compilation LP "Odd Ditties" released February 1976 on Harvest Heritage SHSM 2005
11 is "Fake Mexican Tourist Blues" - as per 10
12 is an 'Early Mix/9 July 1971' of "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes" and is Previously Unreleased

The 16-page booklet has superb liner notes by fan and musicologist MARK POWELL - a name many will know well from his stellar work on the Esoteric Label and the Underground/Prog 3CD Box Sets covering the Polydor, Vertigo, Deram and Decca labels for Universal. But the big news is a fabulous remaster by the album's original engineer PETER MEW. It was done at Abbey Road in February 2003 from original tapes and the audio quality is amazing.

When the opening 3-part string-laden "There Is Loving/Among Us/There Is Loving" exits your speakers - your hit with a sonic clarity that is wonderful and the real beauty of David Bedford's wonderfully lush string arrangements. Ayers made special mention of it on the album's inner gatefold. Both "Margaret" and "Oh My" come on as dainty old English ditties after the complex opener - but are lovely in their melodies - evocative of a vaudeville England long since past.

I FIRST BOUGHT THIS ALBUM IN THE EARLY 1970'S. IT IS A RARE MIXTURE OF SONG AND INSTRUMENTAL PIECES FEATURING A BEAUTIFUL GUITAR SOLO BY A VERY YOUNG MIKE OLDFIELD ON 'WHATEVERSHEBRINGSWESING'TO 'STRANGER IN BLUE SUEDE SHOES' AND THE FINAL RESTFUL 'LULLABY' TRACK. KEVIN AYERS DEEP, RASPY VOICE AND VARIED CONTENT OF THIS ALBUM MAKE IT ONE THAT CANNOT BE LIKENED TO ANY OTHER. FOR ME,HIS BEST WORK.
