5.0 out of 5 stars Viv's Debut Solo LP, 19 Jun 2013
Marvelous to hear this again, restored to a new/former glory. Features a legendary cast of early 70s pioneering African musos in london such as Mongezi Feza & Gasper Lawal, the themes are distinctly afro in nature with marginal BDDB interjections. For 1974, this preceded the embrace of world music - Viv was always interested in unusual instrumentation. For a great trip back down memory lane, view the documentary that came out prior to the lp in 74: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZW0CgUdOAdI (A Week with Vivien Stanshall)

Each will wend it's way into your consciousness. There will be a favorite from this, in rotation. I could write more but I've just got play it again (& again). Definitely better than Liars which is kind of hard to imagine cos' that's pretty awesome. Sir Reality - the closer deserves special mention. These are definitely the times we are living in. Party Liqueur will have you dancing - even me and I'm 53. The novelty (sic) track Angry Birds works well. Imagination is a great opener and Serious is… Read more
