4.0 out of 5 stars almost the best, but not quite., 8 Feb 2006
Tuzzster "wilfsdad" (el cerrito, ca United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Magpie Eyes 1982-1985 (Audio CD)
The Loft were one of the better bands in the 1st Creation wave. A mixture of Television and Orange Juice, in fact they sound like an old Postcard band. This is a re-issue of Creations 'once round the fair' with 4 additional lo-fi live cuts. A nice booklet with band members participating actively. Includes their only two singles 'why does the rain?' and 'up the hill and down the slope' (which has a fantastice version of Richard Hell's 'Time'). a janice long session from 3rd jan 85, 'winter' from 'wow wild summer' compilation, and 4 uncredited live cuts with a bad edit during one song. Minus 1 star for not adding 'your door shines like gold from 'alive in the living room' comp, not giving any info on the live tracks, or the radio session (i had to look it up in ken gardners 'in session tonight' book). They could've been bigger than the Television Personalities, but ego (apparently) got in the way.
