4.0 out of 5 stars Elite of British session musicians, 1971, 8 Aug 2011
Golovanov Alexey (Limassol, Cyprus) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Ugly Custard (Audio CD)
Excellent studio project, strictly instumental, recorded in 1970 for Kaleidoscope by top British session musicians (see below). Collection of 8 covers (Scarboro Fair, My Babe, Hung Upside Down) and original compositions of Alan Parker.

Ugly Custard was: Alan Parker - talented guitarist, graduate of Royal Academy of Music, whose other projects include Blue Mink Melting Pot - The Best Of,Hungry Wolf, The Congregation and Collective Consciousness Society. He also appears on numerous albums (uncredited), but one can hear him on Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man", The Walker Brothers and David Bowie's. Next comes Clem Cattini (Clemente Anselmo Cattini) - veteran drummer, who was also with Hungry Wolf and Jeff Beck. Herbie Flowers (bass) recorded with T.Rex. Roger Coulam (organ and keyboards) is also well established name in music.

The album was initially produced for continental market (where it appeared with different artwork of blind doll, more impressive), and then was available in the UK as another good collection of British Library Music (no wonder - Ugly Custard previously recorded as Alan Hawkshaw's "The Mohawks" - outdated, nostalgic music still full of charm The Champ).

The great advantage of the album - it is not ruined by sub-standard vocals. In fact, add good vocals to the tracks, and we'll get an accomplished project - better than "revival" or "retro" 70s rock.

Another album from the same collection is worth listening to - "Distortions" by Blue Phantom Distortions

Ugly Custard,gotovo anoniman projekt pod kojim su bili vrh kreme britanskih studijskih glazbenika Cattini,Flowers,Parker i ostatak manje poznatih!Album je pun glazbenog umjeca i kompetentnosti!Prema ovoj ekipi imam veliki respekt zbog njihove reputacije cije snimke uvjek ostavljaju iznadprosjecan dojam! P.S. Mala zamjerka Relics labeli ali ocito,nemoguce je kod nekih rariteta naci orginal master!
