Keeping It Together.
on 29 March 2008
Wow! We didn't expect this one, did we, PF fans! This is one of those wonderfully crafty albums which takes you by surpise rather like the outsider flying up and snatching the winner's cup from the odds-on favourite - where HAS this fine recording been buried for more than three decades? Well, thankfully, it's not some hand-held-cassette-recorder-in-the-crowd pile of mush; it was recorded for The Finnish Broadcasting Company on Saturday 21st August 1971 at the Ruisrock Festival, Turku, Finland; so, and bear in mind the age of the original tape here, IT IS rather an extraordinarily good recording - well, I'd put it alongside any BBC recording from the same era, so with that yardstick as guidance then it ain't half bad, man!
What tracks are on there, I hear you ask, as the information on the Amazon page is rather scant to say the least? Well, here we go, and you're gonna love this:- Introduction (0.45 seconds), Tomorrow Never Knows (6.39 minutes), The Snake (6.37), Uncle Harry's Last Freakout (20.08) and Walk Don't Run at (13.22); 40 something minutes of Fairies bliss with the then line-up of Paul Rudolph on Guitar and Vocals, Duncan Sanderson on Bass, and Russell Hunter on Drums.
And it's just wagging its finger at you in a come-hither fashion, and YOU KNOW you want to travel back there so click that BUY NOW button...go on , what's a tenner when you can enjoy such blissful nostalgia?
