Excellent remastered and expanded edition of Matching Moles first album exhibiting the creative and improvisational skills of what was unfortunatley a very short lived band.Still there is plenty to enjoy,the elegant and melodic "Caroline" , the sublime lyrics to "Signed Curtain".

Having searched for years for a copy, at last I now own one. All tracks are priceless gems in themselves, but I would happily pay double the price just to hear the wonderful 'Oh! Caroline'. Bob's not got the best of voices, but that just adds to the frail beauty of this tale of a doomed love affair (I know exactly how he felt when recording this). Long may this CD keep going; record companies are missing a trick by not currently listing it.

Tried to get this album way back on cd , but it surfaced recently on iTunes & as I sampled the short snatches of each track I,ve not heard for decades I just tingled up n down the spine like nothing else! From my teens in the 70's , strangely a period that remains clear & sharp in memory as yesterday - Strawbs , Peter Gabriel,s Genisis , Dr feelgood & Public image Ltd ... nights listening to the mighty John Peel on head phones or the "Whistle test" - where a great body of my music collection was heard & remains ...this album hangs in my time-line a gorgeous "singularity" ! "little red record " never drew me as this . Just....love it !
