A Very Charming Album,
This review is from: Sort Of (Audio CD)
I bought Casanblanca Moon after hearing a Worm At Work by Slapp Happy/Henry Cow and I loved the album. Sort Of was unobtainable but years later it was rereleased by R&R and when I first heard it, I was knocked out by the opening track Just A Conversation. The rest of the album might not match Just A Conversation but is still very good. Blue Flower is another stand out track that eventually the Pale Saints did an excellent cover of. And Peter Blebvad's voice blends silkly with Dagmar's on the lovely Little Girls World. This album is as pretty as its cover.
I was always dissapointerd with what happened to Slapp Happy, their joining with Henry Cow ruined them. Henry Cow who were one dreadful band; if only Slapp Happy could have retained the fragile delicate beauty of this album and Casablanca Moon.

Hnery Cow, dreadful? Are you sure you were listening to the right Henry Cow? Perhaps you found someone who CALLED themselves Henry Cow. Henry Cow were wonderful. When Slapp Happy joined they became even more wonderful and what was left at the end of it all (Art Bears) were also........ the 'w' word.
