I've still no idea what the nonsensical title means and frankly who gives a rat's ass. Part genius - part hard work - Kevin Ayers has had a solo career to envy and his fourth album "Whatevershebringswesing" from 1971 was the beginning of an astonishing run of albums that ran into the later Seventies with Island Records. As brilliant and as prolific as his fellow Harvest Records label mate Roy Harper - he's also as eclectic and infuriating as say Robert Wyatt or even Ivor Cutler. But would we have our heroes any other way... Here are those funny smelling cigarettes...

Released June 2003 - "Whatevershebringswesing" by KEVIN AYERS on EMI 07243-582778-2-1 (Barcode 724358277821) is an 'Expanded CD Remaster' and plays out as follows (51:26 minutes):

1. There Is Loving/Among Us/There Is Loving
2. Margaret
3. Oh My
4. Song From The Bottom Of A Well
5. Whatevershebringswesing [Side 2]
6. Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes
7. Champagne Cowboy Blues
8. Lullaby
Tracks 1 to 8 are his 3rd album "Whatevershebringswesing" by KEVIN AYERS released January 1972 in the UK on Harvest Records SHVL 800 in a textured gatefold sleeve
BONUS TRACKS:
9. Stars - the non-album B-side to "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes" - a UK 7" single released 27 August 1971 on Harvest HAR 5042
10. Don't Sing No More Sad Songs
11. Fake Mexican Tourist Blues - 9 and 10 recorded 1972 - finally released on the UK compilation LP "Odd Ditties" released February 1976 on Harvest Heritage SHSM 2005

Only recently discovered Kevin Ayers, looked at reviews to decide which CD to start with, was not disappointed with this one. Love Kevin's voice and the humour which shines through on this , will hopefully be discovering more of his work in the future.

Listening to this album for the first time is like walking blindfold: you don't know what you're going to bump into next. There isn't enough space on the average album to contain all of Kevin Ayers's ideas and this is no exception. The conventional, the weird, the dark and the beautiful all appear and it seems effortless.

'There Is Loving' makes great use of orchestral musicians, scaling the highest peaks and diving into the deepest troughs. 'Margaret' and 'Lullaby' are gentle and sublime, featuring strong melodies and honeyed textures. 'Oh My' and 'Champagne Cowboy Blues' are more music hall and vaudeville, not to everyone's taste but entirely valid and an essential representation of one side of Ayers's personality. You have to embrace his character in full to appreciate him. 'Song From A Bottom Of A Well' appeases the avant garde fans, a brilliantly-executed slice of the macabre. The title track is a lovingly-crafted gentle blues with a Mike Oldfield guitar solo of pure gold and 'Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes', the most commercial track, is a cool and unforgettable dose of mischief.

Even the bonus tracks shape up, all of them reflecting Ayers's droll side. 'Whatevershebringswesing' is, along with 'Joy Of A Toy', one of Ayers's classic contributions to music. It's a shame most people haven't even heard of him.

Always a favourite amongst Kevin Ayres fans this is a consistent piece of work with a settled band. This album very much highlights the melodic side of Kevin Ayres material. High lights are ‘Song from the bottom of a well’, ‘Stranger in Blue suede shoes’ and ‘There is loving…’
This release comes with 4 bonus tracks including a second earlier mix of ’Stranger’. This album would sit well in anyone’s record collection

By Andy Sweeney TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 13 April 2017
Format: Audio CD
From the very start, it is highly apparent that Whatevershebringswesing is a vastly different album to Kevin Ayers' previous album, Shooting At The Moon. The full orchestral sound that immediately hits you, courtesy of David Bedford, appears to be a million miles away from the experimental psychedelia of his 1970 record, but there is still the distinctive Ayers characteristic when his voice chimes in for the first time. In short, opening track There Is Loving/Among Us is ambitious, beauteous and arresting. Margaret is achingly gorgeous and one of my personal favourites in Ayers' catalogue, whereas Oh My has a gentle New Orleans style swing, complete with a sassy brass and woodwind section; it's immensely likeable. Less easy to digest is the ominous, sinister Song From The Bottom Of A Well which has a Leonard Cohen-like character, but title track Whatevershebringswesing winds the music back down with its laid back demeanour and a rather sensational guitar solo from Mike Oldfield.

Up-tempo rock shuffle Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes has a Lou Reed feel to it, but also features a nifty, intricate piano part to lighten the mood; it's probably one of the most commercial pieces Kevin ever released. Champagne Cowboy Blues is one of the more ordinary songs on the album, and the record finishes with Lullaby, an enchanting instrumental which has an exceptionally lovely flute part. In summary, Whatevershebringswesing is probably the most accessible Kevin Ayers release in his entire catalogue; certainly the most easy to listen to Ayers album I own, anyway. For me, it is the sheer beauty of some of the tracks (There Is Loving/Among Us, Margaret, Lullaby), together with the whimsy, playfulness and artistry throughout that makes listening to the album such a pleasing experience.
