Toujours La Voyage
on 8 April 2009
Always a voyage of discovery Kevin Ayers music on his second studio Album for Island (Now re-released on Harvest) is packed full of trouser snake like wit. And the charm that fans will know and love.
This today sound like a the most commercial album in the Kevin Ayers catalogue for me a weak album if there is such a thing with Kevin Ayers the highlight of the album is the eight minute tour de force `Tumours La Voyage'. Observations is a cracking and rocky opener, while `Guru Banana' showcases Kevin Banana fixation off to its best. The closing song `Farewell Again' fore tells the unhappiness with Island records and his move away from the UK to live in sunnier climbs.
Bonus material is a generous 25 minutes of 'In Concert ' show from the BBC archives recorded in 1975. Great stuff even for a weak album.
