A second collection of 'extras' from the Pets and there are some real gems. Not quite up to the standard of Alternative, but nonetheless an excellent collection of songs that many other groups would kill for.

The Magic Shoemaker (Live Recording)The guitar riffs on "I Didn't Get Where I Am Today" were written by Dave Lambert, the lead guitarist (and a vocalist and songwriter) with Strawbs, who are still touring the UK, Europe, Canada, US these days as both an electric band and as Acoustic Strawbs.

Dave had a band called Fire before joining Strawbs in the early 1970s and Fire released a classic single called "Father's Name is Dad", which is where the riffs come from. (A copy of the original single sold for £515 on eBay last week incidentally!) Dave Lambert was properly credited on The Pet Shop Boys' release, to his delight.

Anyone who wants to hear the original song with the riffs might be interested to know that the original members of Fire reformed to play in 2007 and released a live album called "The Magic Shoemaker Live" which has a terrific live version of "Father's Name is Dad" on it (available here on Amazon). [...]/davelambert07 [...] and comprehensive details of Dave's shows with Strawbs plus more information is at [...] - also a nice Youtube clip of the song being played live in 2007 is at this link:
