4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Debut, 8 Sept. 2004
This review is from: Neverneverland (Audio CD)
The first album from the Pink Fairies was a curious beast. Released in 1971, it has not aged as well as some of the other albums of the period with some tedious space jamming that should have been left on the stages of the free festivals that the Faires were to play at during this period. When your audience is suffering from too many illegal substances, anything sounds good. However, so not let this put you off. The Fairies were quite capable of rocking out. Their first single, Do It (included here on CD for the first time in it's edited form remains a manifesto for the revolution that never quite got off the ground, a gutsy affirmation that the Pink Fairies were never to eclipse. Also included is its turbulent B-side, the similarly barnstorming The Snake who's opening guitar salvo is one of the rawist ever put to vinyl. Great stuff. Say You Love Me and Teenage Rebel continue the band's rockiest tendencies, but they did have a softer side, as shown with the song Heavenly Man. The free festival crows pleaser Uncle Harry's Last Freak-Out is represented here twice in both its 11-minute LP form and among the bonus tracks, the 12-minute instrumental prototype that was one of the band's first studio attempts at the piece. Needless to say, both are as relentless as the title insists and to some ears may be a bit over the top. Not all of the songs were to my taste but this is a fairly good debut album and for anyone interested in this period of music, this is a must.
