4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a big fan, you need it, 24 May 2004
This review is from: Maplewood (Audio CD)
If you own most of his stuff you'll have most of these songs in a more polished form, and wonderful as they may be it's always interesting to see how they started out life. This 4track recording shows Harcourt's early versions of Some Bsides and Here Be Monsters tracks such as Apple of my eye and Hanging with the wrong crowd. The lo fi fuzzy recordings really grow on you, to a point where you might prefer the echoey vocals and crackly beat boxing on apple of my eye to it's album counterpart.
The out of time drumming and the occasional split in ed's seductive rasp only add to the character of this pre LP demo giving it a rough edge that's missing on his next two releases, something he's apparently trying to recapture on his next album.
'Attaboy go spin a yarn' is probabily one of his best songs to date and it's a real mystery why it diddn't pop up on HBM. Unless he feels he nailed it without the help of a studio or producer.
While I wouldn't pay too much for it (6 or 7 quid's about right) It's definatley worth getting if you're really into his stuff.
