the best pre-Christmas Christmas album
It’s a classic alright. Particularly hanky panky nahow
Not a single duff track on that fucker. 10/10
Great album. A genuine masterpiece. Saw him perform it in its entirety at the QE Hall back in the day and it was a wonderful experience.
title track is an all timer
Should have saved the thread a few weeks for the 100th anniversary
One of my faves ever
Saw him perform this in full at Primavera 2011. Later that day watched Barca beat Man Utd in the Champions League final.
Absolute 10/10 day.
Heard one track off this and saved it. Still not listened. Must correct that.
Amazing album. I do skip ‘Macbeth’ though, not because it’s a duff song as such, more because it breaks up the mood the first 4 songs have established.
Been going through a big Cale phase recently, he really was on fire until the early 80’s.
Bump 'cos I’ve just stuck this on. Will do my selfie later.
MERRY PRE-ADVENT EVERYONE.
Heard this for the very first time on Monday. All I can say is Fucking Hell, what an album. Nearly cried at parts of it.
Perfect time to hear it for the first time!
Glad you like it
Listened to this and Songs For Drella for the first time around the same time. The title track of this album and ‘Smalltown’ from Songs For Drella both nearly finished me off completely.
you’re a ghost la la la la la la la la la
I live quite near Chipping Sodbury, you know.
