Subject: Those Later Albums
Syd speaks in defence of those later albums :
OK, I've already mentioned Condition Blue, so what about Love Bus ?
When I first heard WFTLB I was disappointed with it, but it has grown
on me considerably with repeated listenings. Yes there ARE some cracking
good songs, and Pat's lyricism shines through as well as ever :
"I would let the handrail go if I thought anything would break my fall"
( Whadaya ). The other night I bumped into an ex-girlfriend of mine and
you could have knocked me down with a Black Eg discography. I know exactly
what Pat means.
WFTLB IS a good album in its own right. O.K., it doesn't sound like the
OLD Pat Fish stuff, but don't let that prejudice you. Give it a few more
listens before the next verbal demolition session.
I have recently introduced a couple of friends to some JBC albums,
and when I go round their house they always seem to be playing the
Jazz Butcher. You may be surprised to learn that they rate Love Bus quite
highly. They're not old farts either ( well, they're both under 30 anyway ).
I too have heard comments along the lines of "The Jazz Butcher, are they
still going ?" The irony is that the fans of `86 have grown up and might
appreciate the later stuff more than some of the new fans if only they had
access to it.
