One of my favourite albums of all time is Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake. It’s the single album from the sixties that heralds both the more Psychedelic of the baggy era (you can hear a teenage John Squires studying Long Agos and Worlds Apart) and the entirety of the “Brit Pop” movement. Seriously, read the review over at allmusic and then go buy the album…
Anyway, that wasn’t actually the point of this post… Anne over at i like is a huge Stanley Unwin fan, and has pulled together loads of tracks from the album through the power of youtube. Anne, thank you. A Stanley Unwin bonanza with a Small Faces undertow. Deep Joy.

In the history of unnecessary live albums foisted on the public it’s rare that the record company actually listens to the band when they ask for it to be withdrawn… This time Sony has – Deep Purple’s Live 1993 is withdrawn after Gillan asks fans not to buy it.

I’ve been fascinated by Eel Pie Island for a while now, ever since learning that it was a breeding ground for the British Invasion bands among many others. Clearly other people are too – hence this post over at MeFi with some vital links… Enjoy.
