I love this record. A lot.
I first heard it sometime around 1988, when my old pal Kenneth gave me a cassette with it on one side. I remember listening to it while lying in bed, and drifting in and out of sleep.
I almost slept when Lalena began, and Rod Evans’ voice startled me, sounding as if he was in the room with me.
I accidentally sold my lp, but have recently repurchased it – this time a 1976 re-issue with a cool German hype sticker on it.
If you aren’t familiar with this gem, you should give yourself the pleasure of listening to it whenever you’re ready to.
Actually, this isn’t all mine… I bought it with my old friend Michael Hammel (hej Mich). We had a shared flip about the song 2525.
The lp as a whole is a mixed pleasure… But as it is with nostalgia, I’m unable to judge this record objectively…
Woman … Maybe I will marry you…
