On the one hand, a thrilling collaboration between three brilliant, distinctive musicians; on the other, glorious evidence of the singular way in which Robert Wyatt continues to find wonder in the world.
What do a Chic song, a barbershop quartet tune about Joseph Stalin, and a Bengali protest anthem have in common? I mean, besides the fact that they all make great make-out music. That's right, they're all on this reissue of Robert Wyatt's classic, politically charged covers album.
One of the more overlooked albums in an overlooked artist's discography, this reissue features Robert Wyatt in a semi-successful collaboration with his poet wife. Plus: a Sesame Street style children's song about Palestine.
