Buying the albums sampled on “Picnic”.
This is the track listing on the Canadian version of the LP:
going to germany
don’t you ease me in
[Yes, all in lower case, sic.].
And that’s it, just 5 tracks per side, and your eyes do not deceive you.
Read that list again!
Remember, the kind guy had done a CD of this which he had thrown in for the price of the LP, with a sticker on it pointing out that the most well known track on the album is “Round And Round”, which was of course on “Picnic”.
This song is conspicuous by its absence from the Canadian edition! No wonder my supplier repeatedly warned me that the version he was selling was the Canadian one.
Anyway, the first thing I did was to make a new CD, with “Round And Round” from “Picnic” added to the LP tracks, which CD I still have. My guess is that this maybe approximates to the UK version of the record, SHVL 753, though I really do not know as I have never seen a copy of it.
Oddly, however, brilliant though “Round and Round” is, it does not give a clue as to the superlative quality of this first rate record, which is in my top 10 favourite albums, and all because of Liz Hanns.
