Buying the LPs sampled on Nice Enough to Eat.
Being the UK vinyl version, the last 2 tracks on Side 2 elide contrastingly into each other.
Track 4 is a beautiful acoustic guitar piece, “Backwash”, and is relaxing in the extreme. It would make a perfect lullaby. It is very short, correctly shown on the label as a mere 1.02, but the cover for some reason has it at 3.39. Uniquely, there are no notes on the cover for this one.
“Bakwash” ends with a classic “go to sleep now” cadence, but as mentioned above, there is a splendidly contrasting elision straight into Track 5, “Ain’t ya Coming Home, Babe?”. This is from the very start a crashing, relentless, perfect rocker at full blast, and a wonderful way to end the LP. Mick Abrahams says this about it on the cover:
“Heavy 6-8 vocal line leads into a long 4-4 passage for soprano sax and guitar. For best results when listening to this number dip your head in a large bucket of red paint, dial 999 and run gaily into the street stark naked, shouting death to the evil trouser-worm and all his wicked accomplices. After which you will be taken away to where we all live, which is not really surprising, is it?”
