Buying the LPs sampled on Nice Enough to Eat.
The final anomaly on the Canadian vinyl is Track 2 on Side 2, where instead of “Leave It With Me”, we get “Summer Day”. This was the “B” side of the single “Walk on the Water” [see above].
This is a good Pig song, but not as good as “Walk on the Water”. This is how Mick Abrahams describes it:
“Andy came up with this rift [sic] at a session one day. I added the words, and a little arrangement. The somewhat unorthodox ending was added by Ron, who now sincerely believes he’s going to get the sneezing royalties. (What?!”)” [There is indeed a sneeze at the end of the song, curiously comparable with the sole vocals “Leave it with me” at the end of that instrumental.]
Mick Abrahams’ notes on the Canadian LP are dated August 1969, as opposed to April 1969 on the UK version.
I have 2 CD versions of this album. One is a straight clone of the UK vinyl, with no frills of any kind at all, but well worth keeping, as it is the only way of getting the wonderful “Backwash”/”Ain’t Ya Coming Home, Babe?” elision on CD. To the other CD I shall return, deo volente, ceteris paribus, next time.
