Buying the LPs sampled on Nice Enough to Eat.
Continuing Mick Abrahams’ notes on the expanded CD:
“”Sing me a Song That I Know” was a strange song inasmuch that we never performed it onstage live ever, but we did mime to it for an ITV pilot comedy show hosted by Bill Oddie and I think even possibly Graham Garden from the Goodies was there too. I seem to remember Bill as past [sic] of his banter remarking what a totally silly name Blodwyn Pig was, and although I didn’t get to meet him personally I can categorically state that I agreed with him then and now! Nothing ever came of the show that I heard about but I’d love to see clips of it if anyone in the bowels of the great archive section of ITV thrown-away pilot shows has it!
“Back to the sessions again, we started on the now legendary Blod number “See My Way” and it was a solid two days work to get it just how we felt it should be with all the odd changes of tempo and feel, i.e. the section which sounds distinctly like Ravel’s Bolero (which gave me a chance to make some daft comment in the original liner notes) and I think we were all quite pleased with the end result. Even though I’ve done a remake of that number and a couple of other bands have done covers of it, there is still a distinctive and undeniable rough energy (or perhaps it was youth, drugs and alcohol that helped!) that some how still stands up today. That song didn’t go on the UK version of “Ahead Rings Out” but instead the powers that be decided in their wisdom to put it on the USA version and left it until we recorded the second album “Getting to This”.”
