Buying the LPs sampled on Nice Enough to Eat.
Continuing Mick Abrahams’ notes on the expanded CD:
“The one concession I do still make though, so as not to appear too unrock’n’roll-like, is when I book into a hotel when we are gigging. I always ask the chambermaid or one of the porters to give me a hand chucking the telly out of the window and whilst I have had some strange looks and replies, there have been one or more occasions when they have got as far as unplugging the telly and asking which window would I like! Now that’s what I call service!!
“Back to the album once more dear friends. I must mention Tracks, like “The Modern Alchemist” a great composition of Jack Lancaster’s (somebody once quipped that they thought Jack sounded like Stan Kenton on acid!) that brought a mixture of a hard hybrid jazz-rock flavour to the album and songs that were never released in the UK such as the strange feel of “Meaney Mornay” don’t know why I wrote it to this day but I think I was writing about some of the odd ball people that I kept meeting in the music business in general and I still quite like it.”
