Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
More today of the music on this fine (as I now see) album.
Track 5 is an instrumental called “A Day At The Sea”, and is quite agreeable to listen to. It starts off at a running pace, cools down superbly, and slides back to a running pace.
Track 6 on the CD ends Side 1 of the LP, and is a very light, lilting country blues titled “Fishin’ Blues”. This one is very pleasant indeed.
Side 2 of the LP opens with what is Track 7 on the CD, the song not surprisingly selected for the sampler, the extraordinary “Dusty”. This is, quite simply, an utterly brilliant masterpiece, with masterfully syncopated guitar and slightly jazzy flute. It is completely unlike anything else I have ever heard, and never fails to stand what’s left of my hair on end. Its uniqueness, of course, was the cause of my initial problem with the LP; the rest of it could not hold a candle to this one.
Track 8 is one of the two “return to childhood” songs on the LP, and is called “Hello Train”. It is a short and zesty romp, and by no means unattractive.
Next time we’ll finish off with the music on this record.
