2007 digitally remastered reissue of this 1976 solo album from the Gong leader. In 1975, following his departure from Gong, the highly influential group he had founded, Daevid Allen sought musical solace in the village of Deja on the island of Mallorca. Here he encountered a group of Catalan musicians, Euterpe, with whom Allen began a collaboration. Recorded in Mallorca, this album was released by Virgin Records to great acclaim, being a unique work that was regarded by fans and critics as being equally as good as anything he recorded with Gong, if not better.
The best-realized of their classic albums, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour was also the last of the group's albums for almost a decade to be done under reasonably happy and satisfying circumstances – for the last time with this lineup, they went into the studio with a reasonably full song bag and a lot of ambition and brought both as far as time would allow, across close to four months (interrupted by a tour of the United States right in the middle)….
This concert film captures beloved pianist and musician Dr. John performing a 1995 concert. The setlist includes "Iko Iko," "Gee Baby Ain't I Good To You," "Right Place, Wrong Time," "Goin' Back to New Orleans," "Mess Around," amd "Makin' Whoopee."
Another addition to the Manhattans' bulging cache of mellow sounds. Gerald Alston, Winnie Lovett, Ernest Bivens and Kenny Kelly made a career of recording romance, heartache and make-out tunes. The popular "We Never Danced to a Love Song" fits in well with their other ballads, as does the majestic "It Just Can't Stay this Way" and "Let's Start All Over Again." They hit the charts with the somewhat contrived "I Kinda Miss You," and the title track, the eloquent "It Feels So Good to Be Loved So Bad" is classic - the harmony is tight and they add a little doo wop for good measure.
