The album was produced by George Martin, famous for his work with the Beatles, in a collaboration that came about after Cutler had appeared in the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour film earlier that year. The album's title and cover allude to the board game of the same name
LUDO the only album by the Ivor Cutler Trio, recorded by Sir George Martin in 1967, is one of the best Ivor Cutler releases and has a unique flavour with fuller arrangements of his songs than just harmonium/ piano and voice (it's still fairly sparse). Flim, Flam, Flum and I Had a Little Boat are achingly beautiful.
Cutler studied painting and sculpture in London in the 1950s, but took to songwriting and poetry in the latter part of the decade, largely because they seemed more likely to help support his growing family. Cutler began writing and recording songs and poems and quickly landed a recurring gig on the BBC Home Service, making 38 appearances on the weekly Monday Night at Home show between 1959 and 1963, most often backed by his trademark droning harmonium. His performances on this album were so striking that Wyatt's label, Virgin Records, signed Cutler to a multi-album deal. The results of that partnership, Dandruff (1974), Velvet Donkey (1975), and Jammy Smears (1976), are probably Cutler's best-known albums, and his association with Virgin, then the definitive British progressive/art rock label, brought him an entirely new, younger, and more rock-identified audience.
