The tracks were originally demo recordings but they were judged good enough to release by label head Alan McGee.
It’s not Felt, but it’s good – that is lost when they pull half an album out from under you. And it also begs the question: what is the purpose of this so-called reissue ? Imagine Apple decides to reissue Abbey Road on vinyl, but further decides to drop that mishmash of tracks all glommed together on Side 2 and replace them with, say ‘The Ballad of John and Yoko’ and ‘Old Brown Shoe’. That’s what’s happened here. As for the tracks substituted for Side 2 of the original album, ‘Tuesdays Secret’ wouldn’t be released for another six months (on the Space Blues EP) and ‘Jewels Are Set In Crowns’, a bouncy little ditty appearing for the first and only time in its exclusive Felt rendition (it would be re-recorded five years later as a glammy bubblegum toetapper on. a Denim B-side, also included on the 1997 catch-all album of Denim B-sides and rarities Novelty Rock in 1997).
All songs written by Lawrence, except where noted. Forever Breathes the Lonely Word. Train Above the City. Me and a Monkey on the Moon.
Felt’s seventh album lasted six songs and 26 minutes, and its opening words (from ‘Declaration’) were I will be the first person in history to die of boredom. Nine minutes were allotted to ‘Riding On The Equator’, while Lawrence ceded guitar duties to session player Tony Willis on the sombre ‘She Lives By The Castle’ and ‘Stained-Glass Windows In The Sky’ – the former’s vocal melody the first indication that Lawrence’s new hero to emulate was mid-sixties Dylan. But following side one’s eight songs/20 minutes, Lawrence gave side two to Duffy, for two instrumentals (10-track symmetry fans rejoice!).
