Brand X Moroccan Roll

Brand X  Moroccan Roll
(1977) Passport label.  Reissue purchased used in 1986 Rhino Records Westwood. By the title alone you can see the band is still having a bit of fun making records.  On this album the line up is: John Goodsall, Percy Jones, Robin Lumley, Philip Collins, and Morris Pert. Released in 1977 the back album cover has photos of the band and I just have one word to say:  HAIR!!!  Long, fuzzy, bearded, stringy, and out to here.

From the liner notes:

The sanskrit lyrics on Sun In The Night mean: “Sun in the night, Everyone is together, Ascending into the heavens, Life is forever.”

Why Should I Lend You Mine…was recorded “live” in the studio–there are no overdubs.

Morris Pert: Percussion and a vast number of bits and things that he hit while the tape was running including: the Q.E.2, Idi Amin, and undiscovered parts of Scotland.

Recorded in Panavision at TRIDENT STUDIOS, London December 1976/January 1977 and mixed at MORGAN STUDIOS, London, February 1977 where the curtains are drawn, but the rest of the furniture is real.

I really do enjoy listening to these albums.  They are full of sounds; different timing, up and down and all over the place. Definitely not music to fall asleep to.
