Songs 1973-1978 (2CD)
Double CD with an awe inspiring 34 songs totalling circa 110 minutes, these later tracks find Roger Knott taking on the Lifeblud mantle with various members of The Fixx, Adam and the Ants, and Ducks Deluxe helping out. Seelie Court has edged toward overworld Respectability and packaged this refined rock rarity with an eye toward Randy Newmanesque sophistication. Here Lifeblud reflect backwards and immerse themselves in the Golden Age of Rock , drawing influences from Roy Orbinson, The Everly Brothers, The Beatles, and British Pop Psych, as they steer into a glorious Proggy Pub Rock that eventually morphed into Punk. Beautifully crafted songs, from a singular point in rock history, the musicians here spread outwards from this moment ending up with artists such as Nanci Griffith.
