Since I'm not technically able to play tracks to musica these days, I ran Fred's version of "No Good To Cry," along with a few other cherce items from the "Agnes English" LP, up to my own Probe site, at http://www.philxmilstein.com/probe . A real pleasant surprise in my travels through the album today was discovering "AcHenall Riot," a pop-psych gem that, along with "Judy In Disguise," gave meaning to the album's additional credit line, "Sitar Furnished By Kenny Gill Music, Baton Rouge LA." On a semi-related matter, I have upgraded both sides of the Basil Swift & The Seegrams 45. They'd previously been taken from a cassette dub, but I recently acquired a copy of the 45, and the new versions are from that. They're available under the same links as the earlier ones, at "Session 5." Dig, --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
