Had a re listen to this album. Back in the day this was it! This song was one complete side of the album. Unheard of back then. Still does it for me!

I loved this song when it came out, but I had no idea of what a Hurdy Gurdy Man was.


And then I found this.

The keyboard riff on this little ditty is fit for a chariot race, and the screeching guitar adds some emotion, which prevents the intro from sounding too clinical.

If you want to execute a pop-rock song with some prog elements, you can't go wrong with this approach:

Maybe nostalgic reasons why I like this group as they have a kind of late 1970s early 1980's post punk feel (maybe even a nod with their latest album cover to the 1st Slits album).

This is from Bass Race's new album Tender Vittles.
House of Spirits.
Love the sax from about 2 min in. Something of Pink Floyd's "Money" sax in the sound.
Nice album.
