140 gram LP -- clear yellow vinyl in clear PVC sleeve (ltd. ed. 500 copies). "This valuable collection of BBC sessions, finds Kevin Ayers at the height of his career, fronting several different line-ups and playing an interesting and rare mix of material, most of which is not found on any of his studio albums. The first session, recorded in February of 1970, features an interesting version of Soft Machine's 'Why Are We Sleeping?' and the campy 'You Say You Like My Hat', backed by all members of Soft Machine, plus Elton Dean and Lol Coxhill on sax. The next two sessions, from May & June 1970, find Ayers backed by his Whole World band, featuring Mike Oldfield, and playing 'We Did It Again', from his days with Soft Machine, along with the whimsical 'Derby Day' and 'Gemini Child'. The final session features only Ayers and Archie Leggett on bass (who would also appear on Ayers' 1973 Bananamour album) playing Ayers' 1970 'Butterfly Dance' single along with the classic pop song 'Falling in Love Again'."
