The album Live, Love, Larf & Loaf was first released in 1987 and is a wonderful and rare collaboration between four experimental world-class master musicians: John French (original drummer with Captain Beefheart's Magic Band); Fred Frith (founder of the art-rock ensemble Henry Cow); Henry Kaiser (innovative experimental guitarist and composer); and Richard Thompson (founding member of Fairport Convention). Richard Thompson once joked that if his presence on an album with John French, Fred Frith and Henry Kaiser was expected to help it appeal to a wider audience, it didn't say much for the state of their careers. Their first album from this unlikely ensemble mixes sophisticated playing with some humorous repertoire and idiosyncratic covers. Live, Love, Larf & Loaf covers a bewildering variety of genres, from folk and R&B to avant-garde and comic opera. The New York Times made it their "Rock Album of the Week" -- "As it draws on music from at least four continents, Live, Love, Larf & Loaf romps past borderlines." Fledg'ling Records proudly presents this newly-remastered, maximum length CD, including 4 previously-unreleased live bonus tracks.
