The first four tracks didnt make it onto either edition of Variéty, and in the case of the first three Im astonished that they didnt: these are great LRM tracks! Got an Egg, however eludes me. (Well, actually, my initial reaction of what the FUCK?? remains mostly unchanged.) (Tracks 5 and 6 already appeared on the English edition of Variéty.) Obviously theyre part of their push to expand their performance repertoire across language barriersWhite Falcon, The Eye, and Got an Egg are in English (mostly), while the delicious wave-riding Eleganto is in Frenchand Ringers English pronunciations good enough to allow me to reflect more on the lyrics than on the performance.
Adieu, Fred, and thanks for all the strangeness ; Catherine, I look forward to what more you have to tell us about the world you see.
