As "Caribou" followed "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" almost before it should have done, this did the same, and the pressure to put out more product resulted in another dip in quality.

Indeed, Olsson has since said it came as a complete shock. Yell Help 2. Dan Dare 3. Island Girl 4. Street Kids 7. Hard Luck Story 8. Feed Me 9. Don't Go Breaking My Heart Bonus Track The album was what was now the formulaic but balanced mix of rocky material and big, punchy ballads. It ends ends with some madcap clavinet and shrieking backing vocals interplay. A petty underwhelming start to the album, to be honest. Again, it just doesn't really ever get anywhere.

This was a shame as it is a vigorous and enjoyable bluesy rocker with some wryly amusing lyrics. It ends with some decidedly "Sympathy For The Devil" "woo-woo" backing vocals. It features some fetching percussion from new percussionist Ray Cooper. Heaven knows what the song is about.

This recording is very clear but lacks dynamic range and sounds compressed. However it should be bourne in mind that this is an old recording and therefore limited by the original recording.

It has a broad sound stage and the channel balance is good but the recording lacks sparkle and never quite comes alive. The drums are not sharp and crisp but soft and muffled. Pianos and keyboards are very good but the backing vocals and rhythm section seem to have mixed down together and lost detail. The vocoder and guitars are sharp and stand out perhaps at the expense of the other instruments.

Reginald Dwight is a regular droog and always up for a bit of ultraviolence. The Vinyl District. Skip to content. The Vinyl District, your daily brick and mortar, indie record store fix.
