A Foggy Day in London Town
Studio Test pressing:
(one sided acetate)
A Blockhead's solo project. You can call it 'Saxophone Heaven' if you like. In the background saxophones floating around, Davey dressed up formally with the sunglasses on. Really charming isn't it?
The back cover shows a galaxy with stars named by the band members.
The label is printed over a Blockhead logo, everything is nicely balanced.
On the A side Davey tried to set up something like a hymn for saxophon players, to be honest, I don't like the A side so much. My favourite is 'A foggy day in London town', an example for the skills of Davey. The sound foggy, mighty and rebellious.
The studio test pressing acetate brings an echoey version of 'Saxophone Man' unfortunately never released.
I like this version a little more than the official release.
