Kevin Ayers is an English songwriter and was a founding member of the pioneering psychedelic band Soft Machine in the late 1960s.
His 2007 album ‘The Unfairground’ is performed by himself and the myriad talents of artists like:- Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music), Bill Wells (Bill Wells Trio), Jeff Baron and of course, Frank Reader.
The album – his first in fifteen years – brings new and old talent together for 10 tracks. One of those tracks – ‘Run, Run, Run’ – features Frank on backing vocals.
This is the gatefold digi-pak version which is still readily available, but before you splash your hard earned cash, don’t expect to hear Frank in all his glory as his voice is not the only one providing the harmonies – but he is in there somewhere.
It is a good album and has lead me to another artist I knew nothing of.
Decide for yourself.
