|I think Falling Up is Kevin Ayers best work, very versatile and his voice is at its strong and croaky best. I like his take on Flying Start which is very much in the spirit of the Oldfield version but it is more organic, and less well produced but very much in Kevin Ayers clever and chilled style. Not a disappointment to me as its very Kevin Ayers. If I only had one KA album it would be this, although I'd slash my wrists if I had to lose Stranger in Blue Suede Shoes as this is just tops!|
Btw, Falling Up was released by a spanish record label, with the collaboration of several great spanish musicians (Javier Paxariño, El Reverendo...) It's the only vinyl record from Kevin Ayers I have, as I found it really cheap on a second hand record store. Flying Start here is just a 'cover version', but in my opinion a very good one.
Again, about Flying Start, I've heard that the story is about when Mike went to Kevin's house, he knocked on the door several times but Kevin was so drunken that Mike had to wait a lot of time until Kevin came and opened the door...
Knock on the door / but the memory is poor / if there's somebody in , now answer me...
It makes sense, doesn't it? ;-)
