taking a chance on broken bob

What with Donna Summer gone … here’s Bob Chance! Just dig Jonny Trunk on the man’s “It’s Broken” lp (Morrhythm 1980): “it starts off all country and goes bonkers. It’s like a cross between Glen Campbell, Giorgio Moroder and a serial killer. There’s a ten minute disco oddity on there, a visit to Bob’s jungle and a track about a stalker too. Bob made the album and pressed it privately, then hardly sold any. It’s class. I love it. It’s strangely good bad and addictive.” There’s also the “Broken!” 7″ on Emotional Rescue (ERC001), with both the 1973 album version (“Wild, it’s broken” – merely testpressed at the time) and the 1980 single version (“It’s broken” – Torchlight 1980). Hey and dig Bob’s “Jungle talk” too!
