Madeline Bell, Alan Parker c.s. in 1976, for Parker’s Themes International library label … just reissued on (Dutton) Vocalion (CDSML 8473, 2011). The sleeve’s nicked off Millie Jackson‘s It Hurts So Good(Spring 1973), actually. Album’s got the tracks with Bell vocals, and without.

Finally that reissue! Amazingly, this particular Fb group was late to pick up on this news … and neither is this petition dead y… And so after long debate over at WB HQ, it’s Harkit that got the rights to the cd reissue … They did a nice job, complete with 12 page booklet featuring (short) liner notes by one Freek Kinkelaar and all lyrics, including those to the two – top – bonus tracks (from the same 1974-04 session). Sadly, though, dark (red) text on a black background isn’t easy to read. If you’d like to know which role Steve Winwood, Caspar Lawal, Neil Innes, Jim Capaldi, Madeleine Bell & Doris Troy played on this particular Vivian Stanshall record, check:
