Felt - Ballad of The Band 12" EP, 1986
Felt - Ballad Of The Band 12" EP, 1986
Well, this is Felt. People have all kinds of different opinions on Felt, but I'm not really here to start a Felt discussion. The only reason I'm posting this record is for the two solo piano instrumentals on the B-side, one of which, "Candles In A Church" is impossible to find on CD as far as I know. The truth is, I haven't owned this record in a long, long time and it's absolutely wonderful to have it again. A long time ago someone told me that if I liked these two piano instrumentals, I should check out Eric Satie's work. Well, I checked Satie out and was baffled at the comparison. It wasn't the same thing at all. Go figure. Anyway, anyone who digs Durutti Column ought to like these two instrumentals. To be fair, there is a place for Felt in my life outside of this stuff, but I'm just not in the mood to go into that right now.
This record has a companion post on my blog here.
