A GORGEOUS GALLERY OF GALLANT INVENTIONS
by The City Waites
ANTILLES RECORDS AN 7039 1977 STEREO
The Baffled Knight 2:39 Miri It Is 1:34 The Courteous Carman 2:32 Grim King of the Ghosts or the Lunatick Lover 2:14 The Gallant Seaman's Sufferings 1:51 Time To Pass With Goodly Sport/Taundernaken 2:41 Sir Elgamore or Courage Crowned With Conquest 2:55 When Celia Was Learning on the Spinet to Play 1:16
Editor's note: this is like a b-side compilation of Jethro Tull songs without flute, drugs, and modern groupies. The Olde English lyrics almost make this a foreign record and I can barely understand any of the lyrics. The music is fairly dry and boring but that's to be expected with the lack of instrumentation that we are used to hearing in modern times.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
