Fellas!

I have just purchased both Shleep & Cuckooland. So far, I have only gotten a chance to listen to the former. I am on my fourth listen. Thank you very much.

Don't shleep on "Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard." This was the record right after "Rock Bottom."

There's some kind of brand-new disc out of a live show from the early 70's that he did...must have this.

Once Robert Wyatt gets a hold of you, forget it.

The only record I have, oddly, is Comicopera, which I rather like.

I've been enjoying this BBC performance by Wyatt, with several members of The Penguin Café Orchestra:

Actually, I like it better indoors, off the freezing streets.

Soft Machine - Matching Mole - Robert Wyatt.

All great. Is there a misstep anywhere? No. I am not aware of it.

Winter evening, a fireplace and music by Robert Wyatt. I am in.

(add drinks, cats, sleet or snow outside, ...)

NC.

Oh freaking a, my man, thanks for reminding me. Gotta get ahold of that. Haven't heard that since, crap, 81 or 82, probably.

So I am listening to some Robert Wyatt on the web.

I'm gonna like all these records? Right? Have to go buy them all, save the one I have?

That's kind of what it sounds like.

All I've got is Rock Bottom, but I love it.

I need to listen to more of his stuff, but I'm comfortable voting NOT CRAP based on that record and the Soft Machine stuff he played on.

Tim, I don't know if you'll like all of it, but you should be able to pick up a copy of Nothing Can Stop Us -- a collection of singles and B-sides from the 70's and 80's -- cheaply. Not only does it have 'Shipbuilding' on it, but also has a rather pleasant, if somewhat improbable cover of Chic's 'At Last I Am Free'.

His version of Ivor Cutler's 'Grass' is brilliant, as is his version of 'Strange Fruit'.

NC for Rock Bottom, although the other records all have their moments.

In particular I love the Muddy Mouse tracks he did with Fred Frith for Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard and only wish they'd had time to finish the album as they intended it to be.

Mid-Eighties has some pretty songs as well, including Gharbzadegi (which sounds to me like Wyatt riffing on 'Love Supreme'). It's a re-release of Old Rottenhat, but with the full compliment of tracks that it was meant to have.
