Reviewed by Dougie Adam

This bootleg has been out for three years and has been made available for a limited period by Solid Rock. It gathers together a lot of stuff by Larry's band People! and has the exceeding rare single "Blow In My Ear", released under the pseudonym The Flies, and some of the original mixes from the 1969 Capitol Records version of 'Upon This Rock' which have been unavailable for some time. Three of these original 1969 mixes have not featured on either of the two different CD versions of 'Upon This Rock'. The good news is that in addition to the nice booklet put together at Solid Rock, the sound quality is excellent and a lot of care has been put in to make this an enjoyable listen for anyone interested in Larry's early stuff. The People material is often barmy and Larry's involvement is minimal, the Hies novelty single is an amusing, irritatingly catchy nov­elty piece as is its B-side "Letter From The President". The 'Upon This Rock' songs are definitely the best written, recorded and performed songs on this collection. Anoraks - enjoy! (Non-anoraks - avoid, or buy with care!)
