Peter Perrett - The 1972 tape (1972)



Another re-up on M. Once again, I re-up according to requests since there are more than 700 records that have been deleted. You decide which ones will be re-up in leaving a comment. Catch this one here.

In the summer of 1972, Peter Perrett, aged 20, records some songs with his friends John Newey and Harry Kalouli to show to a putative new member aimed for guitarist in a new band (then called Peter & the Pets or England's Glory) how were his songs. Newey was beating time on a biscuit box and Harry Kakoulli slapping his bass (this comes from the Nina Antonia Perrett's biography). The result is surprising since here Peter Perrett is closer to his Only Ones period than to the short England's Glory one. He doesn't imitate so much Lou Reed than in their demo-LP of the further year. The most thrilling for any Only Ones fan, is to hear "Inbetweens" 6 years before it will appear on record. Some weeks later, there will be another "session", allowing to discover other new songs from this phoenix that honestly, has few chances in 1973 to be recognized as a major composer given the music featuring in the charts. So here is this testimony, released under the name of England's Glory in 2005 in a compilation called "The First And Last". I did the cover sleeve from 2 pictures I found on the net. I think it's rather appropriate.

Thank you so much. Just wanted to let you know I noticed the songs are identified in reverse - i.e., 1 - Good Time is actually 9 - So Divine, 04 - Inbetweens is actually 06 - First Time I Saw you, etc.

Would it be possible to re-up some of the dead 'Family' links? All from BBC Sessions Pt 3 are dead.

Thanks
