Since it has been requested that I re-up the other Patto's stuff, I do it with pleasure. Here's the first.
Another Patto compilation of rarities (at least I think so): a sample of BBC sessions recorded by the band between 1970 and 1973. Unfortunately they're far from being exhaustive and moreover far from being prime sound quality but it's worth having it I think. And the last one (from 12/02/1973) is complete and good sound quality. Listening to this today shows how this band was fascinating, exciting but also boring in his way of complicating songs that would have needed more simplicity (the Ollie Halsall fault I suppose). No matter, the cocktail is sapid and interesting enough to make me get back again and again to them. Surely because with this band you never know where the song will go one second later and that you're still surprised each time. They couldn't have been massively successful but they could have a loyal following and go on some more years. The next attempt to break, with Boxer, was no more successful commercially, and much less satisfying musically. So enjoy this sonor testimony here. The cover sleeve is from a couple of contempory German artists called Abetz & Dresher. Their imagery is totally relevant with Patto's universe I think. More on them here.
