Robyn Hitchcock & Heavy Friends - Play Abbey Road (Live) (2009)
After Sgt Peppers, Robyn Hitchcock played Abbey Road (the album) once again for MSF (doctors without frontiers) in the Three Kings Pub on the 1st November 2009 (there was a set the previous night). With him you funnd Graham Coxon (yes the ex-Blur man) on guitar and Mark Bedford (yes the Madness man) on bass. The rehearsals had surely not been very long cos' the playing (and most embarrassingly the singing) is sometimes rough and approximate but after all the pleasure is to hear Robyn Hitchcock pay hommage to this page of musical English history (and mine too since this I listened to this LP more than any other else in my life). And the bonus tracks sung after Abbey Road are finally the best, notably "Old Brown Shoe" (and not "show" as wrongly written on the cover sleeve). The sound capture is not professional of course but of good enough quality to be heard with pleasure (pleasure is the word tonight). Thanks to http://halsprogressiverockblog.blogspot.fr to have posted it 2 years ago. I did a cover sleeve for it cos' of course this has never been on any solid form ever. Enjoy it here or there.
