XTC  All of a Sudden   Options English Settlement  Caroline (Geffen)  1982  CD  Some thought it 'slick." at the time. It sounded to me like updated Zombies; British suburban, breadth of subject matter; tuneful; skilled, emotionally not a little frightening.

Latimore  There's a Red-Neck in a Soul Band   Options Latimore III  Glades  1975  LP  The "red-neck" is probably played by Little Beaver Hale, who is definitely not. Benny Latimore made 3 or 4 fine LPs for Glades/TK in the Seventies, writing, arranging, singing & playing excellent keyboards.
