70's private press record that somehow got major media attention when it was unearthed, maybe because of the almost fairytale-like story behind the music and its creators. Now that the hype around "Baby" is gone, it's time to discuss and decide: WHAT'S YOUR FAV TRACK???

Voting for "Give Me the Chance" because:

- I like the groove
- the guitar sound is so nasty
- the self-oscillation solo is awesome
- the Emerson boys are consistently keeping in time on this track, which makes it less annoying than, let's say, "Baby" or "Feels Like the Sun"

"Good Time" and "Baby" were my faves when I first heard this, but I'm gonna break out the vinyl and see how I feel now.

Second half is hella underrated, decided to spread the love and vote for Don't Go Lovin' Nobody Else.

Just relistened--the whole thing is great, but "Good Time" is still my fave.

baby is wonderful, i've only listened to the rest maybe once or twice and it didn't strike me as remarkable on its own terms (meaning apart from the album's origin story). though i should give the rest of the album its due

I think one of my record dealers is the guy who discovered this at an antique mall. I still love it. And yeah Baby is one of the greatest songs ever, but the rest of the record is tops!

five years pass...

I got really irritated with "Baby" on the radio today, kept hearing "you're so baby."

I got the impression most people assumed that was the actual lyric

PaulTMA, Tuesday, 10 September 2019 23:01 (one week ago) link

i did.

oh wow, those aren't the words.

also "My Heart" is the best.

billstevejim, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 04:04 (one week ago) link

"you're so baby" makes a weird elliptical kind of sense though.

ban golf (jed_), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 06:20 (one week ago) link

i figured they were singing stuff that didn't make sense.

billstevejim, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 06:37 (one week ago) link

like babies.

ban golf (jed_), Wednesday, 11 September 2019 07:08 (one week ago) link

On Dean Blunt / Inga Copeland version they sang "you're so baby"

PaulTMA, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 13:55 (one week ago) link

J. Sam, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 14:21 (one week ago) link

J. Sam, Wednesday, 11 September 2019 14:22 (one week ago) link

Yeah, what the actual fuck? Song ruined. Cheers lads. It will always be "you're so baby" to me.
