monkberry moon delight is a bit of a favourite in my household.
listened to Ram on sunday afternoon for the first time in ages. actively enjoyed it, especially uncle albert/admiral halsey, despite that being so excruciatingly paul at his whimsical worst

"Hope of Deliverance" is a charming little tune.

i finally picked up a vinyl copy of Flowers in the Dirt recently - first time i've owned it since unloading the Paul McCartney Collection expanded CD circa, idk, 2004? and i'm having a fantastic sunday night right now because this album is sounding amazing, every single track, whole way through. okay i'm not super stoked that "motor of love" just started but i'm feeling confident that its spacey sugary 80s production will sound a lot better in 2020 than even a few years ago. man, those "ah, ah ah ah" backing things are VERY "i'm not in love," aren't there?

oh WEIRD the vinyl edition did not include "Ou Est Le Soleil?"

maybe I'll buy that then, because that song is easily the worst thing on the album

haha i've always been weirdly fond of it. tho it is kinda stupid. i'm just too used to it as a refreshing palate-cleansing closer after "motor of love." but then in turn, thanks to that deluxe CD, i've also imagined the ideal conclusion as "back on my feet" followed by "loveliest thing."

I adore "Figure of Eight," "We Got Married" (a "No More Lonely Nights" redux that works), and "This One."

and the self-produced "Distraction," with its Clare Fischer arrangement, is pleasantly barmy
Kinda gets almost a Tom Waits kinda sounding growl at points.

spun “ram” on a whim today, this same thought occurred to me during MMD.
i’ll never stop being confounded by people who can’t get down with “uncle albert/admiral halsey” — first part especially. those layered, sighing backing vocals are so intense and beautiful

It’s a lovely song and yet, also part of the Monty Python canon for me

There's a mono Ram knocking around online in various places and stone me if that isn't absolutely fantastic. A proper hard copy costs a fortune.
reveals that there's a nice drop of this
in there somewhere

Mono Ram may be a fold-down?
