Fantastic work from this legendary British prog/jazz/rock group that featured Robert Wyatt and Phil Miller – with a full CD of bonus material! Little Red Record was originally one of the only two they ever cut, and it sounds like a mix between Wyatt-era Soft Machine material, and some of the later jazz-oriented stuff that Miller recorded with others on Virgin. Mole's style is a perfect blend of all the disparate elements that were swirling around the London scene at the time – and they carry off their work without falling into the traps of self-indulgence that hurt so many other British groups at the time. Robert Fripp produced, and titles include "Starting In The Middle Of The Day We Can Drink Our Politics Away", "Flora Fidgit", "Smoke Signal", and "Gloria Gloom". Great stuff – and the kind of prog even a punk could be proud to love! Disc Two features tracks from a BBC Radio One "In Concert" session: "Instant Pussy/Lithing And Gracing", "Marchides" and "Part Of The Dance/Brandy As In Benji" – plus 4 previously unreleased 1972 sessions: "Starting In The Middle Of The Day We Can Drink Our Politics Away (Take One)", "Smoke Signal (Take Four)", "Flora Fidget (Take Eight)" and "Mutter". © 1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc.
