Ayers, Kevin - Odd Ditties Odd Ditties
Pop Used - LP SHSM 2005 Harvest
1976 UK Original. Feint Hint Of Ring Wear, Vinyl Appears Unplayed. “It Is Indeed An Oddity That, For All The Considerable Ambition Of His Albums, This Collection Of Singles And Unreleased Outtakes May Be Ayers' Most Satisfying LP. Why? Perhaps Because When He's Constrained Within The 45 Format, He Taps His Strongest And Most Endearing Qualities: Easygoing, Singalong Melodies, Droll, Nonchalant (Even Non Sequitur) Lyrics, Good-Natured Sotto Voce Vocals, Even Female Backup Harmonies. There's Little Trace Of The Inaccessible, Difficult (Usually Instrumental) Passages That Occupy Much Of The Space On His Early Albums. Spanning 1969 To 1973, This Includes Eight Tracks That Wound Up On Flop Singles, As Well As Six Outtakes From The Albums He Recorded During This Period, Though There Were No Obvious Reasons For Their Exclusion (Too Pop Oriented, Perhaps?). These Are, Indeed, "Odd Ditties": Catchy, With Occasional Caribbean Rhythms And French Lyrics, But Way Too Goofball To Be Taken To Heart By A Mass Audience, At Times Sounding Like A More Together Syd Barrett. Needless To Say, None Of These Nifty Tunes Were Anything Close To Hits. But If They Had Been, The World Would Have Been A Better Place.” – Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide... more details

Ayers, Kevin - Joy Of A Toy Joy Of A Toy
Psych Used - LP SHVL 763 Harvest
1971 UK Harvest 2nd Label With Boxed EMI Logo Housed In A Laminated Gatefold Jacket. Name Wirtten On One Label And Inner Gatefold In Ballpoint Pen. LP Appears Unplyayed. A1/B Stampers. “As The Soft Machine's First Bassist And Original Principal Songwriter, Kevin Ayers Was An Overlooked Force Behind The Group's Groundbreaking Recordings In 1967 And 1968. This, His Solo Debut, Is So Tossed-Off And Nonchalant That One Gets The Impression He Wanted To Take It Easy After Helping Pilot The Manic Innovations Of The Softs. Laissez-Faire Sloth Has Always Been Part Of Ayers' Persona, And This Record's Intermittent Lazy Charm Helped Establish It. That Doesn't Get Around The Fact, However, That This Set Of Early Progressive Rock Does Not Feature Extremely Strong Material. Ayers' Command Of An Assortment Of Instruments Is Impressive, And His Deep Bass Vocals And Playful, Almost Goofy Song-Sketches Are Affecting, But They Don't Really Stick With The Listener. It's No Accident That Some Of The Tracks Recall Early Soft Machine: Robert Wyatt Drums On Most Of The Songs, And "Song For Insane Times" Is Virtually A Bona Fide Soft Machine Performance, Featuring Actual Backing From The Group Itself. A Likable But Slight Album That Is At Its Best When Ayers Is At His Folkiest.” Richie Unterberger, AMG.... more details
