Bragg, Billy - Life's A Riot With Spy Vs Spy Life's A Riot With Spy Vs Spy
Pop Used - LP UTIL 1 Utility
Near Mint 1983 Original. Light Top Left Crease. “It Is Likely That Non-Fans Will Have Encountered The Tracks On Life's A Riot On The Re-Packaged Back To Basics CD (Which Also Included 1984's Brewing Up With Billy Bragg EP). However, It Is Useful To Discuss This Debut In Its Historical Context, For On Release In 1983 Nobody Had Encountered Anyone Like Billy Bragg Before. A Gruff Woody Guthrie For The Post-Punk Generation, Bragg's Heavy Essex Accent Moderated A Singing Voice That Was Anything But Operatic. Yet The Singer's Strident, Passionate Non-Singing Provided The Perfect Conduit For A Suite Of Lyrics That Matched Polemic With Romantic Observation. Another Important Factor In That Equation Was His Technique As A Guitarist — Both Extraordinarily Resourceful And Highly Rhythmic. Bragg's Underrated Musicianship Was Perfect For Songs Such As "A New England," The Album's Cornerstone Lovelorn Track (And Bragg's Calling Card For Many Years To Come). Sometimes, As On "The Milkman Of Human Kindness," The Artist Succumbs To Mawkish Sentimentality, But His Sheer Conviction And Empathy With His Characters (Who Seem To Be Self-Analogous) Wins Through, Particularly On The Affecting "The Man In The Iron Mask." – Alex Ogg, All Music Guide... more details

Bragg, Billy - Don't Try This At Home Don't Try This At Home
Pop New - LP COOK 062 Cooking Vinyl
New, Unplayed 1993 45rpm 2LP UK Original With Custom Inner Sleeves. Custom Hype Sticker On Shrink. Slight Corner Bump, Hence Reduced Price. “After Dipping His Toes In The Notion Of Using Backing Musicians On Talking With The Taxman About Poetry, Billy Bragg Finally Dove In Headfirst With Worker's Playtime, But Don't Try This At Home Was Where Bragg First Began To Sound Completely Comfortable With The Notion Of A Full Band. With Johnny Marr (Who Helped Produce Two Tracks), Peter Buck, Michael Stipe, And Kirsty Maccoll On Hand To Give The Sessions A Taste Of Star Power, Don't Try This At Home Sounds Full But Uncluttered; The Arrangements (Most Complete With -- Gasp! -- Drums) Flesh Out Bragg's Melodies, Giving Them Greater Strength In The Process, And Billy's Craggy Vocals Wrap Around The Melodies With Significantly More Flexibility Than On Previous Recordings. With The Exception Of The Rabble-Rousing "Accident Waiting To Happen" And "North Sea Bubble," And The Witty "Sexuality," Most Of Don't Try This At Home Finds Billy Bragg In A Contemplative Mood; The Political Tunes Are Subtle (And Don't Hector), Such As The Mournful "Rumours Of War," And The Songs About Love Tend To Examine The Less Hopeful Side Of Relationships, Like "Mother Of The Bride" And The Lovely "You Woke Up My Neighborhood." But There's Also An Understated Wit To Many Of The Songs, Especially The Well-Drawn "God's Footballer," And Bragg Approached The Work Of Other Songwriters To Splendid Effect On Fred Neil's "Dolphins And Sid Griffin's "Everywhere." Don't Try This At Home Isn't The Sort Of Album That Announces Itself Loudly, But Slip Into Its Understated Textures And You'll Discover One Of Bragg's Warmest And Most Thoughtful Albums.” - Mark Deming, AMG... more details

Bragg, Billy - Workers Playtime Workers Playtime
Pop Used - LP 60824 Elektra
1988 Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Saw Cut. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “By The Time Billy Bragg Began Recording Workers Playtime In The Fall Of 1987, He'd Gone From A Rabble-Rousing Leftist Songwriter And D.I.Y. One-Man Punk Band To A Bona Fide Pop Star In The U.K., And Had Won A Sizable Cult Following (And A Major-Label Recording Contract) In The United States. In Addition, Bragg Had Begun Expanding The Stark Sound Of His Early Recordings On His 1986 Album Talking With The Taxman About Poetry, And The Sessions For Workers Playtime Found Bragg And Producer Joe Boyd Building Actual Arrangements Around His Tunes As He Struggled To Balance A Broader And More Eclectic Musical Approach With The Small-P Politics That Were His Stock In Trade. This Struggle Is Practically Audible On Workers Playtime, And This Time Out Bragg's Songs About The Ups And Downs Of Relationships Outnumber (And Are More Satisfying Than) His Polemics, And He Seems Torn Between The Comfort Of The Spartan Simplicity Of Numbers Like "The Only One," "Valentine's Day Is Over," And "Must I Paint You A Picture" And The More Expansive Approach Of The Rollicking "Life With The Lions" And The Appropriately Mysterious "She's Got A New Spell." Significantly, Two Of The Album's Most Explicitly Political Numbers, "Rotting On Remand" And "Tender Comrade," Are Also The Least Satisfying Tracks Here, And The Album Reaches Its Finest Moment When Bragg Musically And Lyrically Faces The Contradictions Of This Turning Point In His Career Head On With The Splendid Final Number, "Waiting For The Great Leap Forwards."
