Soft Boys - A Can Of Bees A Can Of Bees
Pop Used - LP CLAW 1001 Two Crabs
1979 UK Original. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “The Soft Boys, Like So Many Other Underground Miscreants In The '70s, Spent Their Formative Years (Unbeknownst To Them) Generating Enough Critical Capital To Earn Much Sought-After Biographical Adjectives Like “Influential” And “Underrated.” The Robyn Hitchcock-Led, Cambridge, England-Born, Pseudo-Psych Rock Outfit's Shared Love For All Things Byrds, Beatles, Dylan, And Syd Barrett Was Both Venerated And Blown To Smithereens On Their 1979 Debut Long-Player, A Can Of Bees.
