    25 Views Of Worthing lp '72-'73 Canterbury prog

    Hi All - I recently released this LP myself that I thought might be appreciated here - more details below:

    Twenty-Five Views of Worthing LP

    Inspired by the Canterbury sound, Watford band Twenty-Five Views of Worthing were inches away from a record deal with Island in the early ‘70s. Thankfully, through their friendship with Island studio engineer Phill Brown (Talk Talk), their recordings from 1972 and 1973 were preserved in crystal clear audio fidelity.

    The band were active in various guises throughout the ‘70s and also cut a rare independent EP in 1977. This new LP compiles all the band's recordings from 1972 through to 1977, the majority of which have never previously been released in any format.

    Mixing the Canterbury sound with a dash of art-rock, this LP is recommended for fans of Soft Machine, Caravan, Egg and Hatfield & The North.

    Hi, very interested in this, but I don't do LPs. Please consider offering this for download on Bandcamp, if not a physical CD release.

    Jammy,

    I can't find your post/thread of ProgArchives that dates from three or four days ago.

    I'm not sure I did reply to it (I thought I did), but wanted to propose it to the Canterbury team for inclusion in the DB

    No idea what you are on about.

    ^ Don't worry about Trane. He's under the influence of McRib sandwiches.

    ^^^^

    Don't take Larry into account, cos he lost Moe & Curly to Covid

    But he thinks they've eloped with David.

    well you (or someone else) posted this exact same opening post (YT links included) a few days ago somewhere else (can't think of another prog site I prticipate in), cos I've been aware of this band for about a week.

    ===========

    Not to mention that snobbing PA would be commercially suicidal for your endeavour.

    Yes, wouldn't want to leave out that massive addressable market.

    Anyway, I googled and found the post you are referring to: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/fo...asp?TID=124570

    It was posted by someone from the UK. Jammyoldboot is from Canada. So pretty likely different people.

    Do they actually DO anything on PA besides make lists?

    I wasn't trying to pick on PA, just saying I don't buy the idea that any of these sites are make-or-break for a release.

    thanks Sean. A copy/paste indeed

    Hopefully Larry will close his trap and look stupid, instead of opening it and prove it.

    I know you weren't ... I didn't even read it that until a charitablesoul picked up on it.

    Yes, PA is not what it once was. Just like here, many left to post daily on fb.

    There are also great, highly versed and scholarly recensions like the following: http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1159462

    Scrotty, you are simply lacking in imagination, if you persist in hearing an oboe and not a bassoon, and tightly scored, richly melodic music where our friend hears tuneless, random improvisation. His review of "Half Asleep Half Awake" is actually spot-on.

    ^ Aymeric man, my prob was always a lack of imagination.

    That review reminds me of a "discussion" I had with my then-girlfriend's father during the early 1990s, in which his central argument was that if Joyce's Ulysses didn't impress or convince him personally, then why on Earth should he ever consider accepting its status as anything but a token of academic deception?

    It just never lets up. And you can't escape it.

    ^ Ha, ha! Exactly!

    Both ol' Jimbo, the 'Toes and Krims - all of them ace! - should have got into Blast for sure.

    Who exactly jumped ship and went to Facebook?

    Name names.

    What is the best prog group on Facebook?
    From what I see, they all just post album covers and sound clips. Can they even CONVERSE? Are there any actual discussion groups in the sorry future?

    I heard the album and it's really quite good. Pity they chose to only release it on vinyl. Makes no sense to me, notwithstanding the fact that a CD could have accommodated much more material if there was any more in the vaults. Not even a digital download ? The version I heard had to have been taken from the newly released vinyl, yet there were already audible scratches in several places. Again, not wishing to open that old can of worms, but this strategy makes absolutely no sense imho.

    I joined several prog groups on FB last year and they're mostly quite underwhelming. I tried posting a couple of discussion questions and generated a fair amount of pushback along the lines of "what's the point of all this over-analysis? I just like listening to the music."

    Regarding Twenty-Five Views of Worthing, I like the clips from YouTube (the archival footage is an awesome touch) and I'd pitch in with all the folks who'd like to see it on Bandcamp. Because of the size of my house my record player is more of a communal thing and I can't generally listen to vinyl the wife doesn't like. I also mostly listen to music while working. I might pick up the CD release though; I'm OK with that as a compromise, especially if the packaging is more than just a thin cardboard sleeve.
