Silent Partner - Hung by a Thread
This album is very Genesis and Stackridge-like with the music-hall type numbers, folky material, silly lyrics, etc. However the last track is a power-blast of fusion that will sweep you away like a jet engine does an unfortunate pigeon. Having said that, it's quite hit and miss with a number of super-annoying songs, just as Stackridge used to do.
A Stackridge imitation, track 4 (or Genesis, either one, makes no difference to me):
I won't include the last, nine-minute long fusion track that blew me away utterly and made this lost album a classic entirely on its own, but pay attention to it, it's a stunner!
Many thanks to my friend for purchasing this record and sharing it with us.
