Odd Ditties songs Product Information
Odd Ditties album for sale by Kevin Ayers was released on the Toshiba EMI label. Japanese digitally remastered memorial edition reissue of the prog-rock artist's 1976 compilation plus the bonus track 'Star' (single version).15 tracks. 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. Odd Ditties CD music contains a single disc with 15 songs. ...See Full Description

||Get Hip To Kevin Ayers|
Kevin Ayers, with his distinctive dark, bassy voice always provided great originality, using top-notch British musicians such as David Bedford (arranger, orchestrator), Mike Oldfield (guitars, later of "Tubular Bells" fame), and Ollie Halsell (great overlooked lead guitarist), not to mention appearances by Soft Machine alumni. "Soon, soon, soon" integrates string quartet in a rock context that is totally effective. I love the way the English produce records. This CD is a collection of rarities & B-sides, and could serve as a good intro to Ayers. It's a tiny but good overview of his early output. "Puis-je?" is a nice song; I love it when he sings in French. The classic "Stranger In Blue Suede Shoes" is included here, showing Ayers' offbeat humor. "Carribbean Moon" always makes me smile. Ayers sings about the dark side sometimes, but always comes from a perspective of love. His music is full of poetry, wine, lovers, beauty, and humor. Girls will love him, and guys can take notes on how to get in touch with their hearts. A beautiful man who made beautiful music. Get hip to Kevin Ayers.
