Album Info


The first album from Laurie Styvers came out with two different covers: the rather blunt image of Laurie in what appears to be a pub-type restaurant, and the more prettified Warners Bros (WS 1946) one. At one point, I had both versions, and the only musical difference I could discern was at the end of Pigeons. There was a minor alteration in the mix, and - in one short passage - fewer backing vocals. At the time, I didn't realise the importance of being an archivist, and did not burn both versions to CDR. What I think I'm presenting here (but correct me if I'm wrong) is the Warner Brothers version with the Chyrsalis version of Pigeons. The reason behind this was that my Warner Brothers copy was still sealed and therefore seemed the better version to go with, but I thought the fuller mix of Pigeons on Chrysalis was superior.

Anyway, it's a pleasant, whimsical album, with the occasional drug reference ("spend the day with MDA"). Sometimes the poetic lyrics obfuscate the precise meanings of the songs, particularly in some of the character sketches like Leo Loves You and Eat Your Cornflakes. The most famous song here is Beat The Reaper, partly because it's the only Laurie Styvers solo recording to have made the CD era - it was part of an odds-and-ends 70s compilation that came out a few years ago. The album ends with Open Your Window, a rather frisky and flirtatious piece with its exhortation to "chain my ankles to your bed".

Here is the rather winsome and lovely Laurie Styvers - Spilt Milk @ 320 kbps.
