Thanks Sue. The Bragg track is from 'Rubaiyat', a 40th anniversary tribute Elektra records made for itself back in 1990. The concept was contemporary artists covering past Elektra luminaries. Results vary wildly (Faster Pussycat covering 'You're so Vain'? Yikes!). That track, Pixies doing 'Born in Chicago' & John Zorn doing 'TV Eye' are probably the only things saving this pile of monkey crap from BB gun practice.

The cover, BTW is from a book of the same title. Nudeism is explained as a desire to live life the way nature intended. Of course we need this illustrated to us with dozens of pictures of ugly exhibitionists (ever wonder what your parents looked like naked? I didn't think so). I was really happy to see these people put towels over their kitchen chairs, though.

Odd, isn't it, how the people who espouse nudism most vigorously are the sort of people who simply should never be seen in public without clothes on. Nice mix.

I just obtained some whacky video of nudist documentary films from the late fifies/early sixties. Strange movies and kitsch culture of the past are another odd obsession of mine. As for this mix, great stuff, excellent choice of covers.

as a confirmed covers maniac, would it be heresy to state that i prefer the originals (which are brilliantly selected) to the versions by these heavy-handed lugs. which is not to say i'm not eager to hear the tracks by stiv, eddie, the undertones, radio b. and more. and are we to assume the cover pic is NOT mr. and ms. lo-fi dining alfresco?
