Calvert, Robert - Blueprints From The Cellar / At The Queen Elizabeth Hall 2 x CDs (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 03-HST 136
“If you're a fan of Calvert this is a "must". Although "Blueprints" is just a CD of home made "demos", a lot of the tracks are as good as, if not better than the versions that appear on "Test Tube Conceived" and "freq" in particular.
The reason they are better is because of the singing. Calvert’s vocals on some of the tracks on "freq" and "Test Tube Conceived" are flat, whereas on the demos he sounds effective.
Highlights are the brilliant "Work Song" and the atmospheric "Ra Ra Man" and "Marathon Man". Check out the toilet flushing on "Acid Rain" There are also four or five tracks here that are not available anywhere else. The "live" CD is ok. Calvert was a great songwriter with a very effective voice. It's a pity a proper compilation of his songs is not available but this double CD package is as near as you'll get for one purchase and therefore well worth the money.”
