Cardiacs / The Sea Nymphs - On The Dry Land
Alph CD 032
This is the never-before released 2nd album by The Sea Nymphs (Tim Smith, Sarah Smith and William D. Drake, all of Cardiacs at the time it was recorded).
Originally recorded Spring, 1991, with some additional recordings done in 2015 and 2016.
“Exactly why this, their second album, has been denied an official release for over two decades has yet to be fully explained, but ... it’s hard to imagine a single [fan] failing to emit squeaks of delight at the prospect of hearing these songs for the first time.
Chuck in the joyous news that Tim Smith has recovered sufficiently from his ongoing health concerns to have put long-awaited finishing touches to these recordings and On The Dry Land suddenly seems extremely important; a gentle return for the great man, perhaps, but a return of sorts nonetheless.
On The Dry Land tells the faithful what they already knew; herein lies big shiny genius. If you’ve never hard the pleasure, this is a magical a place to start as any.”-Prog
