Hammill, Peter - Over (expanded / remastered)

SKU 15-Charisma 1125
Hammill's 6th album and I believe the first one released after the final dissolution of Van der Graaf. It is the closest thing to a 'concept' album I can think of by Peter, charting the decline and final dissolution (of course it is a sad story! it's a Peter Hammill album!) of a love affair.
When I was becoming a Hammill fanatic, this one was impossible to find; the only place it was in print (this is lp days, of course) was Israel, and with a lot of difficulty, I did finally procure myself a copy!
Not his absolute best, but pretty good overall and some of it is great. And, of course, if you are in the middle of a dissolving love affair, it may ring quite true.
Two John Peel show versions of songs from the album and an alternate take of another are the bonus tracks and there's some good, insightful notes from Peter.
