Recorded in 1977 for Virgin, but never released at the time, this sat without anyone even being aware of it, until it was released some 20 years later!

“Twenty years late, Out is the 'new' album from Canterbury scene maestro Anthony Moore. Recorded in 1977, Out proves to be a stunning showcase of musical textures, riffs and lyrical wonderment complete with guest appearances from Andy Summers' strumming his stuff in a pre - Police kind of way, Kevin Ayres doing what a Canterbury legend does best and a reunion with fellow Slapp Happy / Henry Cow guru Peter Blegvad. This is the album that Canterbury scene / Henry Cow fans have been waiting for. Out is finally OUT!!!”

“I think this is a fantastic album...I'd say it sounds exactly like what would happen if Brian Eno and Syd Barrett produced a Warren Zevon album, or if Joe Walsh had Pink Floyd backing him: a beautiful blend of folksy simplicity with incredibly tasteful and brilliant production, moving vocals, intelligent lyrics. It's right up there with "Another Green World" in my book, and that's saying a whole heapum lot. This album will definitely appeal to fans of early Roxy Music, Bowie, or rock musicals like Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rocky Horror, and Velvet Goldmine. An essential document of the times.”-Tim Hall

“On Moore's first post-Slapp Happy venture, he is joined by an impressive collection of sidemen, including Kevin Ayers, Andy Summers (who would shortly be picked up by the Police), and former bandmate Peter Blegvad. Filled to the brim with sunny tunes, string arrangements applied with a light hand, and Moore's rough around the edges vocals, Out is always pleasing, if a bit slight in comparison with his Slapp Happy material. His version of the old Perry Como (!) standard "Catch a Falling Star" is an unexpected delight.”-AllMusic
