Slapp Happy / Henry Cow - Desperate Straights vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

“SlappHappy meanwhile was planning its second record for Virgin. One night the trio showed up at the quartet's door and proposed that the two groups make the second Slapp Happy LP together...Henry Cow jumped at the chance and Desperate Straights was the result. It's still a gem to my ears. Great songs, great arrangements, great performances and Dagmar on top of her form... real people in a room together, playing straight to tape. Those were the days...”-Chris Cutler

This was the first co-mingling of Slappy Happy and Henry Cow DNA, and it created a unique art-song monster! This was also the album that introduced the excellent and unique voice of Dagmar to many of us and as Chris says, she is in absolute top, top form here.
