Kevin Ayers - Whatevershe-bringswesing
This product is currently sold out.
Melancholic and reflective, Kevin Ayers' third solo effort, Whatevershebringswesing (this time sans 'the Whole World' as a collective), finds the ultimate underachiever languishing in a realm of ballads, free (for the most part) from the façade and pretensions of prog rock that plagued the previous project. Released in January 1972, Whatevershebringswesing was Ayers' most commercially accessible album to date. The opening track, the "There Is Loving" suite, was both apropos and deceptive. The song picks up nicely from the previous album, linked by its Soft Machine/prog rock sound and fronting the lyrics from the single "Butterfly Dance"; however, for the very same reason, this was a deceptive opener for an album that was far removed from the prog subgenre. It is often cited as Ayers' magnum opus.
