An unfortunately neglected Only Today - Two Nice Girls - Chloe Liked Olivia of '70s progressive rock, the first extended collaboration by John Greaves and Peter Blegvad formerly of Henry Cow and Slapp Happyrespectively is a brilliant amalgam of Slapp Happy 's skewed pop sense, the collective improvisation approach of Henry Cowthe sly wit of the Canterbury prog rock scene, and most fruitfully Carla Bley 's inimitably skewed progressive jazz.
Although Bley 's contributions are purely instrumental and vocal the album was written entirely by Greaves and Blegvadsongs like the rushing, choral "Twenty-Two Proverbs" sound heavily influenced by her early-'70s work with Paul Haines Lisa Herman - Kew. Rhone. Michael Mantler who engineered this album; there is no producer credit. Most of the lead vocals are taken by Lisa Hermanwhose lovely, clear voice delivers Blegvad 's playful, often surreal lyrics filled with anagrams, palindromes, and other verbal games in a tone that suggests a deeper emotional core to songs that might otherwise have been merely clever.
