Great to find this, as it's pretty rare nowadays and we're still waiting for the rumoured "complete works" remastered reissue that was said to be in the can for some time now. Thanks a lot, really!!! I have the album "Forgotten Jewels" of this fantastic group, if anyone intertested Simon House. These Janis Suite - Mandrake Paddle Steamer - Mandrake Paddle Steamer a local band to where I lived Hornchurch and they were excellent live.
I rushed out and bought their single on the strength of that Strange Walking Man. Must admit, I was really disappointed when I got it home. Not that it was bad, just that they were so much better than this.
The good news is, that the B side was a killer Steamand I still have this Take Time To Be Holy - Willie Nash - Hour Of Hope rare gem in my collection!
Thanks for the post, as I never got around to the album after the first disappointment. Simon I would love to hear the forgotten jewels album Lolly Road To Somewhere - Goldfrapp - Seventh Tree. Post a Comment. Mandrake Paddlesteamer made one, now legendary, psychedelic 45 which inevitably interests collectors.
The original release of Strange Walking Man is now very expensive to purchase but aside from the disc's reissue by Bam-Caruso inthe 'A' side, Strange Walking Man has also been heavily compiled. It's unusual for a tempo change towards the end where the vocal parts end and the song culminates with an instrumental passage. The track also features some great understated guitar work, and superb trippy lyrics.
The flip side, Steam, is a pretty decent keyboard-driven instrumental. It was written by Clae Fellbom and Calvin Floyd, two film producers responsible for a minor Swedish film called 'Skottet', which the songs were included in.
Sunlight Glide is a melancholic, slow number, quite unlike this first The flip side, Len, is a fuzzy instrumental. They did never reach the heights Janis Suite - Mandrake Paddle Steamer - Mandrake Paddle Steamer "Strange Walking Man" again though.
I've added "Strange Walking Man" and their sole swedish single where they've shortened their name to Mandrake as bonus cuts. There's also an official website where you can find more information about the band.
