and though the music he released in 1976 was rather boring kevin ayers still was a very lovable and fascinating entity live on stage. on the 19th of august northwestgerman radio bremen recorded an evening with kevin ayers live at the famous postaula in bremen of which at least seven songs were broadcasted some days later. though we can only guess who was with him that evening it is most likely that ollie halsall played guitar, bill livsey probably was on keyboards, charlie mccracken played bass and rob townsend sat in on drums (any information on the flute player is welcome). the last song is a fragment, but it is interesting and sadly nostalgic to hear christian günther again, a linking anchor man for strange and popular music in the late sixties, who later on was the stadium announcer for werder bremen and who died rather untimely in 2001.ja: christian günther: kaum to underestimate. but back to kevin ayers: here is what you are going to hear:
- may i?
- shouting in a bucket blues
- lady rachel
- mister cool (fragment with christian günther)
