Brian Short - Anything for a Laugh (Excellent 1971 UK SSW LP - Dutch issue on the Bovema label)

Really great album of Brian Short, ex Black Cat Bones' singer.
Short's got a way of making songs that are at once chilled and somewhat gloomy, yet quite epic. 
Sometimes the sound is loungy, sometimes it's baroque-folky, and a very cool sax leads the way out on "Blue Tuesday".  Meanwhile it's just straight up guitar 'n' piano classic rock on "Don't You Need Me Anymore".  And it all just somehow reminds of Joe Cocker's version of "A Little Help From My Friends". 
It's a great obscure little album !

Many tracks listenable on YouTube :


An excellent record in a great condition for a little price ! 
Don't miss this one ! You won't be disappointed !
