This album was originally recorded in 1973, & today a vinyl copy of this album is worth around 60 Pounds. The band included Peter Perrett, who went on to form The Only Ones & Harry Kakoulli, who became Squeeze's bassist. All tracks were written by Peter Perrett. Features all ten of the demos originally cut for the Legendary Lost Album, & adds three tracks from a later period, 'Predictably Blonde', 'Weekend', & 'Trouble In The World', that feature ex-Pretty Things guitarist Gordon Edwards along with some other session players, but retain the quality of the ten previously circulated demos & maybe a tad more polished in production. Includes the original liner notes but adds additional notes by England's Glory drummer Jon Newey from 1993. Anagram. 1994.

(3 out of 5 stars)
"These songs were demos recorded by Peter Parrett's pre-"Only Ones" band, "England's Glory", and not released until after the Only Ones' success turned Parrett into a cult star and created a market for his earliest recordings. The band also features Harry Kakouli, who later became the bass player for Squeeze. The sound is a blatant rip off of Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, so much so that I'd bet if you played this for a Velvets fan and told him these were newly-discovered lost Velvets recordings, he'd never suspect that it's really a different group altogether. The liner notes go to great lengths to say that in fact, Parrett was more influenced at the time by Dylan than Reed, but listening to this makes that claim hard to believe. Anyway, regardless of how deliberate the Velvets homage is, this is still pretty good music, and anyone who likes both the Only Ones and Lou Reed will probably like this."
