It is always a good day when I discover a new "nugget" from the late 60's. Being a fan of Dave Edmunds for many years it is a bit odd that I never investigated his first band, Love Sculpture. Today while browsing on YouTube I chanced across a tune from their second album Forms and Feelings. In The Land of The Few starts off with what sounds like a clavichord - and within seconds I was hooked. Then a Who-like verse kicks in, to be followed by a chorus that has to be heard. Just phenomenal, almost like a 17th century baroque melody. Also packed in is a jangly middle section and one of Mr. Edmunds white hot guitar solos.
I am verklempt. How did I not know about this song before now?
