The Crabs - Lullabies Lie and The John Peel Sessions 26/04/78
A couple of gems for you to try here. The first is the final track from the classic 'Farewell To The Roxy' album (see album cover scans). In my opinion it is the perfect choice to sing a lullaby to the Roxy and to the album. It starts with a gentle lullaby guitar and then into the classic '1234' and the Crabs are off.
It's difficult to choose a track of 'Farewell to the Roxy' as they are nearly all brilliant, The Open Sores excellent 'Vertigo', The Bears outstanding 'Fun Fun Fun, The Red Lights, my favourite 'never Wanna Leave', If you haven't go this album then go and get it, you will not be disappointed.
The second gem, is the John Peel Session, another version of Lullabies Lie plus three other tracks.
The Crabs never really made it, but for me they were always one of my favourite bands. Tell me what you think?
