POEMSOUNDS - A STRANGE LP

 

POEMSOUNDS - HAV 100  1972 George Harrap & Co ltd LP lyn 3132 UK pressing 

Music by John Lewis  Organ Piano

Nick Harrison Violin Recorders   ( who I believe was the String arranger on the Rolling Stones  Goat Heads Soup 

Stuart Pollack Guitar

Peter Rooke  Percussion 

An LP designed to aid the teaching of Poetry in Middle Schools from the early 70s -  thoroughly odd in places - With strange  freaky folk  passages and  dark undercurrents  . Even in the early 70s I’m guessing this could have made for a fairly disturbing  English lesson .  

Possibly used in detention for particularly troublesome pupils .

Similar perhaps to  The Barrow Poets curious LPs on ARGO  or the Drama Workshop /BBC radiophonic Workshop The seasons LP -  There is a touch of the Wicker Man soundtrack  or Children of the stone / Owl Service  Childrens 70s TV shows .There is a soundclip on the rather fine  toys and techniques Blog site.

Needless to say this is  ridiculously rare !
