0021 Overture​/​Things Ain't Been Right Recently (Purity)

from by Fast Cakes



Track 0021: OVERTURE/THINGS AIN'T BEEN RIGHT RECENTLY (Hodgson/Charlton) 6:19 (PURITY) (c.April 1973)
Musicians: John Hodgson – piano, Michael Charlton – lead vocals
Recorded: Langley Studios (room 1) mono cassette recorder
In April 1973 Purity taped an “album” we called “Time Passes”, the title track of which lasted about 25 minutes. The song had many sections, with repeated melodies, improvised sections, and several sets of lyrics that Michael used as and when appropriate.
The section included here includes the main themes which I have called “Overture” and a section where Michael used a lyric entitled “Thing's Ain't Been Right Recently”.
Other sections deal with the changing seasons, which are featured in the following two songs.
