Anyone listened to this recently. There's some brilliant playing in the long instrumental section. Underrated in my view (although based on quite a simple rock and roll model).

One of my favourites. In my view it encapsulates RM Mk 1 in 4 minutes.

I have always felt that it is on the wrong "side"of the album though. Maybe not so important now but when vinyl was king we tended to listen to a side of an album as an entity and it suffered a bit by being sandwiched in between The Bogus Man and FYP. Swapping it over with Strictly Confidential would have worked better IMO.

Absolutely a fave tune. In similar fashion to Remake Remodel, it's one of those "let's go around the room and everybody (almost) take some sort of solo".

Grey Lagoons is one of the earliest songs that Bryan Ferry wrote. It was part of the demo that they did in 1971 pre Paul Thompson & Phil Manzanera.
