4 stars Born Again Cretin was on the C81 cassette given away with NME, and introduced a new post-punk audience t the strange world of Robert Wyatt, who had been coaxed out of retirement by Green from Scritti Politti. A series of highly eclectic 7"s followed on the ubercool Rough Trade label, culminating in a suprise Top 30 hit with Shipbuilding. At Last I am Free was an inspired choice of song, originally a Chic album track (most recently sung by Elizabeth Frazer). Strange Fruit is also amazing, although no-one will ever match the contempt Billee Holiday brought to the original version. But then there a few filler tracks which let the project down a little. Still this album relaunched Wyatt very effectively to a new generation.
