5 stars I have been a loyal fan of Arthur's for over thirty year's, and have met him on two occasions, both whilst living in Cardiff. On our first meeting back in 1987, he gladly autographed every single album and cd, that up until then had been released, and thankfully i had my camera with me to record the event.

I now own 49 separate cds that he has released over the year's, including his incredibly rare Legboot cd, which was released in very limited numbers, and only during two concerts.

My original "Lost Ears" album is also a very rare article, being a special promotional copy, without any of the original artwork, but for some reason includes the very scarce poster, an item that came with very few of the original 1976 releases.

Out of all the albums that Arthur has ever released, this 1976 Gull double album, is the final work to be released onto cd.

Much of the music, is similar in style to his final Kingdom Come album "Journey", there is not much of the insane Zoo Dossier to be found here.

One almost feels that the twin album was released just to cash in on his recent success, and seems out of place in the rest of the Kingdom Come releases.

The Lost Ears is not even recognised as a definite Kingdom Come album, much of it's composition is a rehash of various tunes taken from a number of his works, and the fact that it's taken just over forty year's to finally reach the cd format, indicates it's a forgotten piece of work.

Well it's finally available, but be quick, i can see availability being limited, as few music lovers will remember the album ever existed.
