Prog Reviewer
3 stars "Bananamour" was the fourth and final Harvest album by ex Soft Machine and Jimi Hendrix Experience alumni Kevin Ayers. Mike Oldfield did not appear on this album (he was recording on Kevin's borrowed tape loop machine at the time demos for what would become Tubular Bells!!) replacement was Steve Hillage. Too bad that more people have not really given these albums a chance as I think they are genius in creativity. Check out the 8 mins allusion to NICO "Decadence" or the strangely witty "Oh! Wot A Dream" a tribute to his musical friend Syd Barrett. Musically Ayers blends emotive vocals and deep lyrics over his expressive music. Really hard to classify his music as it hits so many different genres...folks, rock, prog and psychedelic. Oh yeah and the Banana theme throughout the album.
