Review by Alucard
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars 'La Petite Bouteille De Linge' was recorded in Paris and released in 1990. The record presents a mixture of compositions that unit songwriting and sophisticated instrumental passages with influences ranging from contemporary classics, Kajun Folk Music, Straight Forward Rock, Jazz and a touch of Monthy Python.

'Solitary' the opener with lyrics by Peter Blegvad ("that whole great majestically startling mentally epic burning model of heaven") a Kurt Weill inspired song featuring Weill-Fashion Piano, distorted guitar and bass clarinet, reminding 'Henry Cow', followed by 'The World Tonight' a more traditional song.

'Deck Of The Moon' an uptempo track, sounding like 'XTC' and featuring F.Ovide on guitar and a nice piano solo by Sophia Domancich.

'Old Antiquity' a 'Kajun' Folk music inspired track with a soprano sax intro,featuring harmonica, guitar, violin, banjo and a great vocal arrangement.

' Rose C'Est La Vie' a beautiful French sung ballad with a string section (overdubbed violin?) and John on piano.

'Almost Perfect Lovers' a Jazzy track featuring piano, the late Jean-François Jenny Clark on double bass, tenor sax and including a longer instrumental improvisation.

'Le Garçon Vert' the scond song with Peter Blegvad lyrics, is arranged for Brass band, starting with a 'Peter Gunn' inspired theme with Italo Western style vocals by John, alternating Free Jazz passages with Canterbury and a Monthy Python touch, my favourite track on the record.

'Let Her Go' a beautiful ballad with a jazzy groove featuring acoustic guitar, a tenor sax and a piano solo.

'Dedans' is a reprise of trck 5 'Rose C'Est La Vie' with a Kajun feeling featuring accodeon, tuba, banjo, harmonica and reminding 'The Band'.

''La Petite Bouteille De Linge" is a great record of John Greaves, who mixes influences of Canterbury, Kajun Music , Kurt Weill, Monthy Python into a very personal record.
