I discovered Kevin Ayers music via my best friend Gary, who insisted that he was 'it' with respect to the perfect music maker - pop career. I didn't take to his music right away, but I was seduced by his attitude in life - and that eventually lead me to his music.
"Song For Insane Times" from his first solo album "Joy of a Toy"
"Lady Rachel" from "Joy of a Toy"
"Religious Experience" With Syd Barrett, or some think that Syd's on this recording. If not on the recording, at least he was somewhere in the room.
