The Man in the Bowler Hat. Extravaganza.
Produced by George Martin, The Man in the Bowler Hat continues Stackridge's brand of satiric rock marbled with elements of folk and to some extent, even country. The lyrics are just as witty as in their first two releases, and the poetry glistens with a jovial Englishness that became the band's most identifiable trademark. With Martin's help, though, the album became one of their better releases, as the music rises to the top before the words do, sounding fresher, livelier, and noticeably sharper than both their debut and 1972's Friendliness
Third album from this strange and quirky combo with the sextet line-up unchanged. Generally regarded as their best by connoisseurs (most likely due to Sir George Martin's production and he played piano on two tracks), the album comes in a gatefold sleeve, but I must say that they could've made so much better with a little better judgment. Interestingly, despite all but two of the tracks on "Pinafore days" also being on "The man in the bowler hat", the sleeve of the album has photos of the "Extravaganza" line up, thus ignoring, among others, James Warren's significant contribution. In all, those who enjoy the "Rubber soul" era Beatles will find much to their liking here.
