ALAN PRICE Savaloy Dip

Savaloy Dip (1974)
Unreleased O Lucky Man! Follow Up

Ex-Animal Alan Price’s follow up to the successful O Lucky Man! was never released. According to legend (and online ruminations), Savaloy Dip was delivered, but rejected by Price’s US label, Warner Bros. Not, however, before some pre-pressed 8-track tapes made it into the hands of those who didn’t want to see these recordings disappear forever. Rumored to be banished for lack of a hit single, Price took Savaloy Dip back to the studio and scrapped it all, salvaging only one song, “Between Today And Yesterday” – a tune Price would wrap an entire, autobiographical album around, creating the actual follow up to O Lucky Man, the deft Between Today And Yesterday. Sound quality is great, though not perfect. Hear half of the title track, below (split in two, presumably, because of its 8-track source), which stylistically recalls The Kinks’ Muswell Hillbillies, while bringing to mind the early vocal work of Jules Shear.
