Updated: ALAN PRICE Savaloy Dip (1974/2016) – The Bootleg & The Official Release

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

UPDATED 2011 POST: Ex-Animal Alan Price’s follow-up to the successful O Lucky Man! was never “officially” released (until now, see below). 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 the rejected Savaloy Dip back to the studio and scrapped it, 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 (HERE). The sound quality here is great, though not perfect. The title track is split in two, presumably, because of its 8-track source, which stylistically recalls The Kinks’ Muswell Hillbillies.
