Colin Hare

March Hare (1971)

This is also solo effort from member of Honeybus. When 'March Hare' appeared (and disappeared) in 1971, nobody would have expected the Honeybus guitarist/singer to come up with such a well-crated collection of original material, his previous attempts being limited to one Honeybus b-side and a couple of songs on their classic 'Story' album. Recorded in the same flurry of sessions that spawned Pete Dello's 'Into Your Ears' and Honeybus' ill-fated reunion album 'Recital', 'March Hare' is a UK troubadour classic which still sounds fresh and innovative today. With help from Honeybus drummer Pete Kircher and Rockpile guitar whizz Billy Bremner, Colin laid down a dozen tracks which run the whole gamut of early 70's pop, rock, folk and country influences. Highlights are too numerous to mention but the beatific waltz of 'Bloodshot Eyes', the effortlessly commercial pop of 'Alice' and the haunting folk ballad 'Find Me' still send shivers down the spine.

What a great new blog! I love Colin Hare and Ramases. If I had a blog I'd put them up too. Hmmm, maybe I should finally start one...

I cannot wait to listen to this- another gem in your pile of treasures...
I also have to say, as a 'green-horne' user, your Artist Index is extremely well-organized and helpful. Thank-you for making this a pleasurable experience.

This is so great it is ridiculous. Utterly ridiculous!

I figured out that Lizardson is probably Bob Dylan or Elvis Costello using a pseudonym and server in Japan to hide his identity. How else to explain such excellent taste in obscure masterpieces.

I just wish the bit rate was "a little" higher. Say 300 kpbs so the quality would be a touch higher.

Long live Lizardson!
