Description

We recorded Sabre Dance, all six minutes of it.  Dave Edmunds always said that the first BBC version was the best recording”. Top Gear Producer Bernie Andrews

Love Sculpture guitarist Dave Edmunds would later tell Sounds magazine “we did a live session for John Peel’s Top Gear and suddenly we were signed up by EMI, Gordon Mills was managing us and we had a number two hit single.” This record shows that Love Sculpture were much more than a one-hit wonder, showcasing fourteen tracks recorded for the BBC  by Edmunds, bass player John Williams and drummer Bob ‘Congo’ Jones. Included here are the harmony-pop of debut single River To Another Day, a toughened-up version of the Honeybus classic (Do I Figure) In Your Life and a spirited take on Chuck Berry’s Sweet Little Rock & Roller. Love Sculpture’s attempt to repeat a winning formula saw them sprinting through Bizet’s Farandole at their third Top Gear session which also generated a rocking cover of George Harrison’s The Inner Light, inexplicably omitted from either of Love Sculpture’s studio LPs.
