Product Notes

Chocolate Teapot is the third album from Fez wearing, genre jumping Big Al Davies. This time Big Al zips through another 12 self written tunes which range from a couple of blues tunes, the jaunty 'Train Blues' and the relaxed as Leon Redbone 'Money Blues', the skiffle pop of 'She Makes It Sunny', the retro early 60's 'Ten Pound Trousers' and the Britpop of 'Making Love (When You're Not There). Add these to a Bossanova/Rhumba with Cheryl Davies about the Profumo Affair, a British (possibly English) Psychedelic tune about the current UK Government's so called 'Big Society' a Big Al country two-step (Walking In Circles) and even a paean to an old lost girlfriend called 'Julie Scrumpy' (Who's that standing outside the pub, smoking a fag with her sad tattoos). The album is rounded up with an electronic ballad, a second cousin twice removed of 'I'm Not in Love' (I Only Wanted You) and the early Faces style song imploring the world to be here now, with wonky guitar solos to boot (Let Them Sail Away). So here is Big Al's third album (following Feztastic (2007) and The Ploughman's Lunch (2009) which again brings a mix of styles that somehow blend into one with the big fellahs' various one man band combinations. A mix of instruments are used again from guitars, electric and acoustic and mandolin, ukulele, keyboards, harmonicas and even Al's old school recorder. Open the door and have a rummage around the musical jumble sale that is Chocolate Teapot.
