SIMON FINN “Laughing ‘Till Tomorrow” (1970)

Pass the Distance on the Left Hand Side

The Wiki entry for Simon Finn unintentionally reveals a basic (and irritating) truth about how quality is sometimes determined for older records when it describes Pass the Distance as having “attained legendary status as it was so hard to obtain”, rather than, you know, because it was so good. Many “great” rare records suffer from this disease.

But I really, really like Pass the Distance, and especially the noodly electric guitar Finn’s got going on here, so nevermind.
