Finally managed to replace all my old vinyl albums with CDs but listening to this one was a disappointment. Did I imagine that Richie Havens and Randy Crawford sang on the original album? Where have they gone?
I no longer have the original so I can't check it out please help!

As far as I know Richie Havens only sung on 'Ovo' and Randy Crawford never on any PG album.
I wonder if you are thinking of Steve Hackett? He had both of them singing on 'Please Don't Touch'.
Are you disappointed with PG2 because those singers aren't on it, or for other reasons? In my opinion it is a classic, wonderful PG stuff.

Thanks for that Duddy. You are absolutely right it was the Steve Hackett album and I'm looking forward to hearing those tracks again.
2 is my least favourite of PG's albums. Exposure and Animal Magic just don't stand up although I love White Shadow.
What''s ur take on Scratch My Back?

You're most welcome Tica!
This is what I love about this site - even as PG fans we vary in our opinions about his music. I do like SMB very much and find that each time I listen to it I hear/feel something new. I love the interpretations both in terms of arrangements and PG's vocals. Even the much criticised Street Spirit! Listening Wind, Street Spirit and my Body is a Cage are probably favourites but I prefer to listen to the whole thing in one sitting.
Now you! :-]
Btw - ended up re-listening to 'Please Don't Touch' yesterday, so quirky but lovely.

I've got this one on vinyl and I haven't listened to it for a while. My interest in this album has been re-awakened somewhat by a reminder that Robert Fripp produced it, and I'm quite a fan of Fripp's work.
