Here's the money quote from page 229 (discussing how Stiff Records would initially present him): "Perhaps there would be an EP release or I'd be half of a Chuck & Bo style album, with a horrible little git called Eric, who'd stumbled into the office with a single decent song....I set about making sure that would never happen." That left a bad taste in my mouth.
I have that Live Stiffs album. It must have been great to see it. I guess that is how Ian Drury became big in the UK.
Get Happy is also my favorite Elvis C album. In the book, he describes how he obtained a stack of Stax singles ( say that 5 times fast 😀 ) in order to get the groove of that album. Replies:
