Old Rottenhat

I once did suggest "Old Rottenhat" as one of the good Robert Wyatt albums to start buying, but I want to wave it in front of you once more. Now you've listened to "Comic Opera" and hopefully worked your way a bit back in the Wyatt catalog. I see no reason to stop, and please get "Old Rottenhat" from 1985. It may sound modest, but it's beautiful, the lyrics are a bit harsh (that may be the wrong word, but for a Norwegian it sounds pretty cool!), the cover is yellow "and it's Eastertime too"!
