Another Sunny Day - London Weekend

I didn't realise how scarce this record was until I saw it on e-bay a couple of weeks ago changing hands for about fifty four quid. Originally released on the legendary Sarah Records (SARAH 613) in 1993 after a string of classic singles such as "I'm In Love With A Girl Who Doesn't Know I Exist", You Should All Be Murdered" and "What Happened". The band basically consisted of one Harvey Williams who seemed to do just about everything although on this album he did enlist the help of a few others including Bob Wratten and Michael Hiscock from The Field Mice. The long and short of it is that "London Weekend" is a record everyone should own, if only as audio files. I know it's always nice to have an original copy but with so few copies around and then at highly inflated prices this will just have to do.
