Vivian Stanshall: Labio-Dental Fricative / Paper-Round
In the UK this single was credited to the Sean Head Showband; in the USA it's just credited to Viv Stanshall. It's an utterly charming pair of tunes by Viv, who was on the rebound from the recently-defunct Bonzo Dog Band, but this eclectic group of collaborators (Viv, Eric Clapton, bassist Dennis Cowan, and percussionist Remi "Mr. Magic" Kabaka) never produced any other material. The A-side of this 1970 single survives on CD in many Bonzo collections, but "Paper-Round" has never been officially reissued.
