A must-have for Hitchcock lovers. Be alert to three tracks which are misidentified: 16 is really Freeze, 17 is I'm Only You and 18 is Unsettled.

For my dinero, this live recording and "Element of Light" are the two Hitchcock albums that most successfully integrate the goofy/surreal Hitchcock with the rockin' one. Recommended

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Robyn Hitchcock

By Victoria Segal, Contributor

Robyn Hitchcock first emerged as the singer with The Soft Boys, Cambridge misfits whose against-nature fusion of punk, prog and psychedelia peaked with 1980 masterpiece Underwater Moonlight, an album that would later burrow into the brains of US heroes The Replacements and REM. As a solo artist (or with backing bands The Egyptians and The Venus 3), he continued to explore the clammy absurdities and cosmic mysteries of human existence with a slew of beguiling… more »

Y Robyn Hitchcock Matters

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

I don't know if the Y in Robyn Hitchcock's name was there on his birth certificate, but I can't imagine it spelled "Robin." That Y is the same slightly odd Y that's present in the Byrds, in Syd Barrett and in Bob Dylan - arguably the three biggest historical presences behind his music. He's got an enormous, three-decade-long discography, but the early solo albums that have just come to eMusic include some of the sweetest… more »

The 13 Greatest Ghost Songs of All Time

By Mike McGonigal, Contributor

It's Halloween, which is the best holiday out of all the holidays that don't involve presents. On Halloween, everyone pretends to be afraid of ghosts, which are generally thought to be the spirits of dead people who, for some reason or another, are caught in between worlds. I'm not sure I believe in ghosts. It's probably all the Scooby Doo episodes I watched as a kid; ghosts were never real, but rather just Old Mr. Thompson… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Recorded at the Marquee in London shortly after the release of Fegmania!, the live Gotta Let This Hen Out! is a tense and exciting record, finding the raw energy that usually goes untapped in Robyn Hitchcock’s music. Although the album makes the Egyptians sound more like a rock & roll band than they actually were — they never played with such reckless abandon before or since — the driving performances don’t wreck the melodic and lyrical eccentricities of the songs; instead, the increased vigor gives the music a searing power, obliterating the notion that Hitchcock’s songs are delicate and precious. The set list also accentuates Hitchcock’s strengths, relying on his most accessible and melodic material, whether it’s newer Egyptians material like “Egyptian Cream,” “Sometimes I Wish I Was a Pretty Girl,” and “Acid Bird,” or earlier Soft Boys tracks like “Kingdom of Love,” “Only the Stones Remain,” “The Face of Death,” and “Leppo and the Jooves.” [In 2008 Yep Roc released a new version of Gotta Let This Hen Out! that included the original album re-mastered, bonus cuts and expanded packaging.] – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
