Charlatans UK - Weirdo 12"
One of my favorite eps by The Charlatans, and simply because they contain two of my favorite tracks by them. Both 'Weirdo' and 'Sproston Green' are amazing tracks, possibly because I love the organ in both (I'm nuts for sixties type organs). The alternate take on 'Weirdo' is a bit lame, perhaps because everything else on this EP is mixed by Flood, and this track wasn't. Not terribly hard to find if you dig a bit, though it might take you a while to find a nice copy. I do suggest you grab one if you see it (as with everything I post, help support the artists!). A great example of earlyish Charlatans in the peak of their long career.
Track 1, Weirdo
Track 2, Theme From 'The Wish'
Track 3, Sproston Green (US Version)
Track 4, Weirdo (Alternate Take)
