Biff Rose is well known as a wordsmith, satirist and vivid prankster.
A "flower-power" Tom Lehrer exploding across rollicking canvases of
song best illustrated on his 1968 album The Thorn In Mrs. Rose's Side
and 1969's Children Of Light. What is far less well known is that Biff
Rose also had a serious side. Divorced and cast adrift his self-titled 1970 album is solemn, heartfelt and an undiscovered gem in his catalogue. Grand orchestrations swirl around lyrics awash with loss and contemplation as they ride above Biff's dexterous tickling of the ivories. 14 tracks remastered and on CD for the first time.
