One of my favor Kevin's song :

The World Is Full Of Fools (Kevin Coyne/Bob Ward- 1979)

The big bookcase it hides the window
It means I cannot see out
No ragged heads, no ragged minds are
Going to mess me, mess me about
Going to keep it right, don't mention the night
Down by the lakeside, I'm sitting with pamphlets strewn all over me
White squares of paper full of ideas
I throw them all in into the sea
They sail away, sail away
Because the world is full of fools
Ah, the world is full of fools
Yes, the world is full of fools
But it doesn't make them bad people
It's a sunny day, sun like a bauble rolling over the sky
Telephone conversation, someone tells me the weather is
Mighty fine, the sun's divine
Come on outside, enjoy yourself
But I can't, I don't know why
Maybe you can change that for me
I know I'm deep
I seem to be asleep
Hold me now, squeeze me now
You can do it somehow
It's not too late
Tell me, tell me, tell me
The world is full of fools
Yes, the world is full of fools
Oh, the world is full of fools
But it doesn't make me a bad person

That's all! Enjoy !
And don't blame Mandy ! :-)

Cheers Folks!

Thanks so much for sharing this album - it's virtually impossible to find, it seems. I'm rather embarrassed to admit that, though I've been aware of Kevin since he appeared on the Pillows & Prayers compilation back in the early '80s (I was still at school at the time), I've only recently begun to appreciate his work. I'm 46 now. Better late than never! :)

Sorry to post this here... I cannot find any contact info on your blog.

I have been archiving rare recordings for many years and have thousands of shows from some rather obscure artists. If you would ever like to trade please contact me at king.of.the.gypsies (at)
