Ant-No Road Goes Your Way

Ant-Banana Pie/ No Road Goes Your Way –Pye 7N45332 (1974 UK)
Somehow following in his dad’s footsteps, but not quite...Bygraves Junior also showed up on Pye, but musically Anthony was more tuned in to the times and didn’t require hands in quite the same manner.... His 2nd release (as by Anthony Bygraves) -Painted Lady was a fine Glam single which found its way onto Glitter From The Litter Bin, but this release was his first venture on the label. The A side Banana Pie is pure Trad Dixieland Big Band Rock ‘N’ Roll, but the B side really has something special going for it. It’s got some cool and loud Wah Wah interjections, effected camp lead vocals and a very bizarre orchestrated arrangement. The track doesn’t really know what it wants to be, but somehow would have fitted on the soundtrack of Phantom of The Paradise, if Beef had in fact been Roast Beef but slightly on the pink and underdone side...
