Lazy –Let Me Down Easy


Lazy –Let Me Down Easy/ Good Times Coming –Libra LS-16 (1977 DK)

I picked this one up a couple of weeks ago in a bargain bin on the strength of the cover and Danish origins and it is only now that I got round to actually spinning it. Don’t know anything about this lot, perhaps their only release? To me Let Me Down Easy is like the (US) Marbles attempting 2-4-6-8 Motorway with a healthy dollop of Carpenters. The vocalist has a classic pop voice, really endearing. The B side is if anything better; rougher and more sprightly, the outwardly poppy-ness remains also with the bonus of hand claps. Undiscovered Powerpop genius or run-of-the mill Continental Pop fodder? –you decide...

I like this one - both sides. Reminds me a bit of '70s teenybop act Rosetta Stone, not to be confused with the '90s Goth act of same name. But I have no info on this, though.

Yeah when I picked it up I was thinking Rosetta Stone, Child, Dolphin...but for me there is something more going on here...
