In 1984 Mark King decided to branch out and did a solo mini album called “Influences”, the B-side was also from the album.
Here he covers Cream’s “I Feel Free” , a decent cover if a little strange with all those layered vocals and rocky guitar (also played by King). I think Angus “Drummie Zeb” Gaye from Aswad did some drums on this.
The B-side is a jazzy instrumental with a few weird keyboard noises (John Shuttleworth?) and some saxophone by Gary Barnacle. Produced with Jerry Boys (Steeleye Span’s producer) it shows that King had not forgot his jazz origins.
