Easy are considered by many fans and critics to be a legendary and
hugely influential group. They are widely acknowledged as the band which
launched the entire British pub-rock scene. A scene which arguably paved
the way for Punk Rock.
The all-American ‘Eggs’ originally arrived in the U.K in 1970. During
their extensive touring, they perfected their signature blend of
laid-back country-rock and straight-ahead, driving rock & roll that
served as the template for the entire pub-rock movement.
Eggs Over Easy had a huge influence on many British bands of the period,
especially Brinsley Schwarz. According to the Brinsley’s Nick Lowe, the
Eggs had over 100 great songs at their fingertips.
Just before they split, Eggs Over Easy recorded their lone album, Good
‘n’ Cheap, in 1972. This album, produced by Link Wray and the Eggs, is
now thought of as a classic.
It is now reissued here with 4 bonus tracks, supplied by the band. ‘111
Avenue C’ and ‘Across From Me’ were both recorded at Olympic Studios in
London in 1971/72. ‘Bar In My Car’ was released as a single in 1974, and
‘Scene Of The Crime’ was recorded when the band reunited briefly in
The accompanying 16 page CD booklet includes extensive liner notes, plus
an additional note by Loudon Wainwright. Also, full lyrics to every
track, rare photographs & reproductions of the original LP sleeve.
