The Great Lost Album 1968

Moose on the Loose

[Not to be confused with The Original Moose on the Loose which is a singles compilation.]

The Deram Anthology and recent Beggin compilations include singles and b-sides plus tracks recorded for the unreleased album. Whilst they form comprehensive documents of the band's recording career, both releases miss the golden opportunity to finally present the intended album Moose on the Loose in its full glory.

You can, however, listen to what the album probably would have comprised here >

All tracks are Halsall/Patto compositions except Country Dan and City Lil and [if you believe the Anthology sleeve notes] Gone Is The Sad Man which are Halsall alone.

Interestingly, both the Beggin and The Deram Anthology incorrectly credit Halsall/Patto for Come On Up, which is actually a cover of The Young Rascals song by Felix Cavaliere.

THE MOOSE MEGA MIX

The convemience of individual mp3 tracks has robbed us of the sheer enjoyment of listening to 'albums' as complete, flowing bodies of work.

So, I have sequenced two continuous 'sides' to create what, in my opinion, is one of the greatest late 60s albums never made.

To get the full effect. Set aside two 17-minute sessions to listen to the whole of each 'side' uninterupted
