Side one of the album features Kenneth singing a succession of lusty ballads from the age of Queen Elizabeth I, whilst side 2 features Kenneth singing a succession of slightly less lusty ballads from the age of Elizabeth II. Kenneth’s conjecture (and he does elaborate about it at great length in between tracks) is that the first Elizabethan age was a happy carefree time where all was well with the world whilst the second Elizabethan age is a benighted epoch, where love has become cynical and clinical. Sadly he undermines his case by extolling the blissful virtues of the Tudor period with a succession of vulgar madrigals featuring a cast of bawdy knights who merrily rape and make off with an astonishing number of pure young maidens. But all in good fun according to Kenneth. The hideous corruption of the modern age is (equally bizarrely) illustrated with some choice Lennon and McCartney tracks and the Frank Loesser number Baby It’s Cold Outside. Which does leave me wondering whether Kenneth Connor may have been a prog genius or just a bit barking. I suspect the latter.
