BOEING DUVEEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL SOUP - JABBERWOCK


BOEING DUVEEN AND THE BEAUTIFUL SOUP - 'Jabberwock'/'Which Dreamed It?' (Parlophone R 5696) May 1968

Hmmn, how could I follow my previous posting of 'I Am The Walrus'...Well, let Dr Sam Hutt take you on a trip with his way out and demented 'Jabberwock'. The song lyrics are based on the creature from Lewis Carroll's 'Alice In Wonderland', so much so, that Dr Hutt gives the tripped out Victorian author a co-credit.

Dr Hutt came to prominence in the 60s by legally prescribing potent LSD to the famous rock stars at his drug addiction surgery in Ladbroke Grove, London.  His association with hip London musicians and acid only meant one thing... A trip to the recording studio.

'Jabberwock' can be found on Rubble 14 - 'The Magic Rocking Horse'

  1. I saw this photo in a Pink Floyd book a few years back and was blown away! The flip is on one of the latter Bam Caruso volumes (title escapes me), pretty wiggy stuff!

  2. I have always preferred the B side, but this is still a really neat choice. His Hank Wangford stuff is well out of our time span, but there are a few gems there as well.
