It has been said that legendary Beatles guitarist George Harrison, despite not being into the idea when Apple Records was first mooted, became so enamored of being a record company executive that he and Ringo wanted to buy Apple Records rather than have it stagger off into insolvency. As history shows, this didn't happen but, in 1974, he launched his own label Dark Horse Records. The most commercially successful act on the label was a duo called Splinter, whose debut album and single were both international hits. Although the duo of Purvis and Elliott continued to perform together until 1984, this 1977 record, the first recorded after they left Dark Horse for pastures new is still an unrecognised masterpiece. This is an extraordinary record, and one which I seriously hope is going to make more friends now than it did when it first came out.
