Stunning 1974 UK Original With Lyric Insert. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. “Lady June, Aka June Campbell Cramer, Was A Bohemian Artist And Poet Who Was Something Of An Honorary Member Of The Less Commercial Wing Of The Early-'70s British Progressive Rock Scene. Numerous Musicians Lived And Hung Out In Her Flat In The Maida Vale Area Of London, Which Is Most Famous As The Place Where (At A 1973 Party) Robert Wyatt Fell Out Of A Window, Paralyzing Him From The Waist Down. Linguistic Leprosy Is Such An Eccentric Piece Of Work That It's Safe To Say It Would Never Have Gained Release Had She Not Had Such Strong Art-Rock Connections, And Had Virgin Records Not Been At The Stage Where It Was Issuing Some Of The Least Commercial Progressive Rock Music Ever. While Lady June Does Take All Of The Lead Vocals On The Record, They're Actually Much More Spoken Poetry Than Singing. The Record Wouldn't Be Nearly As Interesting A Rarity To Art-Rock Fans As It Is Without The Substantial Contribution Of Her Producer And Longtime Friend Kevin Ayers. He Composed Most Of The Musical Settings For The Poems, As Well As Playing Numerous Instruments And Adding A Few Backup Vocals. Those Musical Settings Change The Album From The Rather Insignificant Spoken Word Effort It Could Have Been To Something Much More Interesting, As This Was The Era In Which No One Was More Skilled At Devising Varied, Whimsical Art-Rock As Ayers Was.” Richie Unterberger, AMG.
