This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… “I Want Too Much” by A House February 27, 2016

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

The ‘difficult second album’ recorded on Innisboffin, some of the reviews at the time were mixed and it failed commercially anding up with them being dropped by Blanco y Negro. Yet for all that ,it’s probably my favourite A House album.
Having seen them umpteen times, bought “Kick Me Again Jesus”/ “Snowball Down” (and played it quietly so my mother wouldn’t hear the lyrics) , I was really looking forward to “On Our Big Fat Merry go Round” yet for the greatness of “My Little Lighthouse”, “I’ll Always Be Grateful” and “Call Me Blue”, there were a few tunes that I wasn’t overly impressed with. Then the problem with Vinyl was that you had to listen to a whole side or else risk scratching the record unless of course you had one of those really fancy turntables with a switch and lever for lifting the needle up and down.
“I Want Too Much” came with it’s brilliant cover , although I wonder did the brown influence it’s sales?
