Album: Two Halves For The Price of One
. . .
For a band that only recorded two studio albums in their original incarnation, The Soft Boys discography is a bit of a mess. Besides those two albums, they recorded a bunch of singles, EPs, b-sides and songs that didn’t originally get released while they were still around. Also confusing: original bassist Andy Metcalfe was replaced by Matthew Seligman for Underwater Moonlight, but came back to work with Hitchcock (along with drummer Morris Windsor) as one of the Egyptians.
Anyways, after Underwater Moonlight blew me away, I went casting about for more Soft Boys music, and the next thing that I found was the strange Two Halves For The Price of One, a compilation that put together one side of Underwater Moonlight outtakes (called Only The Stones Remain) and one side of live recordings from that same period (called Lope at The Hive).
