10" gatefold with 26 page lyric book70TH Anniversary of this unique recording taken from Scarborough born Edith Sitwell series of poems and on the 100th anniversary of the original transcripts...Released with the original rare Jim Flora artwork, this beautiful package includes 26 page lyric booklet...Sitwell was like the Wahol of her day, publishing a mountain of essays and poems covering every aspect of the arts...The Scarborough-born poet-eccentric extraordinaire who had once publicly declared that her immense wisdom had been born of a long, unrequited love affair with the Russian painter, Pavel Ychelitchew - unrequited on the account of his homosexuality...Sitwell fan Morrissey, heavily featured Edith as his tour mascot on his Kill Uncle tour and used her image as his stage backdrop and on his T-shirts... and like Morrissey, Sitwell also had a knack of putting her foot in it, pontificating at one of her world famous Bayswater Tea parties, I have been bought up on Rhythm as other children were bought up on Glaxo! And another, when a coachload of noisy children were arriving, "it almost makes one wish for another King Herod!"
