Recordings: Section 5 of 16 : Ben Bagley

The brainchild of the late Ben Bagley, the Painted Smiles Revisited series alternately delights and appals. His commitment to recording rarities should earn the undying gratitude of us all, but some tracks are ruined by his inability to prevent himself expressing an often grotesque sense of humour. The sado-masochistic Haunted Heart on the Schwartz disk is a notable low point. Happily the eleven Fields tracks (not all of which are rare) emerge relatively unscathed.
