Thanks Ray for a set of extremely interesting and illuminating answers. Interesting to read about Steve Lipson and his razor blade tape editing- I think there was definitely more creativity before computers came along!

In addition to the other issues about the under-rated Dingly Dell I often wonder whether the album would have worked better if the tracks had been sequenced differently perhaps leading off with "Wake Up Little Sister" or "Court In The Act" and "Don't Ask Me" ? Nowadays shuffle play sorts any such issues but in vinyl days the first couple of tracks were often considered crucial album sellers. The placing of the instrumental "Plankton's Lament" in such a key position on the album always seemed strange to me!

I always thought that All Fall Down was an absolute classic, and thirty-odd years on I still can't understand why it was not a massive hit when released as a single.

That, I suppose, was the crucial event in my disillusionment with the music charts.

However, I have to agree with Derek, when I heard the album, Plankton's Lament following hot on its heels just didn't work for me, in fact, I still recall my initial sense of disappointment.
