Let out your troubles from the old kit bag...

More 1968:

The Zombies, 'Butcher's Tale (Western Front 1914)'. A pop requiem for WW1; so much more brevity and subtlety than Pink Floyd's cudgelling 'Corporal Clegg', from the same year.

The Legendary Pink Dots start here; play this in league with 'Poppy Day' and shudder anew. Can't help but think of the footman-turned-squaddie Edward Barnes in the fourth and finest series of Upstairs, Downstairs...
