parlando playlist #51: belle and sebastian - meat & potatoes [2006]

I don't know why "Meat & Potatoes" was tacked on as a b-side on the "Funny Little Frog" single. Not a track on The Life Pursuit album (which was the album that "Funny Little Frog" was from), nor an EP track (they'd stopped doing EPs by then -- a shame), nor even their one track by them on their DJ mix (LateNightTales) that came out in 2006. I assume there are many fans of theirs that have never heard it. That's a shame, because eventually when Belle and Sebastian comes out with their Greatest Hits, "Meat & Potatoes" should be on it but won't. (Not the rarities package -- The Third Eye Centre -- that came out a few months ago which, ahem, I just found out about writing this piece, and has "Meat & Potatoes". Hmm hmm, well, maybe some Belle and Sebastian fans haven't picked it up... well, not "fans", but people who like them but definitely not picking up everything... after all, rarities... It's a great song, anyway!)

"I was allergic to so much dairy"!

When B&S are funny, they're very funny indeed.

This is just superb, and I'd never heard it--thanks for sharing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Third_Eye_Centre lists the many tracks that didn't make the cut for that compilation. It includes a cover of the Primitives' "Crash," which I need to hear now!
