House of Love – Feel

The Feel EP is one of the gems of the Babe Rainbow era. It still has it’s feet in the earlier classic era, even though it came out after the album. There are at least half a dozen versions of the single, the one I have contains two cover songs.

The other song on the EP that is penned by Guy Chadwick besides Feel is Let’s Talk About You. This is a petty revenge song that he wrote about, Terry Bickers.  They must have buried an entire hardware shop full of hatchets to get the House Of Love back together.

It’s All Too Much is a Beatles cover, which appeared on the soundtrack to Yellow Submarine.   The influence of the Beatles through the work of the House of Love is apparent, most obviously through their tribute song Beatles And The Stones.

The last song is the House of Love’s take on Cream’s Strange Brew. I would not really associate them with Cream, but this is a very good cover. It sometimes sounds like the House of Love, and sometimes doesn’t. A strange audio experience.
