    This is from the mid ‘80’s, probably their most chamber-like song. I especially love the intro...

    I find with these sub genres it can be hard to find complete albums that stick to that sound & atmosphere through out.
    Compilations are usually the way to go.
    The fading yellow series are worth investigating.
    This comp also covers that baroque, autumnal feel nicely.

    Pearls Before Swine to me were always a great band. Something about this seems a bit familiar, like it could have been really influential, I don’t know...

    It’s not a real chamber-pop party until some dude shows up with a calliope.

    RE: Nick Garrie: I'm guessing what you saw was indeed the 2008 Get Back label reissue. I initially saw about 6 sealed copies at a half price books in Indianapolis for cheap around that time. I bought 2 and gave one to a friend that I thought would like it (he did). While I hesitate to call it a great album, I do love the vibe and like about half the songs, especially that title track. :)

    A little obvious, I suppose, but if you haven’t listened to it in a while you’re in for a treat. Gary Usher knew exactly what to do with stuff like this.

    If you compiled a sequence of your favorite baroque pop tracks what would it be?

    Oh yeah! I totally zoned about him. He's the man for the days topic. Also Cardinal is Richard Davies songs and Erics arrangements. It's great too.
