The next song is "Superman", a very strange jazzy tune with saxophone, and a good happy rhythm with all the instruments, and funny voices singing the lyrics and choruses.

The last track "Day of the Percherons" is a complete folk song - just the name paves the way for the music - with a combination of instruments like celtic flutes, tambourine, drums, beautiful choirs, and folk guitar arrangements; I loved this tune because I love Mike Oldfield and Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn are two of my favourite albums. Also, this tune is what probably made Tom Newman go on with a more folk prog style in his next albums.

There are other songs included in the album, such as "Ham and Eggs", "Sweet 16" which are folk country songs, quite enjoyable or "Have Mercy on My Eyes" which is another boogie blues song. One thing I am sure about is that it is full of experimentation and it is highly enjoyable because the songs are different from each other.

Probably not highly essential or excellent in prog terms, but definitely is one of those albums that I would be very happy to add to my collection for the people that play in it, for the representation of Tom Newman and the others 's background. If you like all the combinations portrayed in this album, I give it 3 stars; if you don't like it but enjoy the rest of Newman's or Oldfield's albums, a 2 star is enough. I belong to the former group. Review by apps79 Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator.

Plenty of acoustic instruments blended with traditional British sounds recall Newman's Irish roots in an archaic Celtic mood, containg lots of flutes, percussion, bagpipes, oboe, harp and violins. These deliver a very rural atmosphere with a strong psychedelic approach. Parts of the album contain light orchestral textures with strings and very mellow keyboards. Combined with some nice Celtic tunes out of the grandiose bagpipes these seem to be the most passionate passages of an album, that otherwise sounds very hypnotic and extremely ethereal.

This album would strictly appeal to fans of dated Psychedelic Folk, loving acid and trippy atmospheres and do not mind the absence of rich instrumental movements. Review by stefro Prog Reviewer. One need go no further than the opening cut, like an outtake of an outtake from the weaker side of the "Tubular Bells" album. But where is Tom himself? Pretty catchy.

Please help by adding reliable sources.

Fine Old Tom shows Newman's level of comfort around a recording studio. It is a carnival ride through as many popular genres as there are tracks on the album. The production is rich and inventive, clean and warm on every one/5(3).

    Aug 18,  · referencing Fine Old Tom, LP, Album, V, V Apart from a few clunkers, this is a forgotten gem of an album. Pitched somewhere between eccentric pop, psychedelic folk and even a touch of music-hall, the albums highlight must surely be the mesmerising "Song For S.P." a touching ballad recorded on a Summer's day in the gardens of the Manor, bookended by a typically atonal Fred /5(36).
  7. Yotaxe says:
    A real sleeper, Fine Old Tom is a relatively obscure yet refreshing original pop/prog-rock project constructed by Newman and his pals, with Jon Field, Mike Oldfield, Ned Callan, Chris Cutler and Fred Frith in the starring roles. Everything on this eclectic album is done with original style and vigor to spare, convention being left by the wayside.8/
