Andy Fairweather Low: La Booga Rooga [A&M, 1975]
Low may be wide-eyed and legless, but I wouldn't compete with him over the long haul--he's got staying power. What he sees is often connected to the downs and ups of the biz, but because his metaphors are vernacular and his attack allusive his songs sound like the outcries of anyone who's ever felt outclassed, outcast, outranked, or outraged by the money boys. And although he's half-way to everything, he never whines or comes on as a misunderstood artist--just swallows it all but his pride. And then jumps up and turns around.
