The Kursaal Flyers: The Great Artiste (UK) ****

Jonh Ingham, Sounds, 28 February 1976

THE KURSAALS have always had a way with visuals and image – Paul Shuttleworth's background in commercial art no doubt. Just check the ad for this new album. Terrific is barely adequate description. The same applies to the album cover, which is easily the equal of Chilli Willi for inspired lunacy. And which – of course – has almost nothing to do with the contents.
