Juli@n Cop3- Be@utiful Lov3 EP (1991) MP3 & FLAC

"Caught by the knob by the sickening mob, laid on a raft left for dead."

Many of Julian Cope's best songs can be found on his EPs, and there is no better example of this than "Port of Saints" from his Peggy Suicide-era EP Beautiful Love. Here Cope mixes up a brew of Brel, Scott Walker and psychedelia to create his own refracted approximation of  "Port of Amsterdam," and then somehow leaves this diamond off the album. If that isn't enough, the song, to the best of my knowledge, has never been anthologized, so this EP is the only place to find it.

Beautiful Love EP
1. Beautiful Love  (3:12)
2. Port of Saints  (3:44)
3. Love L.U.V.  (6:50)
4. Unisex Cathedral  (2:29)


  1. careful with the Cope, he's notorious for slamming down CAD orders on file sharers

  2. And that would not be good.....not at all.

  3. it's a shame really cos some of his stuff is hard to get hold of unless you bought it when it was released

  4. spaceman73, thanks for the warning; we'll see what happens. I have a treasure trove of lossless Cope to share

  5. spaceman73, is there any Cope or TDE album in particular you'd like to see posted?

  6. Fried would be wonderful

  7. skellington is great, and the unreleased bonus tracks of skellington as well. one of my all time favorites!

  8. might do "droolian" too. Probably should do a Cope series, but I don't want him knocking on my door with a C&D
