Hey Rattlers: Here s a question for Aymeric (or anyone else who might know) about my favorite progressive album. Over the decades since it s release I alwaysMessage 1 of 4 , Mar 1, 2011View SourceHey Rattlers:
Here's a question for Aymeric (or anyone else who might know) about my favorite progressive album. Over the decades since it's release I always believed that the track "Slightly All The Time" was written by Mike Ratledge alone as he is credited on the album as the the sole author. A few years ago I was told that that isn't entirely true. And that Hugh Hopper was responsible for parts of "Slightly..." How did that come about and what parts of the track are Hugh's?
[The first half (8 minutes or so) is all Ratledge's - "Slightly All The Time" proper. The second is simply the "Mousetrap" medley without the actual "Mousetrap" theme... If you compare it to the June 1969 BBC version you'll see it's all there : the build-up to "Noisette", "Noisette" itself, "Backwards", then the "Backwards" chords played on top of the "Mousetrap" bass line and the final reprise of "Noisette"... Since both "Mousetrap" and "Noisette" are by Hugh, there's quite a bit of music that's more his than Mike in there - A.]
Thank you A! Wow... Did Hugh ever mention to you about this? I m assuming that Mr. Ratledge got the writing royalties...

[Well, "Noisette" is credited as such on some pressings of "Third", so in this case I would guess Hugh got a portion of the royalties? Or they thought it evened out with Mike's solo intro for "Facelift"? - A.]
