Rainbow Takeaway Album

Kevin Ayers

About Rainbow Takeaway

Rainbow Takeaway is the eighth studio album by Kevin Ayers. The core band is essentially the same as its predecessor, Yes We Have No Mañanas (So Get Your Mañanas Today). Rainbow Takeaway marks the close of the 1970s Ayers progressive sound, with Billy Livsey’s synthesizer flourishes on "A View from the Mountain" providing a final coda to that era. Soul and Country elements are also present on Rainbow Takeaway coupled with the reggae rhythms on the standout track "Beware of the Dog II". The eccentric Ayers mélange is in full effect on the chaotic closer "Hat Song". Ayers retired to Deià, Spain shortly after the album’s release.
