Although its title refers to the extinction of elephants, World Party’s Goodbye Jumbo is every bit as enjoyable and eclectic as it was twenty-four years ago.
Goodbye Jumbo, the follow-up to World Party’s 1986 debut, Private Revolution, is nothing short of masterful. Released on April 24, 1990, the album is essentially a solo effort from the former keyboardist of The Waterboys, Karl Wallinger.
The legend of the “great lost album” is one of the most enduring in rock ‘n’ roll.
In the case of Uncle Green, fondly remembered from their major-label days in the early-to-mid ’90s, the legend is actually true. And the evidence — sometimes scarce with legends — can be found today at your favorite music retailer. It is called Rycopa.
