    This is a recording of Robyn Hitchcock and The Egyptians at the 1992 Cambridge Folk Festival. It's a fine snapshot of a band, which at that point had been playing together for the better part of a decade. The set draws from their later A&M albums, but also dips further back to "Egyptian Cream." The Egyptians prove a tight combo with an especially vigorous bass guitar player in Andy Metcalfe (who was also concurrently the keyboard player for Squeeze). Their vocal skills are nicely shown off here as well, and the often complex harmony parts of their studio albums are rendered perfectly live on stage. Though Hitchcock and his Egyptians never achieved significant commercial success, it's clear that the omission was purely the result of marketplace peculiarities, and no fault of this fine band.
