The Bean King is a welcome re-issue of Curtis’s debut album, which coincidentally was the first album release on the Floating World label.
Featuring performances from a galaxy of talent assembled during recording, the album is a perfect showcase for Curtis’s prodigious songwriting skills. There is a cornucopia of styles from the softer ‘Emily’ to the out and out rocker ‘Heart Like A Wheel’. Something for everyone, and all in one record.
The liner notes explain the tradition of The Bean King celebrated on the feast of Epiphany or 12th night, which also happens to be Curtis’s birthday. Join the party with your own copy of The Bean King.
