"Super limited picture disc LP, with new Babs Santini artwork. Already sold-out at source * One pressing and that’s it, buy or die – you know the drill."
Sylvie and Babs is one of the most memorable, playful, and fascinating albums in the NWW oeuvre (though a decidedly unrepresentative one)…few (if any) other artists could’ve woven capricious contrarianism, low humor, bad puns, endless non-sequiturs, and chaos into such a satisfying whole“ – Anthony D’Amico
In his book "England's Hidden Reverse", David Keenan describes Sylvie & Babs as "some light relief in the early Nurse catalogue." Steven Stapleton told Keenan "I wanted to make a record that was stolen from other people's records." Although largely collaged from easy listening records Stapleton acquired in the late-1970s and early-1980s, the album boasts a large cast list of over 40 people.
