In A Hand Or A Face

Piano by Nicky Hopkins.
Originally titled ‘Round and Round’ and recorded on May 27.

[Pete: “‘A Hand or a Face’ was cynical and tried to cut down the growing dependence I had on mysticism and psychic phenomena.”

But isn’t it almost psychic that an album that seems to presage the punk rock revolution, has in its last song the race being ended by a Pistol? The Sex Pistols’ first show came less than three weeks after the release of this LP.]
