Over time its become fashionable to perceive BL as an album where the wishes of Nick were overshadowed by others Robert Kirby, who was there, states this was not the case. Indeed Joe Boyd was very much against the 3 instrumentals but Nick insisted they remained. Because they were there for a reason. Fast forward to 1993 and Weller's Wild Wood album and 2014 for Beck's Morning Phase. Both albums use instrumental tracks in very much the same way.
