I like your post but I don’t think this point I’ve quoted is correct. Shangri-la isn’t about Terry in the promised land; it’s about Arthur’s home in England. There are several clues, the main one being identical houses in a street yet owners bestowing fancy names on them, like Shangri-la. I know we’ll get into this when we get to the song, but the main point is that the album is written from the English perspective - it never gets into what life is really like in Australia for his son Terry. I agree with all the points made about the cover. The front is dark, yet also a bit Pythonesque. The enormous kangaroo - which incidentally looks nothing like a real kangaroo - seems a waste of all that gatefold space. It’s not subtle and it’s not that witty.
