Henry Cow's politics were as radical as their music, - no wonder the dominant color of the artwork is red, which symbolizes Communist ideologies - and this was never more explicit than on In Praise of Learning, the second album to emerge from the Henry Cow/Slapp Happy collaboration and the third Henry Cow album. Two albums were recorded almost at the same time by both groups together, the first one being released under Slapp Happy's name and called Desperate Straights, while this one was released a few months later

In November 1974, Slapp Happy invited Henry Cow to record with them on their second album for Virgin. The result was Desperate Straights, an almost entirely Slapp Happy-composed album that surprised everyone, considering how dissimilar the two groups were. The success of this venture prompted a merger of the two bands. In early 1975 the merged group began rehearsing for In Praise of Learning in a freezing gymnasium. It was an arduous and extremely demanding time, something Slapp Happy were not prepared for, and it soon became apparent that the merger might not work

In Praise of Learning is an album by British avant-rock groups Henry Cow and Slapp Happy, recorded at Virgin Records' Manor studios in February and March 1975. It was the second of two collaborative albums by the two groups and was released in May 1975. The album cover art work was by artist Ray Smith and was the last of the three "paint socks" to feature on Henry Cow's albums.

Concerts is a live double album by English avant-rock group Henry Cow, recorded at concerts in London, Italy, the Netherlands and Norway between September 1974 and October 1975. Sides one and two of the LP record consist of composed material while sides three and four contain improvised pieces. The album includes Henry Cow's last John Peel Session, recorded in September 1975 and extracts from a concert with Robert Wyatt at the New London Theatre in May 1975

Past the IPOL album release, Henry Cow would then absorb some of Slapp Happy's members, most notably singer Krause, thus effectively killing Slapp Happy, While this HC album could make a good introduction to Henry Cow's musical adventures, you might want to check out LegEnd album as well.
