Bob DylanBest Of The Cutting Edge 1965/1966 – Bootleg Series Vol 12 ... CD
Columbia, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
Pinch yourself – you've gotta be dreaming – because Columbia Records just unlocked the vaults, and unearthed a treasure trove of never-heard recordings from the sessions from some of Bob Dylan's greatest records – Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde On Blonde! Each record is a masterpiece in its own right – the product of countless creative moments by Dylan in the studio, only some of which made it on record – leaving a lot more to be rediscovered all these many years later, and finally offered up to paint a vivid picture of Dylan's genius in 1965 and 1966! Some tracks are quite different – demos, acoustic versions, piano versions, and even a few rehearsals – and if you dig Bob Dylan at all, you'll find plenty here to love. 2CD set features 36 tracks in all – with unreleased unusual versions of "Tombstone Blues", "Positively 4th Street", "Love Minus Zero/No Limit", "California", "You Don't Have To Do That", "Like A Rolling Stone", "Medicine Sunday", "Desolation Row", "Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence", "Just Like a Woman", "Lunatic Princess", "I'll Keep It With Mine", and lots more!

Bob DylanGood As I Been To You (with download) ... LP
Columbia, 1992. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
A key turning point leading up to his brilliant late 90s-early 00s late career high points! Good As I Been To You is just Dylan alone on guitar, vocals and occasional harmonica – his first time back in this totally intimate mode in many years – and covering traditional folk songs. With his voice pretty weathered by this point, there's a rawness and realness that's pretty disarming after some overproduced late 80s Dylan efforts, and given how closely the melodies hue to his own early original material, it's almost like he's acknowledging his debts to these classic songs, including "Frankie & Albert", "Jim Jones", "Little Maggie", "Hard Times", "Froggie Went A Courtin'", "Tomorrow Night", "Sittin' On Top Of The World" and more.

Bob DylanHard Rain ... LP
Columbia, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
A live document of the mid 70s Rolling Thunder Revue era! The best of it recasts classic Dylan songs as well as ones from the then recent Blood On The Tracks as raucous rock & roll tunes, which might've puzzled a lot of longtime fans, critics, and maybe even casual concertgoers at the time, but like so many initially confusing creative left turns in Dylan's career, it's a lot more fascinating in retrospect. Includes a rave-up version of "Maggie's Farm", plus "Shelter From The Storm", "Idiot Wind", "I Threw It All Away", "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again", "Lay Lady Lay", "You're A Big Girl Now" and more.

Bob DylanHighway 61 Revisited (SACD hybrid) ... CD
Columbia, 1965. Used ... $7.99
A pivotal moment for Bob Dylan – and maybe one of THE albums of the 60s! The newly-electrified Dylan really takes off here – putting more punch and bit into his already-strong lyrical approach – and twisting things in amazing ways that still leave us breathless all these many years later! And sure, the album gave Bob a few hits – which are nestled in here next to headier tunes that work together perfectly. Titles include "Like A Rolling Stone", "Ballad Of A Thin Man", "It Takes A Lot To Laugh It Takes A Train To Cry", "From A Buick 6", "Desolation Row", "Highway 61 Revisited", and "Queen Jane Approximately".

Bob DylanLove & Theft (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Columbia, 2001. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $22.99 24.98
A late triumph for Dylan, and solidly delivering on the promise of his return to excellence on Time Out Of Mind a few years earlier – setting foot into the new millennium by hitting an even higher point in a pretty incredible comeback period! Dylan produces himself here, credited as Jack Frost, and he and his road tested band bring the varied rootsy vibe of his latter day sound to the forefront after the moodier, murkier vibe of the previous record. A genuine classic, with songs Dylan kept in his live setlist for many years to come – clearly the man himself is proud of this one, and rightfully so. Titles include "Tweedle Dee & Teedle Dum", "Mississippi", "Summer Days", "High Water (For Charley Patton)", "Honest With Me", "Po'Boy", "Cry A While", "Sugar Baby" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

The sprawling 1970 Self Portrait from Dylan – a record that caps off the most unpredictable period of his career – a mix of classic level Dylan originals and some really interesting choices of covers.

Bob DylanShadows In The Night ... CD
Columbia, 2015. Used ... $5.99
Dylan cherry-picks the Sinatra songbook – with much better results than you might expect – stripping the 50s and 60s gloss that made perfect sense when interpreted by Ol' Blue Eyes, and bringing to light the more intimate charms that the songs carry at their core. Bob's voice is actually in pretty strong form here – laying off on the raspy growl of his more ornery later material, and portraying these songs with simple, honest clarity. As is always the case on later Dylan records, his seasoned road band also serve as his studio players – and it's an especially strong showcase for pedal steel player Donny Herron – with Dylan veterans Tony Garnier, Charlie Sexton and others in fine form, too. A few tracks have horns and larger-than-usual arrangements for Dylan, but it's a pretty laidback charmer overall. Includes "I'm A Fool To Want You", "The Night We Called It A Day", "Full Moon And Empty Arms", "Theat Lucky Old Sun", "Where Are You?", "Some Enchanted Evening" and more. CD

Bob DylanShot Of Love (includes download) ... LP
Columbia, 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99 20.98
Maybe the most underrated Dylan album, from a one time underrated period all together – which is rightly changing these days! Shot Of Love finds Dylan in the tail end of his most forthrightly spiritual era, but it's got more of a rock & soul vibe than the more polished couple records before it. It's well worth having, and ultimately one of his best of the 80s. Includes "Shot Of Love", "Heart Of Mine", "Property Of Jesus", "Lenny Bruce", "Watered Down Love", "The Groom's Still", "Waiting At The Alter", "Dead Man, Dead Man", "In The Summertime", "Trouble", and the incredible "Every Grain Of Sand", now one the best and fan-treasured songs in Dylan's canon, even if the album it's on was underappreciated for so many years.

Bob DylanTempest ... LP
Columbia, 2012. Near Mint- 2LP ... $13.99
Bob Dylan and his great band whip up a moody, yet darkly humorous Tempest – and while the overall greatness of his records came down just notch or two after Love And Theft – this one goes the other way and comes pretty damn close to his late-era peaks! Lyrically, it's definitely better than the past couple records – with verse after verse of poetic storytelling – which is carried all the more effectively by his weathered rasp. Sound-wise, Dylan is as indebted as ever to pre-rock rhythm & blues, but there's some nice fuzzy electrified arrangements, too – and it's all played by a stellar band that's been with him for a long time now, one perfectly-suited for the style: guitarists Charlie Sexton & Stu Kimball, BR5-49 fiddler and steel guitarist Donnie Herron, bassist Tony Garnier, drummer George Receli, and a most noteworthy guest in Los Lobos' David Hidalgo on accordion. Includes "Duquesne Whistle", "Soon After Midnight", "Narrow Way", "Long And Wasted Years", "Pay In Blood", "Scarlet Town", "Early Roman Kings", "Tin Angel", "Tempest" and "Roll On John".

Columbia, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $18.99 19.98
Dylan on the road from the late 70s to early 80s – bringing words and wisdom that are more spiritually inspired than anything he'd put out before – backed by some of the most soulful arrangements and players he's ever had behind him! Trouble No More is all unreleased material and focuses on the live shows in support of what's since been dubbed Dylan's "Christian Period" – which is essentially true – and has long been ripe for a reassessment. The gravelly nature of his voice in the later years, which kind of begin here, gives it a really passionate vibe, while the bluesy soul arrangements and gospel style backing singers provide such a lovely backdrop. All tracks are previously unreleased, and captured live from throughout the 1979-1981 tours – with a few that were never on any Dylan studio albums at all, making the live recordings all the more vital! 2CD set includes versions of "Slow Train Coming", "Gotta Serve Somebody", "I Believe In You", "When You Gonna Wake Up?", "Gonna Change My Way Of Feeling", "In The Garden", "Every Grain Of Sand", "Previous Angel", "Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking", "Saving Grace", the unheard and unreleased "Ain't Gonna Go To Hell For Anybody", "Ain't No Man Righteous" and "Blessed Is The Name". Continuing the excellent Bootleg Series tradition, it's got an excellent set of notes & photos, too. CD

William C BeeleyGallivantin ... LP
North Park/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A beautiful little set from the enigmatic William Beeley – a singer/songwriter who's very clearly influenced by the early work of Bob Dylan – but who has a sound that quickly takes off in his own direction! Beeley begins the set with a version of a Dylan tune, but then opens up into some very personal songs of his own – presented with just vocals and guitar, in an up-close, honest style that's somewhere in the territory of Tim Hardin or early Leonard Cohen – not that William's copping their approach, just that the songs are that good, we'd easily rank them in such heady company. And although the set was originally issued on a tiny Texas label, the sound is much more northeast overall – on titles that include "Summer Colored Skin", "Carol", "And Then I'll Be Gone", "Easter Sunday Song", "Weathered Lady", and the album's ten minute closer "Little Wheel Spin & Spin & Co'Dine".

DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... LP
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy Gatefold ... $21.99
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which are really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". LP, Vinyl record album

Gilberto Gil gets off to a nicely soulful start here – by bringing in a guest appearance from Ed Motta on the album's title track – then keeping things in a nice mix of samba and soul throughout the entire album! There's a few slight touches of 80s production, but overall there's a lot more warmth and honesty going on here than on most other sets hitting the global market at the time – that undeniable charm and inventive songwriting that made Gil one of the Brazilian greats in the 70s – with a legacy that continues strongly well through this album. Titles include "O Eterno Deus Mu Danca", "Mulher De Coronel", "De Bob Dylan A Bob Marley", "Baticum", and "Do Japao". LP, Vinyl record album

Hudson (DeJohnette/Grenadier/Medeski/Scofield)Hudson ... CD
Motema, 2017. New Copy ... $11.99 14.99
A group who take their name from the Hudson River Valley – beautifully pictured here on the front cover – and a quartet who work in an equally expansive array of sounds – all sharp elements of tone and timing from a lineup that features Jack DeJohnette on drums, John Scofield on guitar, Larry Grenadier on bass, and John Medeski on piano, Fender Rhodes, and Hammond! The Hudson influence doesn't just stop at the name, though – because all these upstate New York musicians often pay tribute to other artists who left the city for points north – Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, and The Band – each of whom gets a tribute track on the album. About half the set is originals by members of the group – and if we had to pick one instrument that seems to have the strongest voice in the group, it might be the guitar of Scofield – maybe in part because he can skirt the two different worlds so well. Titles include "Tony Then Jack", "Dirty Ground", "El Swing", "Hudson", "Lay Lady Lay", "Woodstock", "Wait Until Tomorrow", and "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall". CD

Bert JanschIt Don't Bother Me ... LP
Transatlantic/Superior Viaduct, 1965. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Continuing genius from the great Bert Jansch – the singer/songwriter's second album, and one of his most sublime records ever! The album's got an up-close, personal vibe – mostly just Bert's vocals and acoustic guitar, a bit like the earliest albums by Bob Dylan – and like Dylan, Jansch has this approach that's completely his own – very much schooled in older 20th century traditions, but focused on finding a new way forward – with a mix of melodic and harmonic elements that flow from his guitar with effortless ease, and are matched by some beautifully pointed vocals by a singer who sounds unlike anyone else. At times, the tunes have a quality that's almost hypnotic – a bit of a John Fahey vibe in the progressions, but a bit warmer – and titles include "Tinker's Blues", "It Don't Bother Me", "Harvest Your Thoughts Of Love", "Lucky Thirteen", "As The Day Grows Longer Now", "So Long", "900 Miles", and "Ring A Ding Blues".

Hugo MontenegroRocket Man/Mammy Blue ... CD
Vocalion (UK), 1971/1975. New Copy ... $18.99
A pair of 70s albums from Hugo Montenegro – back to back on a single CD! Rocket Man is excellent – very groovy stuff! After paying tribute to Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan on other LPs, Hugo Montenegro turns his talents to the groovy compositions of Elton John in this nice album of moogy instrumentals – a set that's got some upbeat material that almost hits a funky club style – graced with loads of work on Arp by John Montenegro! The tune are all big ones by Elton, mostly – and the presentation here is pretty cool, with a very different vibe than the big hits. There's also a few solos by trumpeters Chuck Findley and Gary Barone – and titles include "Rocket Man", "Bitch Is Back", "Daniel", "Take Me To The Pilot", "Philadelphia Freedom", and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" – plus the originals "Splashdown" and "Blastoff", which bracket the album in a "rocket" theme. Mammy Blue is funky moogy material from Hugo Montenegro, recorded during the time when he was making the shift from crime jazz and vocal themes to more electronic stuff with a 70s groove! The record's got some very nice Arp on it in parts, and even though the tracks are mostly pop ones, they're given the usual Montenegro twist, and have a nice nutty edge. Titles include "Peace Train", "Zingaro", "Movin On", "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey", "Superstar", and "I Feel The Earth Move". CD

Grapefruit (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $22.99
British folk music got really weird and wonderful at the end of the 60s – light years from the crew cut versions of The Kingston Trio, or the twangy modes of Bob Dylan wannabees – but also very different from the more rockish directions that American folk acts were taking at the time! If anything, the British artists showed an even deeper commitment to acoustic modes – and far more ancient ones than American groups had access too – a thousand year legacy of British Isles music, but reworked into an often-trippy style would find more famous iterations in groups from Fairport Convention through Current 93, and even in the Wicker Man soundtrack as well! Most of the music here is much more obscure than those references – groups that were big in the UK, but maybe didn't have as much of an impact over here during the period – which makes this 63 track box set a real treasure trove of discovery – filled with many tunes we'd never heard before, and put together in a very special way. Titles include "Black Girl" by Mary Anne, "Till The Morning Comes" by Dando Shaft, "Roses For Columbus" by Mark Frhy, "Love Is A Funny Thing" by Spyrogyra, "Come All You Travellers" by Wight, "Willow's Song" by Nagnet, "Cruious Crystals Of Unusual Purity" by Bridget St John, "Prisoners Victims Strangers Friends" by Paper Bubble, "Gabilan" by Duncan Browne, "Meeting By The Moonlight Mill" by Dry Heart, "Silence Returns" by Beau, "Me & My Kite" by Fuschia, "The Colour Is Blue" by Country Sun, "Welcome To The Citadel" by Marc Brierley, "Garden Song (demo)" by Bill Fay, and "Upon Reflection" by Heron.

The title might seem a bit all-encompassing – but given the talents of the mighty Ralph Peer, it certainly fits! Peer was one of the most pioneering figures in the early days of the recording industry – a talent scout who would endlessly search the country, especially the south, for overlooked artists – which led to a phenomenal recording legacy that includes some of the most important early blues, country, and folk music captured on record! Peer was also a genius about publishing, too – and worked for the industry as sort of a "song collector" – taking local compositions and reworked traditional numbers, and finding a place for them in the greater mainstream – often with efforts that have gone onto become huge standards over the past century. This book tells the take of Peer's life and musical journey – with text by Barry Mazor, alongside some great images in a book-style package – complete with 3CDs that feature a total of 50 tracks in all – with music by a hugely diverse array of artists touched by Peer's talents. The artist roster includes Jimmy Davis, Memphis Jug Band, Mamie Smith, Jimmie Rodgers, Tommy Johnson, The Carter Family, Willie Nelson, Count Basie, Agustin Lara, Billie Holiday, Perez Prado, Tito Puente, Bob Dylan, Floyd Tillman, Desi Arnaz, and many others.

VariousWoody Guthrie – The Tribute Concerts – Carnegie Hall 1968/Hollywood Bowl 1970 (3CD/2 hardcover book set) ... CD
Bear Family (Germany), 1968/1970. New Copy 3CD & 2 hardcover bo ... $106.99 129.99
Woody Guthrie left this planet all too soon – in 1967, after years of struggle with Huntington's Disease – but not before leaving behind generations of singers and musicians who were forever in debt to his work! Some of the best of those artists came together here – in two legendary live tributes to Woody – one from 1968 at Carnegie Hall, the other from 1970 at the Hollywood Bowl – with amazing performances from Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Jack Elliot, Richie Havens, Tom Paxton, Odetta, Pete Seeger, and others – and accompaniment on the Carnegie set by The Band, and work on the Hollywood concert by Ry Cooder and other west coast musicians. Both shows are presented here in their entirety – along with 20 tracks that never appeared on the original albums – with all songs in their original performance order, as well as original narration by Peter Fonda, Robert Ryan, and Will Geer. But even along with the music – which might be expensive here for just 3 CDs – the set also features two different hardcover books – over 240 pages between them – with a huge amount of photos, images, writings, and other details that document these amazing events – packaged in a handsome slipcover too. The whole thing is one of the most beautiful packages we've ever seen from Bear Family – and is the long-overdue proper presentation of this material! CD

✨✧ David HajduLove For Sale – Pop Music In America (hardcover) ... Book
Farrar, Strauss & Giroux, 2016. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Author David Hajdu has given us some great books on Bob Dylan and Billy Strayhorn – and written some excellent work on comics, too – and here, he takes on the development of pop music in the 20th Century, with a nicely wide-ranging ear that follows changes from early blues, through the late 70s years of punk rock and disco, to the contemporary world of hip hop and digital music! The book is less of a complete history than it is a musical pathway, structured along some well-chosen keystones – not just artists and creators, but factors like transistor radios, sheet music, record charts, and other forces that were equally important to the growth of new sounds. This latter aspect of the book is especially illuminating – moreso in the face of the too-familiar path of the creative giants, which sometimes overlooks the other forces that were impacting music from the sidelines. Book is 307 pages, nicely dense, and hardcover. Book

✨✧ William C BeeleyGallivantin ... CD
North Park/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A beautiful little set from the enigmatic William Beeley – a singer/songwriter who's very clearly influenced by the early work of Bob Dylan – but who has a sound that quickly takes off in his own direction! Beeley begins the set with a version of a Dylan tune, but then opens up into some very personal songs of his own – presented with just vocals and guitar, in an up-close, honest style that's somewhere in the territory of Tim Hardin or early Leonard Cohen – not that William's copping their approach, just that the songs are that good, we'd easily rank them in such heady company. And although the set was originally issued on a tiny Texas label, the sound is much more northeast overall – on titles that include "Summer Colored Skin", "Carol", "And Then I'll Be Gone", "Easter Sunday Song", "Weathered Lady", and the album's ten minute closer "Little Wheel Spin & Spin & Co'Dine".

✨✧ DionKickin Child – 1965 Columbia Recordings ... CD
Columbia/Norton, 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A pretty amazing little record from Dion DiMucci – especially if you only know his earliest rock and roll hits! Dion was always a cat who was hipper than most of his mainstream contemporaries – as evidence by the surprisingly deep turn he'd take at the end of the 60s – but during his early years with Columbia, he was often improperly assigned to songs and sessions – and never really got to show off the more interesting ideas he had in mind for his music. Enter producer Tom Wilson, who was working with Bob Dylan during the early electric years – and who, on most of these tracks, allowed Dion himself to move in a folk rock direction – mostly on his own compositions, which re really incredible – and have a style that could easily sit next to the mid 60s classics on Columbia by The Byrds or Dylan, even though the label never thought much of the recordings at the time. Instead, some of these tracks were issued as singles, or got much later release – and some never saw the light of day at all – and are finally brought together here in a decades-overdue complete album of this great musical moment. If you dig the deeper strands of the transforming folk generation, you'll find plenty to love here – as a younger, clean-cut artist grows his hair, and really finds himself on titles that include "My Love", "Tomorrow Won't Bring The Rain", "Wake Up Baby", "Kickin Child", "Two Ton Feather", "Knowing I Won't Go Back There", "You Move Me Babe", "So Much Younger", and "Time In My Heart For You". Also includes versions of the Dylan tracks "Farewell", "It's All Over Now Baby Blue", and "Baby I'm In The Mood For You". CD

✨✧ Sir Douglas QuintetMendocino ... LP
Smash, 1969. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of the very best rock albums of the late 60s from overlooked genius Doug Sahm and his Sir Douglas Quartet – a brilliant hybrid of the laconic country and rural rock ragged glory that was piping through so many under appreciated groups at the time (and went on to be bastardized by crap factories like The Eagles) and classical Spanish and Mexican folk guitar playing. Sahm plays fiddle, guitar, pedal steel and just about anything with strings, along with the amazing Augie Meyers (who you may remember from the beautiful organ work he contributed to Bob Dylan's late masterpieces Time Out Of Mind and Love And Theft) and others. Beautiful stuff! Includes "Mendocino", "I Don't Want", "I Wanna Be Your Mama Again", "At The Crossroads", "Lawd, I'm Just A Country Boy In This Great Big Freaky City", "She's About A Mover" and more.

✨✧ Andrew Grant Jackson1965 – The Revolutionary Year In Music (hardcover) ... Book
Thomas Dunne, 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
You can talk about the Summer Of Love in 1967, or the year of Revolution in 1968 – but author Andrew Grant Jackson makes a great point here for 1965 as being one of the most exciting musical years of all time – a key turning point that helped set a tone for countless changes, sounds, and styles in years to come! The book follows the year season by season, and even contains a timeline too – laying out a massive 12 month span of sounds that saw the creation and release of John Coltrane's Love Supreme, James Brown's "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag", Staple Singers' Freedom Highway, The Impressions' "People Get Ready", Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited, The Byrds' "Mr Tambourine Man", Otis Redding's "Respect" – and dozens of other important records, all interwoven here with important Civil Rights and International history that happened in the year – events that, again, really set the theme for the following decade. The hardcover book is 328 pages, with lots of notes, and a small section of black and white photos. Book

Ugly Things, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great issue of this mighty magazine – a publication that we always wait for eagerly, then spend a huge amount of time reading – because each issue is so big and stuffed, there's plenty of articles to hold our attention! This issue's no exception to that rule, either – as it's got great long articles on the Goldebriars (the pre-Millenium group of Curt Boettcher), and the ultra-cool Equals from the UK scene – an important mixed group that featured a young Eddie Grant. There's also a big feature on Simon Stokes – and articles on Total Crudd, Captain Beefheart, Bob Dylan, Balloon Farm, and others – and as usual, there's lots more short features and reviews. Over 150 pages – and a very dense read! Magazine

✨✧ Blonde On BlondeRebirth (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Ember/Esoteric (UK), 1970. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
These guys may have a name that evokes a Bob Dylan album, but their sound is something else entirely – a magical blend of simple instruments in a really unique way – and a songwriting voice that really sets these guys apart from the rest! There were so many great UK groups at the end of the 60s, that possible giants like these guys often got buried in the release schedule of the labels – even though they've got a fully-formed sound right from the start, and a lyrical confidence that's very unique. The music's a bit psych, and not entirely prog – but also reaching for something bigger than any sound of a few years before – and even though the instrumentation is by the very familiar trio of guitar, bass, and drums, there's definitely something special about it – as is also the case with the lead vocals of singer David Thomas. Titles including "Castles In The Sky", "Circles", "Broken Hours", "Heart Without A Home", "Colour Questions", "You'll Never Know Me/Release" and "Time Is Passing". CD features bonus tracks – "Circles (single version)", "Castles In The Sky (alt version)", and "Time Is Passing (alt version)". CD
