Ace | 2×LP | 37 €

The latest project from two/thirds of Saint Etienne is a compact disc and deluxe double LP of English music that represented the transition from psychedelia to prog as the 60s moved into the 70s. Most of it is not an easy listen, but it's always interesting, melodic, melancholy, with jazz and folk touches.While America may have licked its wounds at the turn of the seventies by turning to singer/songwriters, purveyors of homilies like "teach your children well", Britain wasn-t so ready to give up the trappings of psychedelia. And while the UK counterculture may have shed its "faith in something bigger", it wasn-t about to chuck out the mellotron. This is how the day after the sixties felt> damp, fuzzy/headed, neither optimistic nor pessimistic but more than a little lost. British bands would mirror the ennui of the new decade with a new kind of music. Lavishly put together, with two of Peter Mitchell's iconic photographs of 1970's Leeds.The double LP is on 180g clear vinyl with a heavy card sleeve.track listingDISC ONESIDE 11.LOVE SONG WITH FLUTE / Caravan2.MOON BIRD / The Roger Webb Sound3.EARLY MORNING EYES / The Parlour Band4.PAMELA / Scotch Mist5.THE PRISONER *EIGHT BY TEN( - SpringSIDE 21.LAST CLOUD HOME / The Orange Bicycle2.JLT / T23.TIL THE CHRIST COME BACK / Bill Fay4.REFUGEES / Van Der Graaf Generator5.VERY NICE OF YOU TO CALL - AardvarkDISC TWOSIDE 31.BIG WHITE CLOUD / John Cale2.BOTTLES / Belle Gonzalez3.WATCHING WHITE STARS / The Way We Live4.WINDFALL / Offspring5.NEVER LET GO - CamelSIDE 41.WISE MAN IN YOUR HEART / Daevid Allen2.O CAROLINE / Matching Mole3.EDGE OF THE SEA / Prelude4.EVENING SHADE / Alan Parker ^ Alan Hawkshaw
