Hurdy Gurdy emerged from the Danish group Peter Belli and the Boom Boom Brothers (aka The B.B. Brothers) in June 1967, when three members of the B.B. Brothers, guitarist Claus Bøhling, drummer Jens Otzen and British vocalist and bassist Mac MacLeod formed the power trio HUrdy Gurdy. Inspired by Cream but with more psychedelic leanings, they split from Peter Belli and MacLeod named the band ‘Hurdy Gurdy’. Amazing guitar work all over the record from Claus Bøhling, who later was a member of Danish band Secret Oyster. Claus also designed all the artwork for the single cover and rare poster, plus many unseen paintings on the printed inner sleeve and insert of this reissue. Plus many unseen photos in b/w and color plus extensive liner notes will complete this album. The single itself on famous Spectator Records is harder to get than the CBS album. What the band “Charlies” was for Finland, “Hurdy Gurdy” was for Denmark. Extra heavy guitar psychedelic with great drums and bass and extra cool vocals, on the same musical level as British Cream, sometimes even better! We love this album – solid underground all the way!
