Made In England
First official issue, taken from the original DECCA master tapes, of this amazing mod/psych/freakbeat rarity from 1969, featuring members of T2 and The FLIES. An album from the very end of the psychedelic era, one of the last landmark albums when bands seemed play exactly what they wanted, instead of opting for either the mainstream or the gutter; the psych-pop sensibilities of 1967 still live in ‘Paper Man’, ’Eileen’s Haberdashery Store’ and ‘Dougal’, ‘Silver’ and ‘Top O’ The Pops Cock?!?’ give us a nasty Deviants proto-punk edge, while the mournful ‘Friday Hill’ sounds like Caravan on Prozac. Quintessential English eccentricity! This Acme/Lion issue comes complete with new sleeve-notes, photos and the legendary and mega-rare single “Halo in my Hair” b/w “Portcullis Gate” as bonus tracks. A classic album finally gets proper recognition!!!
