Peephole In My Brain - The British Progressive Pop Sounds Of 1971 = 3C (CD)
1971 is a strange, rather surreal year in British pop history: While American soft rockers and singer-songwriters dominated the album charts, the domestic pop/rock scene became increasingly eccentric in the year the country switched to decimal currency. - Marc Bolan invented glam rock, David Bowie wore a dress on the cover of his latest album, the Kinks provided the soundtrack for a film about a penis transplant, DJ Tony Blackburn chose an Edgar Broughton Band single as his record of the week and Jonathan King was backed by Fairport Convention on Top of the Pops. - Peephole In My Brain documents the progressive pop sounds of the year as the underground rock scene transitioned into the mainstream. Our 71 tracks from '71 include big hits from bands like Curved Air, Atomic Rooster and John Kongos, as well as a selection of key album cuts from Procol Harum, ELP, Magna Carta, Barclay James Harvest, Cressida, Help Yourself, Legend and many more. - We've also included tracks that were first released in 1971 but wouldn't make a name for themselves until later: Status Quo had to wait a while for "Mean Girl" to chart, Terry Dactyl & The Dinosaurs didn't find success until twelve months later when "Sea Side Shuffle" was reissued, and the Curtiss Maldoon album track "Sepheryn" was discovered more than twenty years later by Madonna, who used it as the basis for "Ray Of Light."
