Volume 1 (CD)
The music of this young Edinburgh trio was described in '69 as electro-flagellation, a phrase that aptly describes their vicious, Eastern-inflected guitar lines, pounding bass and frenetic percussion. Taped in a single twelve-hour stint in London that December, their sole album stands as one of the most distinctive and unsettling pieces of rock music ever recorded. Issued here with their full participation, their story - an enigma for decades - is finally told for the first time in an accompanying 16-page booklet, packed with previously unseen photographs, making it an essential purchase for all fans of heavy psychedelic rock and roll. Rare, sought after, and absolutely excellent heavy UK psychedelic album from 1970 - alternately hypnotic and hard-driving, with intense guitar workouts in a classic psych mould. J.J. LIGHT - HEYA! JJ Light is better known as Jim Stallings, sometime bassist with the Sir Douglas Quintet. In the summer of 1969 Heya - a hypnotic song with a distinctive Native American flavour - took much of Europe by storm, reaching audiences as far afield as Japan, South America and New Zealand. Yet, despite being the work of an American living in Los Angeles and signed to a major US label, neither the 45 nor its attendant album would ever be released in America. They make their long-awaited CD debut here, complete with copious bonus tracks including foreign B-sides and his long-lost, never-released second LP, also from 1969. Featuring contributions from members of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, the Electric Prunes, Derek & The Dominos and Love, and assembled with Stallings close involvement, the package comes complete with detailed liner notes and many rare photos.
