Arcadium - Breathe Awhile 180 gram vinyl lp + 7" EP (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

SKU 18-Acme ADLP 1877
"An absorbing, intoxicating proto-prog album with a decidedly downtrodden feeling and flourishes of biting acid guitar....compellingly dark with a tangential songwriting approach that is challenging, but always enriching, this band seems to stumble their way through certain passages but always come out the better for it, lush and dynamic with great subtlety and drama."-Bobby Drake

“Acme is proud to announce the reissue of one of the top ten best albums ever made in the UK from the late 60's early 70's. This killer features overdriven organ sounds mix with scorching lead guitar, lengthy tracks throughout and a superb open/basement sound that collectors love that can be only found on certain records, and Arcadium is one such album. The whole album has been remastered and the album is presented in its original form. In addition, the release comes with a bonus 7" single containing three bonus tracks, including one unreleased track taken from an acetate that a well known collector has had in his collection for many years. 180 gram vinyl pressing shrink-wrapped, with no barcode.” Some album notes from Julian Cope’s Head Heritage site: ‘Walk On The Bad Side’ is a Procol Harum meets Peter Hammill bummer ballad with some nice organ touches the song really ignites about midway through into another full on acid-rocker; ‘Change Me’ begins in the group's usual doomy fashion with organ and what sounds like an electric sitar, the singer again sounds like he's fighting a losing with life and on the verge of collapse. The album finishes with it's best song called ‘Birth, Life and Death,’ a ten-plus minute psychedelic tour de force that begins with air raid sirens then shifts dramatically into a blazing acid drenched guitar/organ workout, the piece slows down at about five minutes in and becomes a diseased Van Der Graaf Generator type thing in the ‘Pawn Hearts’ frame of mind, the song's coda is a spooky death dirge that leaves you feeling quite unsettled, the singers are all chanting ‘Goodbye, Goodbye My World’.”
