Blossom Toes - Love Bomb: Live 1967-1969 : 2 x CDs (special)

While they last, this is $12.00 off the regular price!

This is a pretty great thing to see. The 1967 Swedish show has long been available in trading circles, but here it is sounding the best it can (reasonably good considering the age), made directly from tapes supplied by engineer Anders Lind, who later went on to record many great Swedish bands for Silence. This has the band at an early psychedelic peak, while the 1969 material is also interesting and even more 'far out', if not as good sounding and - and as it says below, Frank Zappa even jams along with them at Amougies.

"Blossom Toes are well established as one of the UK's best-loved '60s psych bands, and this double CD set captures them at the height of their powers. CD1 was recorded live in Stockholm's Filip Club on August 26th 1967, just after they'd completed their classic debut, We Are Ever So Clean. It finds the band poised between that album's cheery pop-psych and the dense progressive psychedelia of its follow-up, 1969's If Only For A Moment. Previously available only as an incomplete bootleg, it is mastered from original tapes supplied by the engineer who recorded it, Anders Lind. CD2 kicks off with two rare tracks from 1967 radio sessions, then continues with two cuts apiece from the band's appearances at 1969's Amougies and Bilzen festivals -- the latter boasting a guest appearance from none other than Frank Zappa. The set comes complete with a full booklet including rare photos and an introduction from the band's leader, Brian Godding, making it essential for all fans of British psychedelia."

"Everyone agrees they're one of our very best groups live." --Disc & Music Echo, 1969

"The archetypal mid-to-late '60s English band: talented, imaginative, full of potential." --Ptolemaic Terrascope
