SKU 23-ECLEC 42872
The EBB were one of the very first bands signed to EMI's newly launched psychedelic/progressive Harvest imprint, along with Pink Floyd! Largely forgotten now, but popular in their day, they were always performing at festivals and gatherings and were renowned for their great live shows.
Their albums were great too, combining heavy blues rock ala Cream, Groundhogs, Taste, Skid Row with a generally more freaky and improvised/out/psych vibe. I hear elements of Captain Beefheart and Family/Roger Chapman as well.
This is all their existing BBC recordings from 1969-1972, many of them never-before released!

“The Edgar Broughton Band burst on to the UK music scene in 1969 and were trail blazers for the underground counterculture, performing rock music with a social conscience. Hailing from Warwick and featuring Edgar Broughton (guitars, vocals), Steve Broughton (drums, vocals) and Arthur Grant (bass, vocals), their hard-hitting approach over a series of hit albums for EMI's Harvest label and appearances at the legendary Hyde Park Free Concerts earned them many loyal fans and several hit singles (including their anthem 'Out Demons Out!') and the reputation of being a true "people's band". In 1970 the band was expanded to include guitarist Victor Unitt.
The band's relationship with the BBC began in January when they recorded their first session for John Peel's Top Gear show. Peel was an early champion of the band, and this session appeared some months before their debut album 'WASA WASA!' Over the next four years The Edgar Broughton Band recorded a number of sessions for Top Gear and Sounds Of The 70s along with two memorable In Concert appearances. This new official 4CD set gathers together these recordings, all newly remastered from the BBC masters and features 32 previously unreleased tracks.”
