Concept - Invasion
Rare, collectable, late 70s psych/underground rock from Canada, which isn't quite as amazing as they make it out to be below, but which is still a very good record as long as you don't get too caught up in the massive hype. First time on CD, as far as I know.
"Originally released 1979 on Reveal, Concept's 1st album Invasion is truly a highlight of Canadian psychedelic and acid rock. Its undoubted relevance to connoisseurs of psychedelic and acid rock finds valid in the group's multiple talents playing music of the late sixties /early seventies in the late '70s and early '80s. Maybe a little bit anachronistic then, but today a real killer for all lovers of the genre. Musically Concept's Invasion reminds sometimes of the early recordings of Amon Düül II with flaming guitar extensions, occasionally strange sound effects and surprising hooks. Guitar player Peter Riden was the main creative force in the band, although on both albums the songwriting and music credits are shared around the band. Bonus tracks are very rare 7" 'Eliminate the Bill/Pour une Faveur.' CD comes with comprehensive fully-colored booklet with liner notes and lyrics. Don't miss this very rare nugget. Original album is very expensive, This is a must-have for all lovers of psychedelic/acid rock."
