Dr. Strangely Strange - Kip of the Serenes (expanded/remastered)

SKU 25-HUX-CD-104
Dr. Strangely Strange were a very good, although not very well known progressive/weird folk outfit from the UK, who can be (and were) favorably compared to The Incredible String Band. They released two classics in their lifetime and this is the highest quality reissue of this album that's ever been done. Includes a 32 page book.

"Based in Dublin, Dr Strangely Strange were friends and contemporaries of the Incredible String Band, whose producer Joe Boyd signed them to his Witchseason management and production company in 1969. This first album originally came out in mid 1969 on Island Records. Over the years, Kip has acquired a considerable cult status; in 2007, Record Collector Magazine proclaimed it one of the UK's 'hundred most collectable progressive rock records.' Previous CD reissues of Kip have been of variable quality, but we have now set matters right with this special Collectors' Edition. Using the tape restoration skills of the Audio Archiving Company, we have re-mastered the album directly from the original stereo mixes and added four previously unheard bonus tracks, taken from the original studio sessions. Belying the age of the tapes, the sound quality is sparkling. Music historian Adrian Whittaker, responsible for our well-received archive Strangelies release Halcyon Days, has put together a lavish accompanying booklet including a history of the band, new interviews with the band members, Joe Boyd and writer Iain Sinclair, full lyrics to the songs and many previously unseen photographs."
