East Of Eden - Snafu (expanded/remastered)

Great to see this very fine, early, UK art-rock classic reissued properly!

"East of Eden's second album, 'Snafu' was originally released in 1970 by Deram Records and saw the band take their particular fusion of jazz, psychedelia, world music and even blue beat, one step further. As ever, the instrumental prowess of Dave Arbus on violin dominated the music, leading eventually to Arbus playing the infamous violin solo on "Baba O'Reilly" by The Who. 'Snafu' was the result of many months in the studio, where a second album had been virtually completed before being shelved in favour of starting work on a fresh project. This Eclectic Discs reissue has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features many unreleased bonus tracks, including five previously unreleased tracks from the aborted album sessions and alternate demo and single versions of their 1971 chart single, "Jig-A-Jig". An extensive essay features interviews and previously unseen photographs."
