Egg - Egg CD (expanded)

SKU 23-ECLEC 2035
The first album by this legendary Canterbury trio of Dave Stewart (organ and tone generators), Mont Campbell-bass and vocals) and Clive Brooks on drums. Heavily influenced by classical music, Keith Emerson and the Nice and Soft Machine, they specialized in hypercomplex multi-time signature music. Egg's first album, originally released in 1970, features some great pieces that hover somewhere between keyboard-dominated Canterbury progressive and psychedelic. Remastered and researched by Mark Powell from the original master tapes as well as a great booklet designed by the wonderful Phil Smee, this includes 3 bonus tracks: their incredibly wonderful non lp single (Seven Is A Jolly Good Time/You Are All Princes) and, most importantly, the never before heard missing 3rd movement from Symphony Number 2 (actually "The Adoration Of The Earth" from The Rites Of Spring by Igor Stravinsky) which got pulled from the album at the very last minute due to publishing problems. The REAL math-rock - unique and highly recommended if you like this kind of thing.
