Irish Coffee - Irish Coffee CD (expanded)

"Irish Coffee are from Aalst in Flanders, the Dutch speaking northern part of Belgium. They are regarded - and quite right so - as the best progressive band of their country. Already in 1971 the band released their one and only LP. It was copied and counterfeited on various LP and CD editions, almost all of them illegal and often in a poor quality. Here, at last, comes its legal edition on CD with all the former insufficiencies of sound erased, and thus in a fine quality of sound. As bonus you will find all tracks from their 7" singles. The booklet gives you not only a detailed insight of the band's history, but also a full discography and a lot of photographs of the band, the various covers, and labels. Their music - two guitars, organ, bass, drums, and songs in English - is classified as progressive hard rock, yet, it doesn't sound that hard at all."

"Their 1971 eponymous album eventually sold 3,000 copies (by Belgian underground rock standards, this was highly impressive). With powerful vocals and the semi-classical electric guitar and organ lines, Irish Coffee were a Belgian equivelent of Deep Purple or 2066 & Then...A recommended album for anyone interested in the vintage heavy progressive sound and indeed the favorite Belgian album of several collectors."-Scented Gardens of the Mind
