Nektar - A Tab in the Ocean (expanded) 2 x vinyl lps (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)
This was the second album released by this English-by-way-of-Germany spacerock band. It was recorded in 1972 and features Taff Freeman (mellotron, pianos, organ, vocals), Roye Albrighton (guitars, vocals), Mo Moore (bass) and Ron Howden (drums).
Despite my fondness for the pure psychedelic progressiveness of Journey To The Centre Of The Eye, A Tab In The Ocean is the first release where they really gain their very unique sound and sense of self. Another excellent spacerock release.
"Deluxe double green vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Digitally remastered and expanded reissue of the epic 1972 prog rock masterpiece that remains a landmark of the genre and one of the most popular albums of Nektar's illustrious career.
Includes the original 1972 mix of the album plus the significantly different 1976 remix by Larry Fast plus detailed liner notes, rare photos, personal reflections from Nektar leader Roye Albrighton, and more.
The band formed in Hamburg, Germany in 1969. Throughout their early existence the band's songwriting was credited as a group effort. The band's early albums Journey to the Centre of the Eye (1971), A Tab in the Ocean (1972) and... Sounds Like This (1973) were obscure psychedelic rock albums that won the band a growing cult following, based largely on word of mouth."
