Please - 1968/69

SKU 18-ACLN 1018 CD
Yet more and quite interesting Peter Dunton archival work, pre-dating and leading to his work with T2!

"Superb and historic collection of 1968-1969 UK psych—excellent somber, moody, minor key demo material taken from original master tapes and restored acetates. Trying to follow the chronology of Peter Dunton’s projects is difficult—these tracks were recorded soon after the demise of Neon Pearl, around the time the other original members of Please were recording the Bulldog Breed album for Deram, and just after Dunton had left Gun to rejoin forces with bass player Bernie Jinks, his co-leader in phase one of Please for the band that would eventually emerge as T2. Booklet contains lyrics, and notes on the various moves and disintegrations. This disc features the original killer demo version of 'No More White Horses' (a song that T2 would take into another dimension on their epochal "It'll All Work Out In Boomland" album, also available in our Acme/Lion series), as well as 'Folder Man,' written by Peter Dunton, which has been utilized by Gnarls Barkley on 'The Odd Couple.' Includes an alternate version of the stunning Syd Barret-esque 'We Aim To Please' as a CD-only bonus track."

"The songs 'No More White Horses' and 'Strange Ways' are absolutely stunning. 'No More White Horses' is, in my opinion, as good as any song done by any band in the 1960's. Right there with 'In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,' 'Dazed And Confused', or '21st Century Man.' Do yourself a favor, hear it."-rateyourmusic
