Second Hand - Death May Be Your Santa Claus (expanded/remastered)

Great to see this very odd album reappear, now in a newly remastered and expanded edition, which includes 3 tracks not on the original album. This is definitely proto-progressive UK styled underground rock, with a lot of invention and ideas being shot about - some of them more successfully than other, but at least they have fresh ideas! When Second Hand finally wound down, the keyboardist and drummer later went onto 'fame' as Seventh Wave!

"Second Hand's debut album, Reality, is widely acclaimed as one of the best psychedelic albums to have emerged from the UK in the late 1960s. The follow-up, Death May Be Your Santa Claus, originally issued in April 1971, is a similar milestone in the progressive genre. Originally recorded as the soundtrack to an obscure underground movie, it's a dark, dense and challenging masterwork combining uniquely experimental compositions with wild organ playing and complex rhythms. This is its definitive edition, remastered from original tapes and complete with a booklet offering rare photographs, detailed liner notes and an introduction from its producer, the legendary Vic Keary."
