Stackridge - Stackridge CD (expanded)

SKU 23-ECLEC 2834
Early 70s British proto-progressive band that someone once compared to the harmony soaked late Beatles sound mixed with Joy of a Toy era Kevin Ayers!

“Formed in Bristol in 1969, Stackridge were one of the most unique British bands of the era. Their initial line-up featured Andy Davis (guitar, keyboards, vocals), James Warren (guitar, vocals), James “Crun” Walter (bass), Michael “Mutter” Slater (flute, vocals), Michael Evans (violin) and Billy Bent (drums). Possessing a gift for melody, musicianship and a fine sense of humour and English eccentricity, their concerts were legendary.
Throughout 1970 they honed their song writing and live act, appearing at the very first Glastonbury festival that year. In 1971, Crun Walter departed the band and James Warren assumed bass guitar duties. They signed to MCA Records and recorded their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, issued in August of that year.
This Esoteric Recordings edition has been expanded to include four bonus tracks, two of which are from the band’s first BBC radio session for John Peel’s Top Gear.”
