One of the first signings to Vertigo Records, Juicy Lucy’s second album was a fine work and spawned their classic interpretation of Frank Zappa’s Willie the Pimp.

When former Skip Bifferty vocalist Graham Bell joined former NICE drummer Brian Davison's Every Which Way, the remaining members (Tom Duffy, Mick Gallagher, John Turnball and David Montgomery) formed this progressive rock outfit. Reuniting with Graham Bell the following year the group became Bell + Arc, recording an acclaimed album for Charisma Records. This release will be warmly greeted by collectors of early 1970's progressive music. Our Price: £10.95

Snafu
East of Eden's second album, 'Snafu' was originally released in 1970 by Deram Records and saw the band take their particular fusion of jazz, psychedelia, world music and even blue beat, one step further. As ever, the instrumental prowess of Dave Arbus on violin dominated the music, leading eventually to Arbus playing the infamous violin solo on 'Baba O'Reilly' by The Who. 'Snafu' was the result of many months in the studio, before being shelved in favour of starting work on a fresh project. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and features many unreleased bonus tracks, including five previously unreleased tracks from the aborted album sessions and alternate demo and single versions of their 1971 hit, 'Jig-A-Jig'. An extensive essay features interviews and previously unseen photographs. Our Price: £10.95
