The Battle Of North West Six - Keef Hartley Band

The Battle Of North West Six
Keef Hartley came to prominence as a member of the british R&B group the artwoods before joining John Mayall'sBluesbreakers in 1967. He contributed to the album crusade before leaving in 1968 to form the first line-up of his own band. He recorded his first album, Halfbreed (also re- released this month) for Decca'sDeram label in March 1969. Regarded as a classic of the fusion of rock, jazz and blues, Hartley went one better later in the year by changing the lineup of his band to include gifted guitarist, vocalist and writer Miller Anderson. This new band recorded the wonderful battle of north west six for decca later that year, around the same time they performed at the legendary Woodstock Festival. Unavailable for many years, Esoteric Recordings are pleased to reissue the album with liner notes by Keef Hartley.

All The Good That's Happening
After scoring a national US hit in mid-1966 with their garage band classic Hey Joe, seminal LA folk-rockers The Leaves moved from local label Mira to Capitol Records. Recorded in the autumn of 1966, All The Good That’s Happening was their major label debut album. However, it proved to be their last recording, with the group splitting up early the following year when founder member Jim Pons quit to join the Turtles.

Unavailable in CD format for nearly two decades, and previously unreleased outside of America, All The Good That’s Happening is now finally given wider exposure. Boasting such lysergic weird-outs as Lemmon Princess and the Byrdsish On The Plane alongside superb, spooked covers of Codine and Donovan s To Try For The Sun, the album can now be seen as a fascinating signpost towards the emerging West Coast sound as, aided by the use of certain chemical substances, the LA folk-rock scene of the mid-1960s slid uneasily into psychedelic territory.

With a lavish 16-page booklet that includes rare photos and a new essay on the band, this Grapefruit label issue is the definitive release of a largely overlooked but pivotal folk-into-psych album.

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
