Day Of The Fox / In Flight - Design

Day Of The Fox / In Flight
Tripping the light fantastic of breezy west coast harmony pop mixed with atmospheric melodic folk pop. Here are the third and fourth LPs by the UK six piece vocal group whose sound was described as the perfect musical accompaniment to a garden party in the blazing sunshine . In the UK the group were contemporary rivals to The New Seekers and Arrival.

They recorded five LPs and 13 singles between 1970-1976. For the third and fourth LPs more of the groups own compositions were recorded exhibiting a slightly heavier edge in places than before, such as on Pisces Hymn. In the studio the group were augmented by the cream of UK session musicians Chris Spedding, Herbie Flowers, Roger Coulam, Barry Morgan, and overseen by Adrian Kerridge .

None of the recordings have ever been reissued or on CD, in the main because the copyrights were hidden away in an independent company which dissolved. There has meanwhile been plenty of interest with tracks appearing on several bootleg compilations and download sites.

Further to this recent exposure and profile raising has come from the worldwide release of several DVD compilations of 70’s TV shows from Morecambe & Wise, The Two Ronnies, Tommy Cooper, and more, all featuring appearances by Design.

Design / Tomorrow Is So Far Away
Shimmering sunshine pop harmonies with a folk and hippy psychedelic twist. Here are the first and second LPs from the UK six piece boy/girl vocal group who came closest to the US Fifth Dimension. Other musical comparisons at the time were also made to Free Design, Mamas and Papas and The Groop.

They recorded five LPs and 13 singles between 1970-1976. The first LP was released in the US first giving them early international profile. None of the recordings have ever been reissued or on CD, in the main because the copyrights were hidden away in an independent company which dissolved. There has meanwhile been plenty of interest with tracks appearing on several bootleg compilations and download sites. (e.g. Minst rel’s Theme appeared on Fading Yellow Vol.5 .)

Further to this recent exposure and profile raising has come from the worldwide release of several DVD compilations of 70’s TV shows from Morecambe & Wise, The Two Ronnies, Tommy Cooper, and more, all featuring appearances by Design.
