• Widely acknowledged as a genuine UK baroque pop/ psychedelic folk classic, ‘Give Me Take You’ was a heavily sought-after Immediate Records album on the collectors’ circuit, with original copies selling for several hundred pounds.

• It has also attracted significant critical acclaim, being described by one monthly music magazine as “an English ‘Astral Weeks’.”, and regularly compared to such masterpieces as ‘The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society’, The Zombies’ ‘Odessey & Oracle’ and Nick Drake’s ‘Five Leaves Left’.

• Featuring full liner notes and rare photos/memorabilia, this definitive CD reissue adds 11 bonus tracks to the original stereo album, including mono single mixes, an aborted demo by Duncan Browne’s short-lived Summer-of-’67 flower power outfit Lorel and, perhaps most intriguingly of all, some fascinating pre-album rehearsal performances that are now being made available for the first time.

“My two biggest successes would have to be the Rolling Stones and the Small Faces; equally satisfying, but not as commercially successful, was Duncan Browne. Duncan was amazing…so talented. It may have said on the records ‘Produced by Andrew Loog Oldham’, but all I did was book the studio and watch the lad do his magic. And magic it was.” Andrew Oldham.
