Product Description

Cherry Red’s dedicated UK psych imprint Grapefruit is proud to announce
the release in October of the 3CD anthology Love, Poetry and Revolution:
a journey through the British psychedelic and underground scenes
1966-1972. · Housed in a clambox with a lavishly annotated and
illustrated 36 page booklet, this important release features much rare
material, including previously unissued demo recordings by Tintern Abbey
and Blossom Toes.

Various heavyweight underground bands (The Crazy World Of Arthur
Brown, Hawkwind, The Deviants, etc) rub shoulders with acts who recorded
some of the rarest, most valuable albums of the era (Forever Amber,
Complex, Peter Howell & John Ferdinando), while the box also
includes a number of subterranean bands – Middle Earth regulars Jade
Hexagram, Neon Pearl, Respect and others – who failed to release
anything during their lifetime. ·

Embracing psychedelic pop (The Mirage, Jason Crest, Shy Limbs,
Crocheted Doughnut Ring etc), the burgeoning progressive rock scene (T2,
Czar, Fat Mattress) and acid folk (the likes of Simon Finn and Mark
Fry), Love, Poetry and Revolution draws on a number of catalogues,
including Beacon (The Fut, Information, pre-Damned act Taiconderoga),
the Vic Keary stable and various collector labels (Sunbeam, Acme, Tenth
Planet/Wooden Hill) to give a fascinating, all-embracing overview of
what was a tumultuous few years in British pop/rock history.
