•    Brummie rock band THE EXCEPTION were formed in 1967 by ex-members of The Ugly’s, Dave Pegg and Roger Hill, and talented drummer/writer/vocalist Alan James ‘Bugsy’ Eastwood.

•    Between 1967 and 1969, THE EXCEPTION issued several singles for CBS and President, as well as a rare album, The Exceptional Exception, which has never been on CD in the UK.

•    This welcome compilation boasts numerous bonus tracks new to CD, culled from various non-albums singles on President and five previously unissued demos fresh from the vaults.

•    The band’s debut single, ‘The Eagle Flies On Friday’, is now a collectable Mod anthem. It’s joined here by all their other three CBS sides.

•    The Exception’s original bassist Dave Pegg and  guitarist Roger Hill later joined Fairport Convention (Pegg also played with Jethro Tull).

NB: This title is released on October 27, 2014 and will not be dispatched until this date.
