The Hook appeared in the iconic TV cop show, Ironside, in the episode A Trip to Hashbury, performing the mind-bending acid-rock anthems ‘Son of Fantasy’ and ‘Plug Your Head In’, both of which feature on this collection.
Signed to the hip UNI label, they released two albums of heavy psychedelic blues rock, similar to that of Cream and Jimi Hendrix. The addition of keyboards made their second album reminiscent of The Doors and Iron Butterfly.
For the first time, both Hook albums from 1968/1969 are married on one CD, complete with a detailed history featuring quotes by band members, illustrated with a multitude of rare photographs and posters. Prepare to get hooked by The Hook!
