We are very proud to present the first ever reissue of this lost treasure, originally an obscure private pressing of just 100 copies. Gigymen were a college circuit band from Cambridge who in 1974 recorded their only album at Spaceward Studios. Stunning folk- rock / folk- pop with pro- recorded sound, superb musicianship and strong songwriting.
With influences ranging from Fairport Convention to The Beatles, here you'll find some superb folk- rock adaptations of traditional songs such like '' As I roved out'' , '' Gypsy Laddie'' and '' Rocky Road to Dublin'' along with fab folk- pop with Beatlesque vocals on tracks like '' Plain Jane'' or '' Gone are the days'' .
The album was originally released with only a blank paper sheet with the credits on the cover so we've designed a new front sleeve for our reissue. Insert with rare pictures and detailed liner notes is also included.
Remastered in 24- bit domain from the original master tapes, 180gr vinyl.
Tracklist: As I roved out – Gone are the days – Plain Jane – Gypsy laddie – Rocky road to Dublin – Brother Herbert – Crumbledown – Don’t let her go
