LP 400 numbered / heavy sleeve / 180 gram pressing colored vinyl (transparent white) / 2 page insert
One of our best selling albums comes again on vinyl. First reissued in 2010 as a black vinyl edition and in 2013 as a colored vinyl edition of 200 records, here is the clear vinyl edition with a color photo on the front (which just has been found).
On ebay auctions we where surprised seeing this album selling for the past few month for nearly 3500 Euro each. Before that, this album was completely unknown. Captain Marryat are from Glasgow, Scotland and recorded this demo album in 1974, released in a tiny pressing on the Thor label, hopefully to get an EMI or Chrysalis deal. They wanted to record only a single but came up with a complete album of self-composed tracks. Since it was not that easy for a Scottish band to get attention down in London, this album was the only pressing ever done and sold at band gigs only. 5 musicians, great organ, vocals, extra heavy fuzz-guitar, drums and bass, amazing underground songs, influenced by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Beggars Opera, a true lost classic.
Where where lucky to find the band to made a deal so this beauty can conquer the world of rock music
