Bodkin (West CSA 104) 1972
(reissued on vinyl - Akarma AK 125 LP, CD - AK 125).
This privately-pressed early seventies collectable now changes hands for substantive sums. The band were Scottish and the album consists of five extended tracks of superb heavy organs and guitar work. Originally issued in a plain white sleeve, unsold copies were according to 'Record Collector' acquired by a German dealer a few years back who designed a new sleeve to enhance the album's appeal. Recommended.
