Compiled by Stefan Granados (Shindig) with trades drawn from the ever expanding UK "heritage" Angel Air label who since their inception in 1997. have developed a catalogue of much sort after original recordings from the 60's to 21st Century with new additions for this compilation supplied courtesy of Phillip Goodhand-Toit (CIRCUS) and Mike Hurst (DOUBLE FEATURE).
This release focus on tracks drawn from the classic popular music years 1965 to 1970 and the album opens with "Walkin.Walkin" n freak beat classic written and produced by Mike Hurst in 1965, moves to The TREACLE from Hull featuring one MICK RONSON who recorded in 1965 "Stop Get A Hold Of Yourself and finally to ATOMIC ROOSTER'S original demo of their anthem "Devils Answer" recorded in 1970. Classic tacks from a Classic Label.

Since its inception in 1997, Peter Purnell's Angel Air Records, based out of Stowmarket, Suffolk, England, has specialized in a catalog of often rare and all but lost releases from the 1960s, giving each the full reissue treatment with extensive documentation and input plus participation from the original artists, making each Angel Air release truly something special. This set, which features classic but seldom-heard tracks recorded between 1965 and 1970 by bands like the Treacle, the Rats, Circus, Andromeda, Family, and Atomic Rooster, among others, functions as a sort of sampler of the full-length sets Angel Air has released by these artists, but it also works as an interesting glimpse of an era in rock history that is now gone forever -- but not forgotten, thanks to collections like this one. ~ Steve Leggett

Among its irrepressible stream of half-forgotten rock dreamers, Angel Air has built a sturdy catalogue of lesser-known psych and 60s pop, from which this 21-track collection compiled by Stefan Granados is drawn. Some names will be familiar: Atomic Rooster are represented by their Devil’s Answer demo and The Family with The Weaver’s Answer from their Family Entertainment peak. Others might be hazily recalled from Peel shows and the late 60s club circuit.
Psych devotees will revel in the Misunderstood-style lysergic symphonies of Andromeda, who rose out of The Attack around 1969, or lesser-known Deram-Immediate outfit The Outer Limits, who nod at the Pretty Things’ SF Sorrow with Epitaph Of A Non- Entity. Also present in their period finery are the likes of Ice, Affinity (tackling I Am The Walrus), Procol Harum refugees Freedom, Jess Roden-fronted The Alan Bown! with a feisty horns-dominated treatment of All Along The Watchtower (before Hendrix) and later solo artist Philip Goodhand-Tait with his Stormsville Shakers then Circus (the fragile title track a Peel fave).
Particularly intriguing are Mick Ronson’s pre-Spiders psych forays with The Treacle and The Rats, whose Eleanor Rigbyinfluenced The Rise & Fall Of Bernie Gripplestone is a minor classic, Ronno steering his Les Paul into the cosmos over reversed drumming.
