~*~ Mk2 version, carefully remastered fixing various issues, with differential EQ & NO NR ~*~

01. Spanish OD
02. They've Started Complaining

Total Time ::: 9:44

::: EX- radio studio recording. Check samples for rejection, inspection, outright impatience.
::: Warts: Repaired dullspots & dropouts but surely missed a few. Mk1 version somewhat muffled & canned sounding (both fixed in the Mk2).
::: CONTRAST CLAUSE: This is MUCH crisper Mk2 EQ'd w/no NR remaster. The muffled Mk1 NO EQorNR remaster may be found elsewhere.
::: Mk1+Mk2 COMPARISON: Differential EQ paid off BIG here, Mk2 FAR better & more natural sounding than the muffled Mk1.
::: 1971-01-14 was the recording date. Programme broadcast 1971-02-05. Alan Black was the moderator.
::: 4 track session. "Boat In The Morning Mist"&"Best Suit"missing from this source. Can anyone provide them &/or upgrade these?
::: This is a LOSSLESS version of this source for this recording, obtained from the taper.

DimeTravel 870 ::: MANY thanks to the original taper, Ace Rimmer. Thanks to DIMER Les_Mountain for not only providing the gooods, but doing the uploading efforts after remastering! ::: Corrections welcome ::: Still a mystery why the band's first released outing, "A=MH²" (1969 Decca Nova), didn't re-write the musical universe in terms of sales upon its release, but perhaps the sea was too deep for land creatures. "Retribution"(2nd) & "Gestalt" (3rd) are fascinating as well & you'd be well-advised to delve into them posthaste, whether revisiting or diving in with newfound fanaticism. Not to forget the posthumous (band-wise, that is) "Blues" album which is ostensibly their first (recorded Mar'69) & remained unissued until Little Wing Of Refugees flogged it limited edition style on CD&LP in '94. I recall it as somewhat less experimental than their other efforts. Les_Mountain is a C-H major fan & did the heavy lifting tracking down lossless versions of these 2 songs. We are extremely fortunate they are the unissued songs of the session - neither of them has ever appeared officially on any C-H release, AFAIK. "Spanish OD" is a classy ragapsych number & "They've Started Complaining" is a stunner - fine vocal work with an extended, heavy, outstanding, RIPPIN' guitar workout that should put most any head's head in gear & ends in serious dimentia. You couldn't ask for more for out of only 2 songs - a great addition to the C-H canon. It would be GREATLY appreciated were someone to come forth with more live/unissued material by this group, regardless of quality. Inquiring ears NEED to hear. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees

Support the artists! assorted CD reissues available including a 2CD collection on Esoteric.

Do whatever you want with it except sell it, 'cause that ain't cool!
