Information

  • Format: LP
  • Label: Seelie Court
  • Genre: Psychedelic

The Seelie Court label features some the rarest, most sought after and most expensive British private pressings and acetates of progressive rock and folk rock from 1965-1978.

They are all vinyl 12” lps, textured covers, pressed by deepgrooves using environmental principles on presses powered by biomass consequently not shrinkwrapped to avoid unnecessary toxic plastic waste.

Seelie Court is a new archival record label with a repertoire of over 50 lps already lined up for release, most are sourced from a private collection of super rare and often completely unknown british acetate and private pressing lps dating from 1965-1978, the most valuable lps that exist. LPs like anaconda (post Arcadium) and Barney James (technically a 3rd Warhorse lp) are undocumented and have been kept in a black box for decades the label will issue progressive rock and folk rock 1965-1978 and post punk/new wave 1976-1982 on a sub label.

Audio restoration is by Reynolds Mastering, England. engineered and restored by an industry genius who specialises in complex restoration techniques utilising pure craftsmanship acquired from decades of experience, Reynolds projects range from restoring delicate decca classical recordings to 30 cd wishbone ash box sets, using a treasure trove of invaluable ex BBC studios analogue equipment and the latest digital to work sonic miracles

SANDALWOOD is an utterly beguiling folk rock trio with two beautiful girls at the helm writing and singing mesmerising faeirie-like folk rock, only clive the bassist could be found, the two girls vanished in 1971 after making the lp and abandoning music to start families, clive has not heard from them since the moment they gave him his 3 copies of the 50 copy srt pressing in a folk club that night in ‘71. tracks like “sleepy rain” and “changeling” are understated and gorgeous, with insistent and addictive guitar strumming under gentle sandy denny-esque vocals. The whereabouts of the girls remains a mystery and the lp is issued with clive the bassist’s blessing.

Only 50 were made, not 99, and the lp is extremely rare, every copy was given away to friends, the originals are valued at £2000-4000
