Information

  • Format: CD
  • Label: Beat Goes On
  • Genre: Rock / Pop
  • Originally released in 1970 and 1971 respectively on the Vertigo ‘spiral’ label (Polydor’s progressive rock imprint). Original copies are extremely rare, commanding prices in the collectors’ market of over £100 (GBP) each.
  • Cressida were a British art rock band formed at the end of the 1960’s, with a sound not dissimilar to the Moody Blues. They combined a heavy organ and Mellotron sound (courtesy of keyboard player Peter Jennings) with vocalist Angus Cullen’s singing.
  • Their self-titled debut is filled with hauntingly beautiful melodies and straightforward, accessible song structures.
  • ’Asylum’ was produced by Australian Ossie Byrne, known for his production work on the first Bee Gees album.
  • After the band split, Ian Clark had a brief stay with Uriah Heep, and John Culley became a member of Black Widow.
  • Full sleevenote by Daryl Easlea
