  • Genre: Psychedelic
Intense and serious, with fiery fuzz guitar lending a most unusualedge to what is ostensibly a folk record" - Record Collector"The LP has an admirable array of textures, adding some heavilydistorted electric guitar and orchestration around an acoustic guitarbase" - Allmusic GuideLong established as a cult classic and collector's grail, MickBurgoyne and Leigh Dolphin's sole album is presented here withtheir full co-operation. Recorded in 1971 when they were justnineteen and fresh to the studio, Fresh Maggots is one of the bestdistillations of folk and psychedelia ever recorded. Varying in tonefrom heavy rock ('Frustration') to protest ('Everybody's Gone ToWar'), social commentary ('Dole Song') and pastoral ('Rosemary Hill'),it's a highly unusual and powerful record that enjoyed extravagantacclaim on release but sold poorly and has never been officiallyissued since. Original pressings are notoriously badly pressed, sothis reissue is sure to be rapturously welcomed by all lovers of acidfolk.* Top ten 'strange folk' classics - Record Collector, April 2005* Fully licensed from the band* vinyl mastering by Nick Webb at Abbey Road Studios* 1000 copies only* pressed on 180g vinyl at EMI's former pressing plant in HayesSide 11.
