UK, 1974

Many people watching the ebay auctions where surprised seeing this album selling for the past few month 3 times for nearly 3500 Euro each. Before that, this album was completely unknown.

Captain Marryat are from Glasgow, Scotland and recorded this demo album in 1974, released in a tiny pressing on the Thor label, in the hope to get an EMI or Chrysalis deal.

They wanted to record only a single but came up with a complete album of self-composed tracks. Since it was not that easy for a Scottish band to get attention down in London, this album was the only pressing ever done and sold at band gigs only.

5 musicians, great organ, vocals, extra heavy fuzz-guitar, drums and bass, amazing underground songs, influenced by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Beggars Opera, a true lost classic.

We were lucky to find the band to made a deal so this beauty can conquer the world of rock music.
