Having made several classic 45s with The Soul Agents (whose singer was briefly Rod Stewart), Don Shinn taped his remarkable debut album in London’s Lansdowne Studios in December 1967. Featuring his explosive organ (a clear influence on the young Keith Emerson) and outstanding guitar from Paul Hodgeson, it’s one of the first progressive albums ever recorded, and has its first official reissue here, fifty years after its first release. It comes complete with detailed background notes, rare images and two jaw-dropping bonus tracks from 1966.
