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.

This album was cut in Northampton’s Beck studios circa 1969 and thought to be connected to Axe’s lead guitarist, this band remain completely unknown - only one battered acetate exists which has been held in a private collection for decades, it has track titles but no band name, with all research drawing blanks.
Regardless, this is arguably the finest example of blistering undergound heavy prog jamming ever graven in acetate or vinyl. And the band are at the top of their game, not a dodgy private press, it’s the real mc coy, a band that’s honed a perfect organic sound, with fantastic interplay, male and female vocal leads, and a guitarist completely on fire, possibly Axe’s Anthony Barford (rip) as theorised by Dark’s Steve Giles...we can’t be sure. Just 4 long tracks, 24 mins, if you like Heep, May Blitz, and a touch of Jefferson Airplane, you need this. And the final track is a space ballad with the girl on lead vocal, and she outclasses Grace Slick and Julie Driscoll. Fact. Ranks with Dark. Valued in excess of £10,000
