Blossom Toes are well established as one of the UKs best-loved 60s psych bands, and this double CD set captures them at the height of their powers. Disc One was recorded live in Stockholms Filip Club on August 26th 1967, just after theyd completed their classic debut, We Are Ever So Clean. It finds the band poised between that albums cheery popsike and the dense progressive psychedelia of its follow-up, 1969s If Only For A Moment. Previously available only as an incomplete bootleg, it is mastered from original tapes supplied by the engineer who recorded it, Anders Lind. Disc Two kicks off with two rare tracks from 1967 radio sessions, then continues with two cuts apiece from the bands appearances at 1969s Amougies and Bilzen festivals - the latter boasting a guest appearance from none other than Frank Zappa. The set comes complete with a full booklet (including rare photos and an introduction from the bands leader, Brian Godding), making it essential for all fans of British psychedelia.
