In 1969, Angel Pavement linchpin Alfie Shepherd took time out from the groups hectic schedule to demo a concept album that hed written around his favourite childhood story, Kenneth Grahames The Wind In The Willows. Sadly Angel Pavement broke up before theyd had a chance to record the work, which was duly left to gather dust. Forty years later, Alfies homemade recording of the proposed album finally gains a long-overdue release. Taken from the original mastertapes, and bolstered by a clutch of similarly unissued home demos from the same timeframe, The Wind In The Willows is now revealed as one of the great lost projects of the late 1960s, a thrilling psychedelic pop song-suite bursting with melodic invention, ambitious vocal arrangements and the boundless spirit of adventure that characterised the era.
In other words:
 Magnificent, previously unreleased English psychedelic pop concept album from 1969, based on the classic childrens story The Wind In The Willows, which also inspired Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd
 Written and recorded by Alfie Shepherd, leader of highly regarded baroque pop act Angel Pavement
 Re-mastered from the original mastertapes
Features ten bonus cuts, also previously unreleased, that were recorded around the same time
