SPECIAL OFFER! Another hidden gem from the Saga budget catalogue is unearthed. Katch 22 were a bunch of young boys that produced the UK answer to the US soft-rock scene. It is ironic that a UK band can be so influenced by those US bands that were most highly under the influence of British popsike! Think of Harper's Bizarre, The Association, The Millenium or Eternity's Children even higher on tea! A surprisingly good production for a Saga pop/psych LP, the album is built up of excellent cover versions of some greats of the genre, paying tribute to the likes of The Left Banke ('Walk Away Rene'), Simon & Garfunkel / Harper's Bizarre ('Feelin' Groovy') or even Buffalo Springfield ('Go And Say Goodbye') and also of some good originals in the same vein. It is certainly an underrated period piece that deserves wider recognition and a great sounding album of orchestrated (and non orchestrated) pop sounds. The album was originally issued on Saga/Eros subsidiary in 1968, and the Wah Wah-reissue respects the colourful sleeve and reprints the original insert, with sound remastered from the original tapes by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering. Offered in a limited 500 copies only edition!
