Precious Seconds Thought Gone From The British Underground 1967 - 1970. Top Sounds' fifth compilation continues with the label's favourite theme of rare BBC session tracks, but Look At The Sun also features a significant proportion of acetates - all previously unreleased - recorded by some of the decade's most obscure happening groups. Genuine hardcore unreleased British psych is a rare beast indeed these days but Top Sounds believe they have found some with two late 1967 tracks by LOUISE, who played clubs such as Happening 44 and were most definitely the real deal as far as British psychedelia was concerned. Psych pop heroes KALEIDOSCOPE return with a newly discovered and much improved BBC version of 'Faintly Blowing' from 1967, together with a thought lost performance from the same session of 'The Murder Of Lewis Tollani'. Portsmouth psychsters COCONUT MUSHROOM offer excellent fuzzy pop in 'without You', then crank up the volume with a sledgehammer version of the Who's 'Call Me Lightning'. Top of many fans wants lists are new tracks by the FLEUR DE LYS, and unbelievably a cracking version of Albert King's Cross Cut Saw' from a '67 BBC session has been found for Look At The Sun. Rare BBC performances by ELMER GANTRY'S VELVET OPERA have also been located and two of the best tracks from Wooden Hill's ONYX CD make their first appearance on vinyl. Infamous for their classic goes It Really Matter' and the fact that no-one had a clue who they were, the GLASS OPENING feature with not only that great B'side but also three other corkers cut onto acetates during 1968. GRADED GRAINS reappear with an excellent take on etter By You, Better Than Me', nestling closely to Andy Scott blasting out heavy prog pop riffs with the ELASTIC BAND on a previously unknown version of 'Uptown, Downtown'. And closing almost an hour's worth of music on a bonus 45 are two BBC performances by the venerable T2, one of which incredibly is an audio recording of their only television appearance! Supplied with the obligatory 16 page booklet, (the CD will have a 32 page book), the vinyl version of Look At The Sun is now available, whilst the CD edition will arrive in early August.
