Catalog no.: CDWIKD0000298

Item ID: 363369

The first ever official CD reissue of The Rational's highly ragarded s/t LP from 1970. The rationals, featuring cult hero Scott Morgan on guitar an vocals, played an exciting blend of rock and R&B, absorbing along the way the heavier influences of the scene surrounding the legendary Grande Ballroom in Detroit. The result was the classic 1969 single 'Guitar Army' and the -here reissued- long overdue full album on the Crewe label, the soulful contents of which demonstrated the breadth of the group's talents. This reissue adds the rare single versions of 'Guitar Army' and 'Sunset' plus two previously unissued tracks, including an amazing live-in-the-studio take of 'Wang Dang Doodle'.
