Birmingham's Fairfield Ski are one of the greatest lost UK psych/prog bands ever. With a line-up which included ex-Terry Reid's band Bill Bonham (cousin of Led Zepp's John Bonham) on keyboards, their only recorded legacy is one of the rarest artifacts from the first UK psych-prog era: only 3 copies are known to exist of the Fairfield Ski acetate album, recorded in 1973 at top London studios such as Trident, Abbey Road and Apple. A perfectly played and professionally produced record which ranges from full-blown psychedelia to glam, hard-rock, progressive-pop and dreamy psych. Echoes of Forever Amber, Five Day Rain, Octopus, Deep Purple, Procol Harum, 'Abbey Road'-era Beatles and Appletree Theatre can be heard on the grooves of this lost classic. Fantastic remastered sound restored from the original acetate using state-of-the-art equipment
Insert with rare pictures and detailed liner notes by Andy Morten (Shindig!) revealing the Fairfield Ski story for the first time.

Also available: FAIRFIELD SKI (CD).
