Catalog no.: SVVRCH0000060

Item ID: 521416

Reissue of 1969 album. Following the breakup of Cream, lyricist/vocalist Pete Brown formed his Battered Ornaments with guitarist Chris Spedding, drummer Rob Tait, bassist Butch Potter, percussionist Pete Bailey and saxophonist Nisar Ahmed Khan, but during the recording of sophomore album 'Mantle-Piece,' Brown fell out with Spedding, resulting in his departure. The resultant spacey venture has jazz and blues shades, riding the sonic waves under Spedding's direction, with Khan's sax and Potter's bass fitting foils to Spedding's guitar and keyboards. This is another great piece of the Spedding puzzle, with pleasantly meandering interludes.

Also available: MANTLE-PIECE (IT/BLACK) (LP).
