Cat Nº: GUESSCD055
PSYCHEDELIC(60s-70s) / FOLK-ROCK (60s-70s)
The follow-up to our acclaimed “Flashback” (Guess110), finds Athanor (the duo formed by Greg Herriges and Rick Vittenson) digging deeper into their archives and coming out with and amazing set of previously unreleased recordings, done at their state-of-the-art home studio back at the time.
Captivating Beatle’esque, fuzzed-out psychedelia & folk-rock full of Lennon-esque vocals and 12-string Rickenbackers by ’70s Chicago wunderkind duo.
1973-1977 recordings plus one ’70s-era track cut in 2014 with Jeff Murphy (Shoes) on backup vocals.
Basement psych-pop and proto-power pop has rarely sounded better!
Remastered sound from the original tapes, booklet with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things/Got Kinda Lost) and Jeff Murphy (Shoes).
“…These aren’t longing, writing demos with tossed-off guide attempts, but instead full-form creations… The pulsating waves of snaking fuzz opening the set with “Love Shining” prepare you for the trip with an indelible riff, while moments of soul exorcism lay bare elsewhere” – Jeremy Cargill
