Obscure prog rockers Second Hand began as the Next Collection, formed at a south London secondary school; engineer/manager Vic Keary scored them a contract with Polydor as the Moving Finger, but their legendary debut LP was credited to Second Hand, due to a rival Moving Finger. Channelling psych and spacey acid hues, there is blues-rock underpinning Bob Gibbons’ guitar and keyboardist Ken Elliott helps aim the sound towards deep space; this edition features RARE TRACKS ‘JAMES IN THE BASEMENT’ and ‘I AM NEARLY THERE’ from a 1965 Next Collection single (backing Denis Couldry), already showing their freak-psych capabilities. An essential listen for all true prog connoisseurs!
