The house at windy corner
Formed in Amsterdam in the late 60s, Windy Corner were a psychedelic folk-rock band who rarely played live. Using self-made instruments and amplifiers, they recorded long sessions at their rehearsal space in a cottage. In 1973, they released their first album, “The House At Windy Corner”, a 100 copies custom pressing on the collectable Deroy label.
Underground progressive / psychedelic folk-rock with charming home-made sound and fragile atmosphere. Dreamy vocals, organ, acoustic / electric guitars, bass and drums, similar at times to other obscure lo-fi psych bands like A-Austr or Ithaca, Agincourt…
First ever reissue. Remastered sound, original artwork, insert with liner notes and rare photos.
Rated with the maximum rarity on the “2001 Record Collector Dreams” book by Hans Pokora.
“…Something of an enigma in the collector’s circle, their ambitious and intricate long instrumental passages remind me of the British underground group Sindelfingen and the more understated and meditative improvisations of the San Francisco-bands Mad River (first album) and Grateful Dead (1968-70). Windy Corner’s home recordings were generally quite strange and highly rewarding…” – Dag Erik Asbjornsen, Scented Gardens Of The Mind
