Release Date:06/09/2017;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing with new cover art including insert. Contains studio recordings from 1967 and 1968 taken from surviving tapes and acetates. Incredible sessions from the year of psychedelia's apex-gliding rhythms and softly pulsing melodies floating on a bed of organ and harmonium ('Out Of Sight' and 'Going With The Flow' in particular are especially delicious). Peter Dunton (drums/vocals), Bernard Jinks (bass) and Rod Harrison (guitar) (sometime members of Please and The Flies, and later in legendary-and suddenly very popular-band T2) plied their trade as Neon Pearl in Germany in the summer of 1967. After a few months playing to appreciative German audiences, they returned to England where a music publisher financed them to lay as many tracks to tape as they could within the few hours booked. The result is what we have here. Almost certainly the most spartan of Dunton-related material reissued thus far, but it doesn't suffer because of it, rather it gives it a feel all of it's own. Neon Pearl's album was never released at the time... but these recordings can be filed right next to those of the likes of Tomorrow, July, Forever Amber, The End, The Zombies' Odyssey & Oracle, and Blossom Toes. Peter Dunton later worked in The Flies, Gun, Please, Bulldog Breed and then in 1970 went on to form the superb T2. The first vinyl edition of the album was originally pressed in a tiny quantity and is now long sold out.
