HATFIELD & THE NORTH - HATFIELD & THE NORTH (VIRGIN 1974) Jap mastering cardboard sleeve + 3 bonus




Hatfield and the North were the supergroup of England's Canterbury progressive rock scene, with bassist and vocalist Richard Sinclair from Caravan, guitarist Phil Miller from Matching Mole, keyboardist Dave Stewart from Egg, and drummer Pip Pyle from Gong and Delivery. This brilliant and inventive debut album is a cross between sophisticated, precisely executed jazz-rock and dry-humored, often surreal pop. The album consists of short pieces blended into a Zappa-like collage, providing a thematic work that bests even the most eccentric jazz-rock by bands like Soft Machine.[allmusic]

Awesome album, I too agree--took longer than other Canterbury discs to grow on me, but it's just as much of a favorite these days! Just wrote about it too on my blog.
