MANTIS - ST (Obscure 70s prog rock) CD
Seelie Court is an English label releasing archival recordings from the period 1965 to 1978 by British and Irish artists. Most of the releases are saved from unique sources and have not been previously issued.
Dominated by Hendrix-esque lead guitar and powerful bass and drums, the original LP was privately issued in a plain white sleeve in 1973 apparently in 99 copies, and now finally sees a reissue.
Legendary heavy progressive rock concept album that includes the epic side long 'Child Of Nations' suite, and unlike many anti-war songs band leader Dave Ellis had direct experience of the subject having been on active service with the British Army in the Far East.
