SLAVE -The Lover, the Madman and the Poet (70s downer psych) LPSEELIE COURT
ABOUT SEELIE COURT
"British acetate and private pressing LPs dating from 1965-78, the most valuable LPs that exist. This is the third and fourth batch in an ongoing series of over 100 scheduled super rare and unknown archive recordings of British underground LPs. All have restored audio striking a balance between cleaning up often unique yet battered original recordings and retaining the power and authenticity of the original sounds without heavy compression. Restoration by Reynolds, at craftsman level. Priced as competitively as possible to allow street level access to thousand pound prog behemoths."
Slow, echo-laden and atmospheric, using a psyched out twangy guitar and Doors- esque vocals intoning strange and twisted tales: a depressed Jim Morrison colliding with Hank Marvin and Lord Byron in a sonic suicide pact of downer psych prog mystery.
A few sleeve-less copies of Slaves sole Deroy LP exist, but devoid of information and thus no one has been able to find out anything about the band.
Seelie Court believes it to be connected to 9.30 Fly but they deny involvement, although Barbara Wainwright did concede that "it does sound a bit like us. The Shadows on a bad acid trip? Its a love or hate LP that leaves some listeners awe-struck and others deeply confused.
