Vinilisssimo present the first vinyl reissue of Graham Bond and Pete Brown's Two Heads Are Better Than One, originally released in 1972. Graham Bond and Pete Brown need little introduction. Bond was a key figure of the early British jazz and R&B scenes. His Graham Bond Organisation recorded several albums and the band's members (Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin and Dick Heckstall-Smith) achieved massive fame in their later careers. Pete Brown was a Cream/Jack Bruce collaborator. After being thrown out of his own band, Pete Brown & His Battered Ornaments, he formed another group: Piblokto! Dangerous habits, mental health issues and little commercial success seriously affected their careers on the verge of the '70s and a series of unfortunate events saw Graham Bond and Pete Brown finding themselves in limbo. They decided to team up for a new band project, resulting in the recording of Two Heads Are Better Than One in 1972. The album includes songs like "Lost Tribe" and "Looking For Time", both an attempt to express the fact that Pete and Graham were now on the outside of the rock scene in the early '70s, and "Ig The Pig", a dedication to a dubious record label head after the band found out their fee was not going to end in their bank account. Two Heads Are Better Than One is a brilliant multi-genre crossover celebration: bluesy rock with a funky twist and jazzy prog passages. It was Graham Bond's last album and probably his best work. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl.
