Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing – including two bonus tracks - housed in single tip-on linen paper sleeve. Includes four page insert with rare photos and extensive liner notes by Brian Young. Originally issued by Regal Zonophone in 1971, this highly sought after release has never been reissued on LP officially. The band's sound has been likened to that of the twin lead guitar style of Help Yourself/early Wishbone Ash with refined vocals. The songs are spiced with tasteful organ/piano and additional percussion throughout. The sole album from Scottish rock band Northwind reissued officially for the first time in over 40 years. The recording took place at Regent Sounds Studio in London where The Rolling Stones, The Yardbirds and Pink Floyd also recorded, as well as at equally renowned Sound Techniques studio, while the final process of acetate disc cutting was overseen at Apple Studio. However, this acetate disc and the final track list were dismissed by dropping two songs in the middle and adding three songs before the release. Since many fans considered that these progressive rock tinged left-out tracks should have been the cream of this album, they were featured in the ‘90s bootleg reissue, but with wrongly informed song titles taken from the beginning part of the lyrics written on the acetate version. This long-awaited official reissue includes these two tracks in fully restored versions with correct song titles ("Worlds Apart" and "The Candle Tree").
