Rockfield Sessions on LP

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing comes in a heavy sleeve with a two-page insert. Shadoks Music presents Writing on the Wall's The Rockfield Sessions, recorded in 1973. Writing on the Wall were a Scottish psychedelic/progressive rock band from active 1967 to 1973. Continually on the road for six years - everything from radio, TV, British and European tours - Writing on the Wall were one of the very few bands to have held two residencies at the famous Marquee Club in London. The band issued only one official studio album, The Power of the Picts (1969). Like many evolving groups caught in the midst of rapid musical evolution in the late sixties, Writing on the Wall retained much of the blues influence which they mixed with a heavy and sometimes uneven blend of psych. They had idealistic and often abstract lyrics reminiscent of groups like Blues Image, Cactus and Babe Ruth. Writing's music tended toward a more somber tone than most of their peers, and the band further distinguished themselves by relocating to England to make somewhat of an impression on the British scene of that day. The band recorded for DJ John Peel in late 1968, and released their sole album on Brian Waldman's fledging Middle Earth label. Waldman also served as the band's manager, and secured them gigs in his club, also named Middle Earth. The Rockfield Session where recorded in 1973 with a new guitarist/singer and saxophone player. Jimmy Hush, the original Writing on the Wall drummer, located the master tapes and mixed them for the first time.
