Hapshash & The Coloured Coat-Western Flier ,LP,1969,UK

The talents of Groundhogs guitarist T.S. McPhee and songwriter Mike Batt can be heard on this 'strange' LP, the second and final release from Hapshash. The ultra rare 'Colinda' single is included amongst the 10 featured tracks. Contrary to the first album, which mainly consisted of free music, lyric poetry, Gregorean chants and Andalusian/oriental folk music, Western Flier was a crazy, high-spirited collection of old, well known folk-rock and blues material, spiced with all such currently used, individually distorted studio effects such as fuzz, feedback, phasing, etc.
Simply one of the best psych/bluesy/freaked out LPs that came out in the late 60s in UK.
A classic!
