ARTHUR - IN SEARCH OF 1968 / 1969

Psychedelic/acid folk masterpiece from the North. This first ever official release includes his complete demo LP,unreleased sessions and a mega rare 45. The music can be described as a mixture of Perry Leopold, William C.Beeley and early Pink Floyd (his 45 is particularly trippy and phased into weirdness).The album is cetainly one of the top five best ever LP's in the US acid folk/singer songwriter genre! Arthur was a Canadian musician who recorded this unique masterpiece as a demo-only one sided album on the "Two Dot" label in Colorado in 1969. Only a hand full of demo copies were released and sent out to labels to get a record deal. Later he signed with Tumbleweed Records and released two albums as Arthur Gee. Simply a record for the Isle, and housed in one of the best hippie psychedelic covers ever...Pressed on heavy audiophile vinyl, ultra heavy old style cardboard with stunning paste-on sleeve and full colour insert. A beauty.
