60's Psychedelic Baroque Pop Ice - Ice Man '67 - '68 Complete Recordings (2005)
UK psychedelic pop quintet formed in the mid-60s while John Carter
(bass), Glyn James (vocals), Lynton Naiff (organ), Grant Serpell (drums)
and Steve Turner (guitar) were attending Sussex University in Brighton,
Sussex, England. Their debut single, ‘Anniversary (Of Love)’, was
released in 1967 after the group signed a recording contract with Decca
Records. The single revealed a band clearly in the thralls of a Procol
Harum fixation, with its layered keyboards and nostalgic lyrics.
second single followed a year later, but ‘Ice Man’ also failed to
impress commercially. Both singles have been compiled on numerous
psychedelic compilations. The band was later joined by expressive
vocalist Linda Hoyle and pursued a jazz rock direction under the new
name of Affinity. Serpell was later a founder member of Sailor.
This is a very nice album of psychedelic baroque pop. Hope you enjoy.
(By the way: I hated and still hate Sailor. I'm NOT kidding lol)
