wooden lion Wooden Lion (CD, £7.75)label: Audio Archives
The very rarest previously unreleased heavy psych album from the early 70s UK Underground by the original five-piece band. Painstakingly remastered from the only surviving acetate, they don’t come any rarer than this. Long, tripped-out tracks with early Hawkwind feel toughened by dark vocals that combine to make this a cosmic-doom classic. Highlights include the atmospheric ‘Ice Maiden’, the spaced-out ‘She Paints Strange Pictures’ and their notorious tour de force, the lengthy three-part ‘McAlistaires’s Phantoms’. Plenty of rare band shots, items of memorabilia and detailed sleeve notes included in this long lost forgotten classic.
