CAPTAIN MARRYAT - "Captain Marryat" (2009 Shadoks Reissue)

Still sealed exemplary (Shadoks reissue) of this monster heavy prog rarity !

Captain Marryat are from Glasgow, Scotland and recorded this demo album in 1974, released in a tiny pressing on the Thor label, hopefully to get an EMI or Chrysalis deal.
They wanted to record only a single but came up with a complete album of self-composed tracks.

Since it was not that easy for a Scottish band to get attention down in London, this album was the only pressing ever done and sold at band gigs only.
5 musicians, great organ, vocals, extra heavy fuzz-guitar, drums and bass, amazing underground songs, influenced by Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Beggars Opera, a true lost classic. 

Record : Still Sealed
Cover : Excellent (Still Sealed)
Price : 120,00 Euros (+ expedition costs calculated by the Belgian Post office)
Payment : PAYPAL only
