T 2 - It'll All Work Out In Boomland ( UK Heavy Psych Prog 1970 )

Prog rock has perhaps more 'lost treasures' than any other genre in rock. By and large, this seems to have been due to slightly over zealous record labels that emerged at a rate of knots to try and catch the 'progressive' zeitgeist at the time. Hundreds of bands were signed to labels like RCA Neon, Deram, Dawn and Harvest, but most of them crashed and burned, hardly remembered. Many don't seem to have been given a fair crack of the whip, as these bands seem to have done one album before being dropped. T2 are one of these bands, despite some underpromoted comebacks over the years. Naturally, 'It'll All Work Out In Boomland', their only album from the time, now commands vast amounts on the 2nd hand vinyl market, but to these ears stands out as one of THE genuinely progressive rock albums as it sounds totally unlike any other band out there at the time, but also none since.
This is a classic album. A true must-have LP.
