EGG DN 14 (-70) UK MONO

UK progressive band, largely influenced by art music. Advanced rythms, tempo changes and odd melodies performed with rock setting. They really know their stuff and everything is on the spot, still I'm not excited. A little too restrained for my taste. The mono is probably a fold down, but an ok one with big bass and fine balance. US issue on Deram (DES 18039).First UK had label as shown here and laminated cover. (Late addition - since I wrote this I've also found a UK stereo and compared the two. If you're interested check here http://monolover.blogspot.se/search?q=egg+dn ) (DÄN*)(UKÖ*)

  1. Nice one. This band earlier (in 1969) with Steve Hillage recorded fantastic album as Arzachel for Evolution.

  2. Thanks for the valuable information - I didn't connect them at all. The Arzachel album in original is one of my most wanted. There was recently a copy sold here for £800, so I guess it's out of the question. But one can always dream :)

  3. They used pseudonyms on Arzachel LP.
    Yes, UK version is expensive. Fortunately, there is US (Roulette) and German (Vogue) press. I think US press in good condition is about 150USD.
