Reissue for first time on CD of the lost 3rd album by this great '70's German outfit. It contains material from 1972 planned to be released as their 3rd album, but before a record deal took place the band split up. Musically in the vein of Phallobst'. 2 Long tracks over 12 minutes mixed with some shorter oriented tracks make this an great addition the bands other releases. CD comes with lots of bonus tracks and informative booklet
With both sides of their very obscure two non-LP, pre-first-LP 1969 singles (originally issued on the small Dublin label Song), as well as three tracks from a 1971 BBC session, this CD rounds up the most interesting Skid Row recordings not to appear on their albums. That doesn't mean, however, that these tracks are too impressive in their own right. The first of the singles, "New Places, Old Faces"/"Misdemeanour Dream Felicity," are primarily of interest for being the first official release to feature future Thin Lizzy mainstay Phil Lynott (who sings on the A-side, Gary Moore taking the lead on the flip). Lynott was out of the band by the time of the second 45, "Saturday Morning Man"/"Mervyn Aldridge," which like the first single was an unfocused mix of trendy late-'60s folk-rock, blues, and psychedelic influences.
