Specification

Remastered from original tapes with 11 previously unreleased bonus tracks.

The Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie - cousins Francesca Garnett and Lisa Bankoff rubbed shoulders with them all in the late 1960’s, and perhaps it should come as no surprise that a little stardust rubbed off on the two girls.

Musically ambitious, they came close to being signed to the Beatles’ Apple label (although John, Paul and Ringo were in favour, George passed, thus vetoing the deal) before being taken under the wing of Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and signing to Monty Babson’s fl edgling Morgan Bluetown label.

Morgan Bluetown was a side project to the Morgan Music studio, which in the late 1960’s was one of the UK’s top studios, attracting in 1969 alone the likes of Led Zeppelin (“Led Zeppelin II”), Free (“Tons of Sobs” and “Free”), and Jethro Tull (“Stand Up”).

Originally recorded in 1969 & 1970. Guest musicians on this set were future Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Weston, Pink Floyd members Nick Mason (who partly produced also) and Rick Wright.

The band itself was a two girl output consisting of Francesca Garnett and Lisa Bankoff . As for the music, hard to describe - at times folky and dreamy and can bounce to a dark, spacy with hints of acid rock as crazy as they come.

Remastered from original tapes with 11 previously unreleased bonus tracks.
