Due 10/11...Fantastic concept LP released in 1970 and masterminded by producer Mark Wirtz together with Maria Feltham, who wrote most of the songs. Its wonderfully arranged sound gravitates towards varied influences: folk-pop, soft psych, chamber pop, late 60s rock…

The featured vocalists and musicians include John Carter (The Flower Pot Men), Roger Greenaway, Peter Lee Stirling and Chris Spedding, among other talented artists.

Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180g vinyl.

During the 60s Mark Wirtz was an in-house producer for EMI, working on the Studio 2 series. The next milestones in his career were "A Teenage Opera", a musical project that was never released as an entire work, and producing Tomorrow's self-titled debut LP, a psychedelic masterpiece.

In 1969 Mark resigned from his post at EMI Records to return to independent production and approached Les Reed's Chapter One label for the release of his new Philwit & Pegasus project, recorded by a group of musicians that includes John Carter (The Flower Pot Men), Roger Greenaway or Peter Lee Stirling on vocals, and Chris Spedding on guitar, among other talented artists. The album starts with 'Happiness', featuring incredible vocal harmonies, followed by the outstanding 'Yoyo Thoughts', a folk-pop delight, but half way through it we reach some of the strongest songs on the LP: the energetic 'My What a Lovely Day It's Been', 'Lonely Flower' and 'Spinning Carousel', which echo The Beach Boys and Love and create an intimate yet vaporous vibe.

Fans of sunshine and chamber pop coupled with memorable songwriting will be enthralled by this album.
