The End - From Beginning To End

In 1965 The End arose from the glowing embers of the earlier Tuxedos, Innocents and Original Topics, and like many of their contemporaries evolved into a psychedelic group. Along the way, they won the support and patronage of the Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman, who produced their sole album for Decca, “Introspection” (CD2). He also co-wrote their signature tune, the psychedelic classic “Shades Of Orange”, although the band wrote the rest of their material.

This 4 CD clamshell box set gathers together all of The End’s extant recordings, the material on CDs 1, 3, and 4 having only previously been released on vinyl in the ‘90s.

CD 1 covers the early days from 1964 to 1967, CD 2 is the 1968 “Introspection” album with two bonus tracks, CD 3 features outtakes (including four previously unreleased bonus tracks) from the period 1968/69, while CD 4 rounds up the band’s recordings from 1969/70, before they reinvented themselves as Tucky Buzzard.

This box set also contains a booklet with artwork by legendary designer Phil Smee, including photos and ephemera, a note by founder member Colin Giffin, and the band’s comprehensive story written by David Wells.
