Shapes & Shadows – Psychedelic Pop And Other Rare Flavours From The Chapter One Vaults 1968-72

If the latter part of the 1960s is your bag music-wise, you might want to check out Shapes & Shadows – Psychedelic Pop And Other Rare Flavours From The Chapter One Vaults 1968-72.

It’s another Cherry Red collection, this one via the Grapefruit imprint and a single disc collection of 26 tracks. According to the write-up, the Chapter One label, founded by songwriter Les Reed in 1968, had a couple of minor hits, but is perhaps more interesting for its misses – music that is now in serious demand from collectors and has cropped up on compilations of late in bits and pieces.

Now there’s a dedicated set, taken from the masters and with the full co-operation of Les Reed and Chapter One. You can check out the tracklisting below, with the album released on 22nd September (but available to order now) for £10.99.
