First-ever vinyl release of the long rumored 1969 studio album (plus related acetate and 45 only tracks) from pre-Hotlegs/10cc duo Godley & Creme, during their days as Frabjoy & Runcible Spoon. Classic UK late '60s psychedelic/folk/pop sound recorded at Advision Studios with support from future 10cc colleagues Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart. In mid-1969, legendary British R&B/psychedelic entrepreneur Giorgio Gomelsky signed two Manchester-based art students, renaming them Frabjoy & Runcible Spoon. Envisaging the pair as a British Simon & Garfunkel, Gomelsky recorded an LP with them for release on his Marmalade label. A pre-LP single appeared, but sadly the album's release was aborted. 53 years later, Grapefruit Records released on CD this missing piece of the pre-10cc jigsaw puzzle. Now we're lucky to present a vinyl version. Includes insert with liner notes by David Wells and rare photos/memorabilia. Recommended if you like Pete Dello, Graham Gouldman, Bee Gees, Simon & Garfunkel, Beatles, 'Rubble' and 'Fading Yellow' comps. "...fine and imaginative pop with a psychedelic edge that's a treat for fans of '60s sounds..." -AllMusic.
