Complex were formed in Blackpool in 1968 and after a couple of line-up changes the band recorded this debut LP in a pub in Blackpool in 1970 as a 4 piece consisting of Tony Shakespeare (drums), Lance Fogg (bass), Steve Coe (organ), Brian Le (guitar, vocals).
The idea was to release the recordings as a demonstration LP rather than a tape or waiting on one of the southern routed A&R man to show up at a live performance.
Only 99 copies were printed and sent out to major British labels with the hope of maybe securing a record deal, the remaining copies were sold at the bands shows in 1971 for a £1.
The original release has now become legendary amongst collectors of British Psychedelia with copies selling for in excess of £10,000.00
This 50th anniversary edition is limited to 500 (orange vinyl) copies.
