That this is an obscure psychedelia group is heralded by the mis-spelt name: Thomas Edisun’s Electric Light Bulb Band. The Red Day Album, once thought lost, has been unearthed from 1967 by the Guerssen label. Inspired by Sgt. Pepper’s but with a pleasingly amateur, ‘enthusiast’ approach, this is worth hearing.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 18th July 2016
If you love later style Beatles you should feel very at home listening to this. This does not sound like a Sgt. Pepper rip-off either - all the music is very original. It's that all the songs had the potential to be good or even better than tracks from Sgt. Pepper (perhaps if they had gotten more than three days to record it). Unfortunately they fell into obscurity and did not get airplay in the 60's despite the appeal of songs like "Red Day" or "Champion." Maybe not a total pop masterpiece, but a very pleasing bunch of songs.
