A self professed oddity from the Fruits de Mer/Regal Crabomophone label. This is a guy they found on youtube, Kris Gietkowski, who performed and recorded (by himself) most of the first album by Canterbury scene psych-prog rockers Egg. From 1970 it is an obscure psychedelic trip through time signatures and 70s experimentation. The internet is a crazy tool sometimes.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 26 April 2017

I'm very glad that in this day and age a man with a ponytail from Poland covering songs from prog rockers Egg's debut album for his own enjoyment can get a vinyl release but that's exactly what has happened here.

For reasons only known to himself, Kris Gietkowski has covered most of the first album by the band who featured Dave Stewart (the one who worked with Barbara Gaskin, not the Eurythmics one). It's a pleasant journey through pastoral English prog rock and there's a section on 'I Will Be Absorbed' that has been sampled somewhere but I can't quite place it (Diplo! - thanks google). I'm not massively familiar with the original Egg so I couldn't tell you how this compares but if you are a fan of the original album you'll want to pick this up as it's the most unusual curio.

For the uninitiated,  think of the type of organ-led progressive music also made by Soft Machine, Caravan and Gong. Amazing coloured vinyl too.
