  • Regular price £19.99


Short-lived British psychedelic project Piccadilly Line was created by singer/guitarist Roger Hand and singer/guitarist/keyboardist Rod Edwards, who would later find greater fame as Edwards Hand. Using some of Britain’s top session players, including organist Alan Hawkshaw, guitarist Alan Parker, Jamaican-born flautist Harold McNair and double bassist Danny Thompson from Pentangle, the album was expertly arranged by composer John Cameron, who had worked on television and film soundtracks, and co-produced by folk singer Roy Guest. The result was a particularly enticing slice of British psychedelia, driven by an overriding feel of small-town Englishness, with a touch of Californian vocal harmony here and there and a nice take of Bob Dylan’s “Visions Of Johanna.”
