Label : Nasco
For many years the target of counterfeiters, the sole 1971 LP by Alabama guitar prog/psych-rockers Felt was an early candidate for the ‘under the counter’ reissue market. If you don’t know the record it’s an excellent psychy prog outing with twin lead guitars, melodic vocals and keyboards combined into a melancholic anglophile sound clearly influenced by the UK progressive rock invasion. The guitar solos retain something of a West Coast feel reminiscent at times of Wishbone Ash.
Originally issued on the Nashville-based Nasco label (also home to the similar, yet less interesting Whalefeathers) within months of its original release the band had fallen apart due to a drug bust, leaving this as their only legacy.
