Formed in Dordrecht in 1968, Cosmic Dealer were one of the most gifted Dutch bands to emerge from Holland's rich psychedelic scene. Their only album, 'Crystallization', has come to be regarded as an underground classic with copies changing hands among collectors for ungodly sums of money. Allying powerful heavy rock with softer acoustic sections, along with some sublime three-part harmonies, the album is reminiscent of the Pretty Things' 'Parachute'. Highlights include the magnificent 'Child Of The Golden Sun', the West Coast-flavored 'If There Is Nothing Behind The Hills', and the mesmeric title-track, which demonstrates that psychedelic rock was still very much alive and well in the Netherlands in 1971.
This expanded 2CD edition presents the 'Crystallization' LP in its entirety, along with a trove of previously unreleased demos and live-tracks, all mastered from the original tapes in ear-caressing fidelity. Bonus-material includes the wonderful previously unreleased 71 demo 'Winter (Well Be Walking)', two versions of the thrilling instrumental 'Fast', taken from a live radio-session, a pile of album-session demos, single-mixes and a small clutch of 1973 demos.
The CD booklet includes the stunning original artwork, plus rare photos and in-depth liner notes by Mike Stax. Exclusively restored dynamic 24 bit remastering from the original master tapes.
