F
irst ever reissue of this lost treasure, originally an obscure private pressing of just 100 copies. Gigymen were a college circuit band from Cambridge who in 1974 recorded their only album at Spaceward Studios. Stunning folk-rock / folk-pop with pro-recorded sound, superb musicianship and strong songwriting. With influences ranging from Fairport Convention to The Beatles, here you'll find some superb folk-rock adaptations of traditional songs such like 'As I roved out', 'Gypsy Laddie' and 'Rocky Road to Dublin' along with fab folk-pop with Beatlesque vocals on tracks like 'Plain Jane' or 'Gone are the days'.

The album was originally released with only a blank paper sheet with the credits on the cover so we've designed a new front sleeve for our reissue. Insert with rare pictures and detailed liner notes is also included.

Remastered in 24-bit domain from the original master tapes, 180gr vinyl.
