Stray - s/t. 1970 England


My God! This has some of the most blistering guitar ever put down on vinyl. And he puts it through every effect one could find in 1970. Beyond intense. I rarely use the word underrated, as honestly how many people really rate this stuff? But dammit, if the tag don't fit here. A monster of an album. Derek Bromham plays some wicked lead here, and puts his six stringer through every effect he could get his hands on.

Personal Collection
LP: 1970 Transatlantic
LP: 197? Transatlantic
CD: 2005 Arcangelo (Japan)

Featuring a wonderful die-cut cover, Stray's debut on Transatlantic has become quite collectible over the years. I have two versions of this, one with a purple and white label (generally considered the original) and another a cream colored one with a stencil drawing.
