Quiet Sun - Mainstream. 1975 England

Quiet Sun's sole album is about as good as it gets when melding the tuneful Canterbury style with that of a ferocious jazz rock band. Love those thick fat analog fuzz tones throughout! The title seems to come from the rejection of the album by multiple record companies who were more interested in obtaining a hit record. Though it appears the A&R gentleman from Warner Bros quite liked the sound and was at least interesting in hearing them live. Island, on the other hand, trashed the sound so. And that's the label it ended up on. So go figure...

Personal collection
CD: 2008 Arcangelo (Japan)

The above mini-LP is basically the exact same as the Expresion reissue (Manzanera's own label) with similar liner notes and exact sound. The only difference is the better packaging of course.
