collusion Collusion (numbered 180g vinyl LP, £16.95)label: Audio Archives
First ever vinyl reissue of the self-titled Collusion LP originally pressed in tiny quantity on the custom SRT label back in 1971. Limited to 500 units housed in beautiful gatefold sleeves. Collusion was a Dagenham based six piece progressive group active during the early 70s that featured twin guitars and interwoven male/female vocals to great effect combining hard-edged prog-rock with folk and jazz elements. Highlights of the LP include the stunning ‘Bluebirds’ and epic ‘Sweetbread Line’ composed by lead guitarist Mick West which reveal the band’s natural ability to shift effortlessly from a slow tempo to jagged and complex time changes with intricate arrangements. Copious pictures and memorabilia plus extensive band history penned by vocalist Tony Davison and guitarist Mick West (sadly deceased) with extra comment from their manager and notable promoter Darrol Edwards who was very much part of the underground scene and who ran the famous Growling Budgie Club and, later, Manchester’s famous Stoneground.
