Welcome to one of the most exciting yet underrated bands of the early 1970s.
Ollie Hallsall is a guitar genius. ALthough a multi instrumentalist, his fluid guitar work , which plays "saxophone solos" instead of your clichéd guitar licks will blow you away.

The first two CDs are in full , plus some extra tracks that were included in the "Sense of the Absurd" compilation.

This is the 1st disc of the "Sense of the Absurd" compilation, which is way Out of Print!

4.Red Glow
5.San Antone
6.Government Man

"Patto", also known as "Anarchy", was produced by Muff Winwood, who played guitar for the Spencer Davis group and is Steve Winwood's brother. As he stated in a letter to a fan shortly after the album was released, he "…tried to do a simple production basing mainly on their on-stage sound." The simple production is part of its charm, though. It's just the band playing – in your face without a lot studio trickery.
For you guitar buffs, Ollie started playing guitar in 1967, so he had only been playing three years when "Patto" was recorded!
For new listeners, "Patto" may be a good place to start. It would be too subjective to say that the songs are better than those found on the subsequent albums, but every cut on this album is very strong. This album has perhaps a harder edge than the others as well.


These are brought to you in lossy format because their sound does not lend itself to Hi Res and the source is not he optimal; it IS OOP but they can be gotten-but the artist don't make money on them anymore…
