Item ID: 362564

Official release of legendary 1st album by this British band living in Germany. Nektar quoted their influences as Vanilla Fudge, King Crimson and the Beatles, yet what was revealed on their debut LP sounded more like a hybrid of Pink Floyd and Man. 'Journey To The Center Of The Eye' is an extraordinary album, sounding more 1968 than 1971, with lots of tripped-out guitar and organ gymnastics, with the surreal story told in song and music (Freeman brothers in 'The Crack in the Cosmic Egg'). Remastered from the original master tapes the album sounds as brillant as never before. Contains insert with band story and lots of photos out of the archive of Helmut Wenske, big friend of the band and painter of the album sleeves (starting with 'The Tab In The Ocean').

Also available: JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EYE (3CD) (CD), JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EYE (GER) (CD), JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EYE (USA) (LP).
