The genesis of Havenstreet goes back to 1969, when Phil Ridgway and Jeff Vinter played in The Gas, an experimental psychedelic band heavily influenced by Barrett-era Pink Floyd. In 1977, Havenstreet issued 'The End Of The Line', a self-released album in an edition of 250 copies. It was a collection of very English songs with evocative, literate lyrics and a stunning progressive folk-rock sound. It featured one of the earliest known tributes to Syd Barrett, 'When The Madcap Meets The World'. This expanded double CD reissue of Havenstreet's sought after album includes the original 'The End Of The Line' album from 1977 and a new album called 'Perspectives' which presents the best tracks from two privately pressed mid-'70s cassettes. Also featured are rehearsal recordings and previously unreleased recordings for the group's projected fourth album (1979), which was never completed. These amazing tracks range from electric acid-folk to Barrett-esque psych-pop, pastoral folk and Caravan styled prog-rock. The CD comes with a booklet with photos and detailed liner notes. The sound is remastered from the original master tapes.

Also available: THE END OF THE LINE/PERSPECTIVES (2LP) (LP).
