Item ID: 482563

Recording a solo album in 1969 allowed Troggs guitarist Chris Britton to take a greater artistic freedom, though 'As I Am' didn't veer too far from The Troggs' standard blend of poppy psychedelia and garage rock, constructed with a particular English bent. Yet, with Britton composing all of the songs except one (his version of Larry Weiss' 'Evil Woman'), the material is surprisingly varied, with opener 'Sit Down Beside Me' and tracks like 'Fly With Me' are rocking grooves with
bright brass, Latinesque percussion and a bit of psychedelic phasing, while 'No Sense In Hiding' is a slinky blues and 'Sleep My Love' is pure dreamy psych. A rare and underappreciated gem that will appeal to all Troggs fans and lovers of British psychedelia more generally.
