This is the first official re-release on vinyl under licensed courtesy of BMG Rights Management, UK, remastered from an original master copy out of the vaults of BMG. The album was originally released in 1971 on B & C records (UK) and on Philips (Germany). Hailing from Newcastle Upon Tyne, Ginhouse were a short lived progressive rock trio featuring Geoff Sharkey (lead guitar & vocals), Stewart Burlinson (bass guitar & vocals) and Dave Whittaker (drums). This power trio played a highly imaginative and powerful form of rock. The band recorded their only album at Abbey Road studios with producer Anders Henriksson (also producer of the legendary Quatermass). On several tracks the keyboard parts played by producer Anders Henriksson push the music of Ginhouse towards a musical style strongly related to 'In The Court Of The Crimson King' (1969), the debut album by King Crimson. The combination of the lead vocals, which occasionally sound like the voice of Greg Lake, the acoustic guitar, organ and Mellotron flutes reminded one of several tracks from that album. Ginhouse were also influenced by the music of The Beatles which can be heard throughout the album. The resulting record featured excellent original compositions such as 'Tyne God,' 'The Journey,' 'The House' and 'Sun In A Bottle,' along with a highly effective reworking of The Beatles' 'And I Love Her.' The overall sound is clearly dominated by the electric guitars. There are slightly elements from psychedelic rock and folk music. If you like guitar driven progressive rock mixed with some hard rock and minor psychedelic elements you might wanna give a try to Ginhouse's lone LP. Another critic describes similarities to Jethro Tull (flute), May Blitz or T2. The guitars, depending on the arrangement, were either heavy or light sounding, both electric and acoustic. Sharkey could play fast when called for, but also used acoustic guitar to good effect. You'll also hear occasional judicious use of strings ('Portrait Picture') and flute ('Fair Stood The Wind') mixed in among some songs, which help flesh out the music. The vocals are right out of the '70s British scene, nothing truly outstanding but (along with the lyrics), were a good example of progressive rock of the period. Disbanding soon after the release of their only album, the music of Ginhouse is now highly sought after by collectors of early '70s progressive rock. This a fantastic album of old school rock of the early 1970's. There's not a bad track on the album. Shame they only made this masterpiece. Everyone should have a copy. The album comes with original gimmick cover gatefold sleeve with a 4-paged insert sheet with bandhistory and photos. Remastered.
