Coming from the same Minneapolis '60s scene which spawned bands like The Litter, Thundertree evolved from garage band The Good Idea. In 1970 they released their sole album for the Roulette label: a perfect example of the transition from psychedelia to hard-rock and early progressive sounds. Killer fuzzed-out guitar, organ, and powerful vocals. Including hard-psych classics like "In the Morning" and "Room at the Top of the Stairs" along with the monstrous 17-minute long "2025" suite. For this, the first-ever legit vinyl reissue of Thundertree, Guerssen has included two previously-unreleased tracks: "Pepper Palace" (a great psychedelic number) plus a storming cover of "Sixteen Tons," which was the signature song in Thundertree's live shows. Both tracks were recorded at UA Studios, Minneapolis, in 1970. Includes an insert with lot of pictures and bio notes by Billy Hallquist (Thundertree, Persephone Billy). 24-bit remastered sound.
