"In 1969, Angel Pavement linchpin Alfie Shepherd took time out from the group's hectic schedule to demo a concept album that he'd written around his favorite childhood story, Kenneth Grahame's The Wind In The Willows. Sadly Angel Pavement broke up before they'd had a chance to record the work, which was duly left to gather dust. Forty years later, Alfie's homemade recording of the proposed album finally gains a long-overdue release. Taken from the original mastertapes, and bolstered by a clutch of similarly unissued home demos from the same timeframe, The Wind In The Willows is now revealed as one of the great lost projects of the late 1960s, a thrilling psychedelic pop song-suite bursting with melodic invention, ambitious vocal arrangements and the boundless spirit of adventure that characterized the era."
