With great honor, Fledg'ling Records announce a deluxe reissue of Andy Roberts' splendid 1973 album -- Andy Roberts And The Great Stampede -- originally released on the legendary Elektra label. One of this country's under-acknowledged guitarists and songwriters, Andy Roberts was a leading member of the Liverpool Scene, Plainsong, Grimms and the Hank Wangford Band. He has toured with Roy Harper, Pink Floyd and Roger McGough, amongst many. On And The Great Stampede his band are pianist Zoot Money (of Big Roll Band fame), BJ Cole -- Europe's finest pedal steel guitarist, electric violinist Mick Kaminski (from the Electric Light Orchestra) and the fabulous Fotheringay rhythm section -- Pat Donaldson and Gerry Conway. The legendary Ollie Halsall adds lead guitar on the first track. For this edition, Andy Roberts has written extensive sleeve notes chronicling the recording and the background to the songs. The package includes previously-unpublished photographs and five previously-unreleased bonus tracks.
