Shadoks's third release by Finnish band Charlies following reissues of Buttocks (2013) and Musiikkia Elokuvasta Julisteiden Liimaajat (SHAD 163CD, 2014). Jail Sessions was recorded in 1969 and 1970 in Charlies's rehearsal room, a drunk tank at the local jail, made available to the band by Kari "Pitkä" Lehtinen's father, a local police officer. After Charlies finished the 1969 Julisteiden Liimaajat album, they never thought the final product sounded right, though it received a lot of positive feedback. Pitkä (bass) and Eero (guitars) spent a lot of time considering how to deliver a harder-sounding album as a follow-up, representing the true Charlies spirit. They got the chance to make a new album, one that would be released by the famous Love Records label. That album, Buttocks, also gained a good reputation, but the result was only as good as its budget. In the end, the band was never content with it. One night Pitkä said, "Eero, we should have made our album from your tapes, the result would have been much different." Jail Sessions is those tapes. Much heavier in sound, with amazing electric guitar and 100% pure heavy underground sound. Includes alternative versions of songs from Buttocks as well as previously unknown songs.
