Radiation present a reissue of New Bottles Old Medicine, the 1970 debut from British group Medicine Head. A duo at the time, they had recently been discovered by the legendary John Peel who immediately signed them to his Dandelion record label, following with the release of this album. One of the more enigmatic and inventive groups of the British folk-rock scene, the duo's leader, John Fiddler would simultaneously sing, play guitar and operate a bass drum and hi-hat cymbal with his foot, while bandmate Peter Hope-Evans would play harmonica, jew's harp, and various percussion instruments. Creating a sound that was simultaneously ethereal and earthy, and with a voice that touched on the heartbroken vibes of Nick Drake and John Martyn, Medicine Head were truly one of the most brilliant groups of early '70s UK scene and rarely get the attention they deserve. This reissue comes as a deluxe 180 gram vinyl.
