Previously reissued on CD by Sunbeam, now issued on deluxe LP format as well; 180 gram pressing. When his classic Outlander LP failed to break through in 1970, Welsh singer-songwriter Meic Stevens' major label days were over. Gwymon ("Seaweed"), his legendary second LP, was recorded on his own terms in London in the summer of 1972, and highlights his pop sensibilities, with folk and blues influences also to the fore. It was only released in Wales in a tiny pressing, and has barely been heard since. The album makes its long-awaited LP reissue here in a deluxe gatefold sleeve containing complete liner notes, previously unseen photos, rare contemporary press cuttings and an introduction from the man himself, making it an essential purchase for all fans of psychedelic singer-songwriting. 180 gram virgin vinyl; mastered at Abbey Road: all-analog audiophile pressing.
