"Another collectable from the Saga back catalog, issued in 1970 on the Pantonic subsidiary, but originally recorded in Italy, this killer organ instro LP is reissued on vinyl for the first time. On their debut LP The Underground Set delivered a shot of groovy organ-ized go-go sounds -- the kind of sounds that wouldn't sound out of place at a late '60s European psychedelic club or a teen exploito movie, with the perfect mix of psychedelic/progressive garage attitude and library music dexterity. An album to be filed along other killers like Blue Phantom or Ugly Custard. But also the kind of sounds that would inspire later artists such as Graham Day when he formed The Prisoners. The Underground Set was also committed to record the soundtrack theme for a couple of Italian TV shows, and later recorded a second album which followed the same line but with a heavier progressive edge. Lovers of mad organs and swirling fuzz psychedelic guitars will have hours of enjoyment with the purchase of this delicatessen that has, again, been mastered from the original tapes and housed in a quality sleeve. Best quality ever plus two bonus tracks: the Saga LPs were really low-budget pressings, so they tended to be of poor quality and usually done on recycled vinyl. Better than the real thing, but only available for a limited time: these 500 copies only will be gone soon!"
