"Prior to his conversion to Christianity in 1972, singer/songwriter/pianist/producer/engineer John Pantry had been the brains behind numerous late 1960s UK psych-pop masterpieces, writing and recording under such aliases as the Factory ('Try A Little Sunshine', 'Red Chalk Hill'), the Bunch ('Spare A Shilling'), Norman Conquest ('Upside Down') as well as leading his own groups, Sounds Around and Peter & the Wolves. This astonishing 53-track 2CD set -- a heavily expanded version of Tenth Planet's acclaimed 1999 vinyl-only release - assembles every Pantry recording that survives from 1966-71, including those aforementioned seven-inch marvels as well as a plethora of demos, many of which have been taken from a hitherto-unknown-to-exist 1968 demo album. The Upside World Of John Pantry is not only the definitive early career anthology of this fascinating figure (now a vicar in Kent), but a Holy Grail item for anyone who loves intelligent, melodic, Bee Gees-inspired late '60s British pop." Artists include Peter & The Wolves, Sounds Around, Wolfe, The Bunch, Norman Conquest, The Factory and John Pantry. Includes 16-page booklet.
