Sommor Records present the first legitimate vinyl reissue of Little Big Horn's self-titled album, originally released in 1971, expanded to a double-LP set with the addition of the killer 45 B-side "Just A Game" and excellent unissued material from the time. Little Big Horn evolved from Luton-based pop-psych band Wild Silk. As occurred with many British bands from the '60s, they adopted different musical influences as the decade progressed and "underground" was the thing to be, so by the late '60s, Little Big Horn incorporated West Coast, Americana, and hard-rock elements to their powerful sound. Their sole album was released only in Germany in 1971 as part of a deal between Shel Talmy Productions and the Bellaphon label (along with other obscure acts like Sunday and Diabolus) and it's an interesting mix of roots-y Americana and heavy rock. Transferred from original master tapes. RIYL: The Band, Led Zeppelin, Byrds, Badfinger, Grapefruit, Bronco, Plastic Penny, Youngbloods. Gatefold sleeve; includes insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Alec Palao. "A fine example of its era, showcasing seasoned, but not slick, ensemble playing, and it has enough flashes of genuine inspiration to warrant reappraisal." --Alec Palao
