Sommor Records present the first vinyl reissue of The Fox's For Fox Sake, originally released in 1970. Sounding more akin to something released in '67-68, For Fox Sake is a superb example of UK psych, highly recommended if you're into Apple, Koobas, Zombies, Octopus, Skip Bifferty, Spencer Davis Group, Rubbles... Formed in Brighton in 1968 with roots to the mod-soul scene, The Fox consisted of Steve (Stephen) Brayne on lead guitar and vocals, Winston Weatherill (ex-Gary Farr & The T-Bones) on lead guitar and sitar, Alex Lane on keyboards and vocals, Tim Reeves on drums, and Dave Windross on bass. During their brief existence they supported The Herd and opened for David Bowie. Their sound was loud and righteous with great vocal harmonies, tight rhythm section and wonderful keyboard/guitar solos. After getting signed to a London management, they recorded their only LP in one session and they had it released in the UK on the Fontana label and on the USA on Crewe, featuring a different cover. Sadly, the band broke up following year and since the inclusion of "Butterfly" in one of the Rubbles comps several decades later, they've become a cult group among psych collectors. Remastered sound; Includes insert with photos/memorabilia, plus liner notes by band member Steve Brayne. Includes original UK artwork.
