Reissue, originally released in 1969. Experimental prog act East Of Eden’s daring debut album Mercator Projected was released by Deram in 1969. Former Graham Bond Organisation bassist Steve York and drummer Dave Dufort supply the tough rhythmic backbone on which frontman Geoff Nicholson weaves his edgy guitar, with Dave Arbus’s electric violin supplanting what would normally be played on rhythm guitar, Adrian Martins’s sax and flute completing the picture with central European melodies. Hard rocking, melodically meandering, and including a one-off take of “Eight Miles High,” this is prog with a bold difference. A killer set from start to finish. Licensed from Cherry Red.
