2021 repress. Trading Places present a reissue of Mighty Baby’s self-titled album, originally released in 1969. The obscure British prog band Mighty Baby evolved from an earlier group called The Action, a London Mod act that signed to Parlophone after building a strong live reputation, with guitarist Alan King, bassist Mike Evans and drummer Roger Powell, later expanded to include former Savoy Brown guitarist Martin Stone and keyboardist/sax player, Ian Whiteman. Moving heavily into experimental psychedelia in 1969, they cut this incredible debut album for the Head label, which is rightly hailed as one of the greatest psychedelic records of all time. With jazz, blues and improvisational references abounding, tracks like “Egyptian Tomb” and “House Without Windows”, the latter with its dramatic stereo drum panning, demonstrate why this disc is such a lost classic. 180 gram vinyl; gatefold sleeve.
