Item Description

Synanthesia were a hybrid of The Incredible String Band , acid folk, Comus-esque darkness and jazz.
These styles/genres combined to make for quite an original sound with sax and haunting flute to the fore.
Formed in London, England in 1968 by guitarist, Les Cook, Synanthesia were a trio with an 18 year old, ex-soul bassist, Dennis Holmes, who switched to guitar and vibes.
The trio was completed by jazz sax and flautist, Jim Fraser.
They performed in and around the London area and garnered interest from the newly formed Chrysalis record label.
One of the venues that they would frequent was the infamous Three Tuns in Kent, home to David Bowie s Arts Lab.
It is rumored that Synanthesia were briefly Bowie s backing band, before he recruited the Hype and, subsequently, Hull s Rats, who became the Spiders from Mars.
Synanthesia recorded their sole, eponymous album Synanthesia in 1969 for RCA.
Unfortunately, RCA weren t interested enough to promote the band.
Without RCA s backing and the lack of airplay on the radio, Synanthesia split and the threesome went their separate ways.
This is a super rare UK Pressing of their one and only 1969 Debut Album Release on the RCA Victor Record Labels.
Both record labels are in superb Excellent Plus condition, bright and undamaged record labels with just a few signs of play.
Side 1 matrix s side 1, XGBS 0243-1 and Side 2: XGBS 0244-1.

The LP plays through both sides without faults, a superb music content.

The sleeve is a lovely undamaged example in Excellent Plus condition.
No seam splits or tears, just light record storage signs to the front panel, and light unbroken laminate lifting on the front near to the spine edge.

This is a superb example of this mega rare UK album release from, Synanthesia.
