2012 Remastered Issue for this 1968 debut solo LP recorded during the Dutch guitarist’s pre-BRAINBOX / FOCUS period – 1st time on CD in ages!

This is the first ever UK CD release of the rare 1968 debut solo album by future BRAINBOX and FOCUS guitarist Jan Akkerman. The album was recorded after Akkerman’s tenure with Dutch group THE HUNTERS and was issued by EMI’s Imperial label in the Netherlands. The sessions saw Akkerman joined by his HUNTERS band-mates Ron Bijtelar (bass) and Sidney Wachtel (drums), with Cocky Akkerman (drums on ‘Slim Jenkins Place’).
The album was a clear indication of the future musical direction the highly talented guitarist was to follow in the band BRAINBOX, and then as a member of FOCUS. The album featured a hoist of excellent tracks, including a memorable cover version of the BOOKER T & THE MG’S classic: ‘Green Onions’.
Unavailable on CD for many years, this Remastered re-issue’s booklet features Fully Restored Artwork and a New Essay.
