Accolade - s/t (1970) [Original US Stereo LP]

Accolade - Accolade (1970)
Original 1970 USA Stereo LP: Capitol ST-597
~ThePoodleBites Rip in 96kHz / 24bit + full artwork~

An incredibly strong record output by one of the UK’s finest late psych-era bands. No good CD of this has ever appeared, at least nothing that can even begin to compare to the sound quality output here. I ripped this a few years ago and posted it to the “big” torrent sites, but this rip is done with superior equipment and in high-resolution. Highly recommend if you’re a fan of vocal jazz/fusion or psychedelic folk.
