Digitally remastered collection. Initially formed in the late ’60s as solo singer Guy Darrell’s backing band, Deep Feeling were active for several years before eventually splitting in the mid-’70s, at which point the majority of band members moved into session work. Their opening run of singles in 1970 had seen them score a couple of minor hits with their lush, slowed-down, harmony pop versions of ‘Do You Love Me?’ and ‘Do You Wanna Dance’. The following year, the band cut an ambitious, highly eclectic album that showcased their dazzling harmonies and superior musicianship. This self-titled set (also known in some quarters as the Guillotine album) is now an extremely collectable item amongst UK progressive rock aficionados, although it failed to sell well at the time. Featuring a 16-page booklet with many rare photos and the band’s full story, this first-ever official reissue of their album is joined by thirteen non-LP tracks (all making their first appearance on CD) to provide a complete career anthology of one of the British progressive era’s most intriguing but overlooked bands.


という Deep Feeling は 70 年代の初頭から中旬に存在したイギリスのスタジオミュージシャンによるバンドで、これが唯一作(1971 年リリース)。 アーシーな雰囲気も保ちながらもブリティッシュサウンドが前面にでて、その割にはプログレっぽくもありサイケありスペースロックありと、もっといえばスチールギターやら妙に整ったコーラスワークやら、ひとくくりにできないジャンルのバンド。 ごった煮バンドともいえそう。 しかも(スタジオミュージシャン衆だからか)演奏がやたらとまとまっていて危ういところが皆無であり、マイナー感もなく、いっそう謎。
