Description

  • They made one of the rarest albums of the psychedelic era (a copy recently sold on eBay for just under £4,000), while their two singles included one of the genre’s most enduring surrender-to-the-void creations in the much-compiled ‘The Otherside’.
  • Nevertheless, so little information has ever surfaced about Apple that UK underground rock guide book Galactic Ramble described them as “probably the only legendary UK psych band still shrouded in mystery”.
  • Finally, however, we have some kind of closure with this first-ever band-approved reissue of “An Apple A Day”, which also includes mono mixes of their aforementioned brace of single releases.
  • More than half-a-century after they split, band leader Jeff Harrad spills the beans for the first time on their murky genesis in Cardiff, from their pre-Apple days on the local beat/R&B scene to the band’s brief relocation to London and brushes with guitarist Caleb ‘Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad’ Quaye and Kinks/Troggs manager Larry Page, who signed them to his Page One label.
  • Apart from the singles, “An Apple A Day” featured such psych-pop gems as ‘Queen Of Hearts Blues’, ‘Mr. Jones’ and ‘Photograph’, whose combination of brass/orchestral arrangements and Alice In Wonderland-style lyrical surrealism conjured up images of Syd Barrett fronting The Kinks.
  • With a new essay on the band that includes numerous quotes from Harrad, rare band photos and re-mastered sound quality, this new digipak edition of “An Apple A Day” is the definitive release of a classic, much-loved late Sixties UK psychedelic pop period piece.
