Description:

LP MAYFLY - Mayfly

Like the insect that gave them their name, the Dutch group Mayfly existed for just a short while before disappearing. In their brief lifespan, though, they recorded one truly magical and timeless album, along with a handful of singles, all beautifully crafted and imbued with beguiling atmospheres and melodies. Formed in the late ‘60s in the northern coastal town of Bergen, Mayfly recorded their self-titled album for Ariola in 1973, working with Wally Tax’s producer Martin Duiser.

The album now sees its first ever vinyl reissue, dynamically remastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180gm vinyl. The original cover artwork has been expanded into a gatefold featuring rare photos and liners notes by Mike Stax with input from the original band members. The album is an enticing blend of folk-rock and psychedelic pop with shades of the Idle Race, the Kinks, Fairport Convention and the Beatles. This reissue features two bonus tracks, the non-LP single Skew-eyed Jimmy and the alternate 45 version of the group’s first single, that jaunty, Ray Davies-inspired Blue Sofa.
