T2 - T2 (recorded 1970, released 1997)

EAC | CD Image | FLAC+CUE+LOG+Covers | 226 mb+3% recovery

2008 digitally remastered reissue of this collection of unreleased demos. Even though fame and fortune never came to pass for T2, their Decca album It'll All Work out in Boomland has become an all-time classic amongst collectors of Progressive and Psychedelic music, and even in the Techno and DJ scenes. For years, fans assumed that Boomland was both the beginning and the end of the group's recorded legacy. But Acme Records unearthed an eponymous second album of material, recorded in 1970 with the original line-up as demo tracks for a planned second album. This second T2 album, had it been released in 1970, could have put the band on the same level of fame with the likes of Deep Purple, Free, and King Crimson (bands with whom T2 shared a stage). It's hard-driving opener "Highway", ablaze with wailing guitars, gives way to moody introspection, culminating with the LSD induced finale "T2".
