Hatfield And The North

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Hatfield And The North - Rotters' Club Rotters' Club
Pop Used - LP V 2030 Virgin
1975 UK Fully Laminated Cover, Two Virgins With Red Dragon Beneath Label. LP Appears Unplayed. A1-U / B1-U Stampers. “Hatfield And The North's Second LP Stands As A High Watermark For The Prog Rock Associated With England's Canterbury Scene And, While Filled With Stunning Musicianship, Demonstrates Both The Strengths And Some Of The Weaknesses Of The Hatfield Style. Dave Stewart On Keyboards, Phil Miller On Guitar, Richard Sinclair On Bass And Vocals, And Pip Pyle On Drums (Supplemented By A Few Guest Instrumentalists And The Ever-Ethereal Northettes With Their "La La" Backing Vocals) Generally Show An Admirable Sense Of Restraint And, Like Their Canterbury Peers, Are Careful To Avoid The Pomposity And Bombast Of Better-Known Prog Rockers Of The Era, Such As Emerson, Lake & Palmer And Yes.” Dave Lynch, AMG.... more details
 
Hatfield And The North - Hatfield And The North Hatfield And The North
Pop Used - LP VR 13-110 Virgin
Rare 1973 Original. “One Of The Canterbury Scene's Most Revered Bands, Hatfield And The North Made Up For The Brevity Of Their Career With Some Fascinating Music. Always Adventurous, The Quartet Had The Keen Sense To Realize That Only The Most Hardened Jazz Fans Respond To Numerous Key Changes And Exceedingly Complex Time Signatures, And Thus Enlivened Their Live Set With The Odd Gnome Smashing, Suggestive Lyrics, And Jokey Song Titles. It Worked A Charm, With The Band Quickly Amassing A Large, Loyal Following At Home In Britain And Across The Continent. On Their Eponymous Debut, Hatfield Stunningly Succeeded In Translating Both Their Sense Of Fun And Their Musical Brilliance Onto Disc. After A Bit Of Light Humor, The Band Slide Into "Going Up To People And Tinkling," Which Glides Gloriously Across The Keys And Rhythm Shifts. Both "Calyx" And "Aigrette" Experiment With Vocals As An Instrument, While The Exuberant "Rifferama" Is A Master Class On The Use Of Riffs. However, It's The Expansive "Son Of 'There's No Place Like Homerton'" That Forms The Album's Centerpiece, A Propulsive, Keyboard Driven Piece That Still Awaits A Modern Dance Troop's Attention.” Dave Thompson, All Music Guide,.... more details
