Formed in Dordrecht in 1968, Cosmic Dealer were one of the most gifted Dutch bands to emerge from Holland's rich psychedelic scene. Their only album, 'Crystallization', has come to be regarded as an underground classic with copies changing hands among collectors for ungodly sums of money. Allying powerful heavy rock with softer acoustic sections, along with some sublime three-part harmonies, the album is reminiscent of the Pretty Thing's 'Parachute'. Highlights include the magnificent 'Child Of The Golden Sun', the West Coast-flavoured 'If There Is Nothing Behind The Hills' and the mesmeric title track, which demonstrates that psychedelic rock was still very much alive and well in the Netherlands in 1971. This expanded, double-disc 180-gram vinyl edition presents the 'Crystallization' LP in its entirety, along with a trove of previously unreleased demos and live tracks, all mastered in ear-caressing fidelity from the original tapes. Bonus material includes the thrilling instrumental 'Fast', taken from a live radio session, single mixes of 'The Scene' and 'Head In The Clouds', and a handful of 1971-'73 demos. The set comes packaged in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, loaded with rare photos and liner notes by Mike Stax from UGLY THINGS magazine. HOUSED IN MAJESTIC 350-GRAMS GATEFOLD SLEEVE and REMASTERED IN THE 24-BIT DOMAIN FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES.
