Unearthing another hidden gem from the Saga catalogue. Katch 22 were a bunch of young boys that produced the UK answer to the US Soft-Rock scene. It is ironic that a UK band can be so influenced by those US bands that were most highly under the influence of British popsike! Think of Harper's Bizarre, The Association, The Milenium or Eternity's Children even higher on tea! A surprisingly good production for a Saga pop/psych LP, the album is built up of excellent cover versions of some greats of the genre, paying tribute to the likes of The Left Banke ('Walk Away Reneé'), Simon & Garfunkel / Harper's Bizarre ('Feelin' Groovy') or even Buffalo Springfield ('Go And Say Goodbye') and also of some good originals in the same vein. It is certainly an underated period piece that deserves a wider recognition, a great sounding album of orchestrated (and non orchestrated) pop sounds.

The album was originally issued on Saga / Eros subsidiary in 1968, and the Wah Wah reissue respects the colourful sleeve and reprints the original insert, with sound remastered from the original tapes by Denis Blackham at Skye Mastering. Offered in a limited 500 copies only edition!


Desenterramos otra joya oculta del catálogo de Saga. Katch 22 eran un grupo de jóvenes que ofrecieron la respuesta inglesa al movimiento soft-rock estadounidense. Irónicamente, tenemos aquí a una banda inglesa cuyo sonido se basa en el de aquellas bandas americanas que más se dejaron influenciar por el posike británico. ¡Pensad en unos Harper's Bizarre, Association, Millenium o Eternity's Children aún más colocados de té! Sorprende la calidad de la producción, tratándose de un LP de pop/psych en Saga, y nos presenta excelentes versiones de algunos de los clásicos del genero, incluyendo 'Walk Away Renée' (The Left Banke), 'Feelin' Groovy' (Simon & Garfunkel / Harper's Bizarre) o incluso de 'Go And Say Goodbye' (Buffalo Springfield) mezcladas con un par de muy buenas composiciones originales. Un disco injustamente ignorado hasta ahora que merece mayor reconocimiento y que hará las delícias de los fans del pop orquestado (y sin orquestrar, que aquí hay de todo!).

Originalmente publicado en Eros, subsidiaria de Saga, en 1968, la edición de Wah Wah respeta la colorida portada original, incluye reproducción del inserto que la acompañaba en su día y viene con sonido remasterizado en los racks de válvulas de Denis Blackham a partir de las cintas originales. Edición limitada a 500 copias.
