“I Spider” is truly a lost classic of the Progressive era. Originally released by Polydor Records in 1970, the album was influenced by the experiments of groups such as King Crimson, Gentle GianT et al, but was more than a mere clone of these bands.
The group evolved from an excellent blues influenced band who released three albums for Deram, who then recruited Keyboard player and writer Dave Lawson and recorded their final album. The musicianship on the album was excellent and Keyboard player Dave Lawson’s compositions were groundbreaking and memorable. The group soon evolved into Samurai.
This Esoteric reissue is re-mastered from the original master tapes and features two bonus tracks recorded live in Sweden in 1971, a booklet with previously unseen photographs and an interview with Dave Lawson.
