July- Can I go back Again 7” (Fruits de Mer Records Crustacean 71
July was a underground UK band from the 60s. They disappeared for ages and then came back in 2011 and still play today. There was a great article on them in the Greek Timemazine a couple of years ago. They released a new album of material called Resurrection. The track on this 7” is an extended version of Can I go back Again plus a slightly shorter demo version of the same song from that album. I always have my doubts about people spending their money on something like this as it is a song you already have and now just two slightly longer versions. There is a lot of music out there.. but the collectors follow this label and they have to buy it… The sound production is very clean and modern and not very 60s sounding but the song is a quite cool experimental piece with some strangeness and a bit of throwback feel with sitar twanging mixed with some electric guitar. A cool song for sure. The demo version is more vocal driven and less refined for sure.
