Rochdale duo Tractor (Jim Milne – Guitars and Vocals, Steve Clayton – Drums and Percussion, both sharing Bass duties) originally released their eponymous album in 1972. Needless to say, it didn’t trouble the chart compilers of the day, but slowly gained a cult status amongst followers of the underground music scene in the 1970s.
No lesser person than John Peel described Milne as “the man responsible for some of the most urgent flowing and logical guitar playing I’ve ever heard”, whilst Julian Cope has said of this album that it was “never off my turntable as a teenager”. In 1991, Q magazine simply stated “Tractor – They are completely mad”.
Of course, “completely mad” might have been used to describe many mavericks of that era, none more so than Syd Barrett, and it is the madcap himself and his early Floyd who first spring to mind as an influence when listening to this 30th Anniversary CD reissue of Tractor, especially on the opening track “All Ends Up”, which could have come straight from “The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn”.
Recorded in the bedroom and attic of producer John Brierley’s parents’ house, a.k.a. Dandelion Studios, Tractor has a ramshackle, loose, lo-fi feel to it, and other contemporary references which come to mind are the early incarnations of Wishbone Ash and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Certainly, Milne’s improvised-sounding guitar heroics are highly reminiscent of parts of Ash’s second album “Pilgrimage”.
In addition to the original album, this CD also includes two new recordings, one a live one from a reunion appearance at the 2002 Glastonbury Festival, as well as some acoustic demo bonus tracks.

Originally released in 1972, as this is Ozit's reissue of the psychedelic duo's self-titled lp as a 30th Anniversary special edition. Tractor is, of course: Jim Milne-guitar, bass & vocals and Steve Clayton on drums. Every bit as outstanding as their '...Dandelion Years' compilation {see my review}. Superb early '70's British must-have psych, justing waiting to be experienced. About every cut here wails, but here's my rundown of this disc - the absolute best tunes are "Little Girl In Yellow", the trippy "Shubunkin" and the brilliantly done piece "Make The Journey" (almost worth the price of admission alone). Other notable tracks are "All Ends Up", the awesome-sounding "Watcher", the boogie-rocker "Ravenscroft's 13 Bar" and perhaps the most beautifully done ballad I may have ever heard "Everytime It Happens". Comes with six bonus cuts, including demos and a good 2001-02 studio session with Thomas Hewitt (Chris Hewitt's son) and Nik Turner. 100% essential.

This is the reissue of the 1970's album and it just gets better everytime. Jim and steve are great musicians and create their own style of psychedelic rock that doesn't flow to far from the point as with a lot of spacey music this is great music for all occasions.

In 1972 little-known progressive duo Steve Clayton and Jim Milne were one of the elite bands signed to John Peel's legendary Dandelion label. This, their eponymous debut album as Tractor, was an eclectic mix of psychedelic rock and acoustic love songs, which thanks to Peel, reached a discerning audience and became something of a classic in prog circles. Although revered, it didn't sell in vast numbers and when I sold my original vinyl copy last year (because I no longer had anything to play it on), it sparked a bidding war on ebay and went for a three-figure sum. So imagine my delight when I discovered this 30th anniversary re-issue complete with six bonus tracks (including demo versions of Everytime It Happens and The Watcher). Every bit as ethereal and other-worldly as I remembered. A true "lost" masterpiece rediscovered!
