Led by future Fleetwood Mac guitarist Bob Weston, Ashkan
were together for only a matter of months before imploding.
However, they did leave behind a small but perfectlyformed
legacy in the shape of In From The Cold, a blistering,
52-minute slab of turn-of-the-decade British psychedelic /
progressive blues rock that, in January 1970, became the
first release on Decca s new underground label Decca Nova.
With Weston s frenzied, proto-metal guitar heroics matched
all the way by Steve Bailey s powerful, Spooky Tooth-style
lead vocals, the album received encouraging reviews, only
for the band to split on the eve of its release. Now a major
collectable, In From The Cold has been heavily bootlegged
over the last couple of decades, but now receives a longoverdue,
first-ever official reissue.
The definitive issue of a highly regarded album, this release
features restored artwork, master tape sound and sleevenotes
that tell the band s story for the first time, with the
reclusive Weston giving a highly illuminating first-ever
interview concerning his time with the band.
Top Customer Reviews
Ashkan included among their ranks a future member of Fleetwood Mac on guitar (Bob Weston), and judging by what I have heard on this excellent album, he is a good player too. In from the cold was the first release on the short lived Decca nova label, and is a fine collection of heavy psychedelic blues rock that is slightly different to other blues rock of the period. One song "pratically never happens" appears on the compilation album Strange Pleasures; a superb collection of Decca/Deram releases.
Hard to decide which song is best, thou a possible candidate could be the last track on the album (darkness). A hard rocking tune that is ahead of it's time.
If heavy guitar based late 60s/70s blues influenced rock is your thing, then I think this record should appeal to you.
