NEWLY REMASTERED OFFICIAL RELEASE OF THIS CLASSIC DEBUT ALBUM BY THE WELSH ROCK BAND FROM 1973 WITH TWO RARE BONUS TRACKS REMASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL POLYDOR MASTER TAPES BOOKLET WITH FULLY RESTORED ARTWORK & LINER NOTES. Formed in South Wales in 1970, the band signed to George Martin’s AIR Productions in 1972 with a line-up of TERRY BENNETT (Vocals), DAI SHELL (Lead Guitar), RALPH EVANS (Lead Guitar), RICKY JOHN HOLT (Bass) and CONGO JONES (Drums). Utilising to great effect the twin lead guitar approach of Dai Shell and Ralph Evans, Sassafras released their debut album on Polydor Records in 1973. One of the great unsung rock albums of the early 1970s, “Expecting Company” has been newly re-mastered from the original master tapes and includes both sides of a rare single as bonus tracks. This Esoteric Recordings reissue restores the original album artwork.

A superb band which were very popular on the college circuit. Fantastic music to listen to.
As an aside, i played it in the car today and my teenage son remarked what superb music to listen to ... he was well surprised when i told him it was 40 years old!
Thank you for great service.
