More Info:

Vinyl LP pressing. A Place In The Sun is a vinyl anthology of Rubble/British Psychedelic Trip cult heroes Jason Crest, including a selection of their classic '68-69 psychedelic singles for Philips ("Turquoise Tandem Cycle", Black Mass", "A Place In The Sun", etc...) plus their unissued at the time studio recordings/demos. The result is a great British late '60s psych album, recommended if you like Tomorrow, Procol Harum, Moody Blues, Small Faces, The Move, The Who, et al. The origins of Jason Crest are in beat band The Good Thing Brigade. Originally from Kent, they made quite a stir in the London club circuit, supporting established groups like The Who and The Moody Blues. No wonder they caught the eye of en vogue producer Fritz Fryer (Open Mind, etc...) who got them a contract with Philips, changing their name to Jason Crest after one of their songs, "The Collected Works of Justin Crest". Between 1968 and 1969, the band released five singles and left behind a bunch of unissued demo recordings/acetates. Jason Crest's music run the gamut from brilliant psych-pop full of wah-wah organ to Mellotron/phasing fueled introspective numbers and even heavy acid-psych/proto-metal on the freaky "Black Mass". Sadly, due to lack of success and problems with the label and between the band members, the band split after releasing their last 45 in 1969.
