Product Description





REissue on vinyl of the second Complex album.

The recording sessions for Complex 2nd album The Way We Feel took place throughout June and July 1971. After the fiasco of the first album’s sound quality, Complex this time employed a professional set-up, Deroy Sound of Carnforth, to handle pressing duties. Bassist 2 LPs COMPLEX same, 1 Bonus album, 1970, UK, Long Hair LHC 294/5….LHC 2942  This is the first official re-release on vinyl of COMPLEX`first album as a 2 LPs-set under licensed courtesy of Cherry Red Records Ltd, UK. The first eponymous album by COMPLEX is among the most sought-after artefacts of British Psychedelia. Only 99 copies of the album by this Blackpool-based band were pressed. Despite the fact the debut album was recorded in November 1970 it sounds like it`s a straight out of the Summer of Love. They tear open the album with a fire-breathing combo organ lead; “Funny Feeling” is a 3-part tune revealing two factors of the Complex sound – intelligent and endearing compositions filtered through fuzzy, raw energy. “Green Eyed Lucy’s” vibrating bass guitar groove helps strike the balance between blues, soul, and unbridled teenage garage. Gratuitous guitar shredding on “Witch’s Spell” and “sensitive” boppers like “Norwegian Butterfly”, seemingly written to get the lead singer, whose confident voice is a sweet surprise, some groupie action. “Self Declaration” features an epic Iron Butterfly-esque prog-organ solo and has lot of fuzzy quitar. Then there’s favorite track – the unexpected, wildly out-of-place but somehow perfect “Josie”. It’s a surprise that this group of white suburban kids could pull off a convincing reggae dancehall number, but a joy to hear the squeaky combo organ bouncing along with the ragtag orchestra backing this weird little number. Further highlights are “Witch`s Smell” and “Storm On Way” both notable for some punchy organ work & strong vocals. In January 1971, they departed for Craighall studios in Edinburgh, and over the course of the weekend, re-recorded two tracks from the LP, “Norwegian Butterfly” and “Images Blue” (both are as  bonus title on our bonus album).Long Hair`s issue of this lost gem comes with a full-time bonus album (all titles are for the first time released on vinyl), containing some new remastered and better sounding alternate takes and a great cover of HUSH (Joe South/ Deep Purple) from a 7” acetate from 1970 and on Side 4 two long tracks (over 8 and 6 minutes long) from an 10” acetate from 1972. This is really great music. Album comes with new improved remastering, full band story, rare photos in a 4 sided cover sized insert sheet. Don`t miss this special edition!

Originally released in 1971 in an edition of 99 copies, this is one of the rarest private pressings from the UK (along with their debut album). 'The Way We Feel' is another set of playful, Swingin' London styled psychedelic pop and underground psychedelia. It features some of the best tracks the band ever recorded, f.i. the Zombies-like 'Hey Girl, You've Got Style' and the killer psych number 'We Don't Exist'.
