Originally released 1968
CD reissue 2017 Prog Temple
Prog Temple present a reissue of The People Band's self-titled album, originally released in 1970. Containing musicians that also worked with Pete Brown, Mike Westbrook, Ian Dury, Soft Machine, and others, this musical collective coalesced in London in 1968, and soon came to the attention of jazz aficionado Charlie Watts, who financed and oversaw a recording session that October. Improvised, anarchic, and utterly original, the results are comparable to the contemporary work of Amalgam and the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, and this self-titled makes a long-awaited return to CD here.
