Pentagram First Daze Here

Although some material here has been previously released, First Daze Here is the first really good sounding collection of the early '70s recordings by Maryland doom/stoner innovators Pentagram. Collecting recordings done from 1972 to '76, most material included here is prime Pentagram - a band heavily influenced by the early Blue Cheer records and not that far off musically from what bands such as Black Sabbath and Budgie were doing in the UK around the same time period. The majority of these recordings were only officially released on seven-inch singles, with pressings of less than 250. A shame really, as this collection helps to expose just how criminal it was that this band was not recognised the same way. (Relapse)
