More information: Newly re-mastered and expanded edition of the highly collectable and legendary 1970 album “The Road” by Quiet World.

Formed in Lancashire in 1969 around the nucleus of three brothers, John, Lea and Neil Heather, Quiet World was a studio recording project perhaps best known for being the first album to feature future GENESIS guitarist STEVE HACKETT (and with a guest appearance from Steve’s brother, John).

Signed to Pye Records’ progressive imprint, Dawn, the band’s sole album was “The Road”, issued in August 1970. An impressive concept album, Quiet World’s sole LP is now a hugely in demand collector’s item.

This reissue of “The Road” has been re-mastered and includes six bonus tracks, taken from singles issued between 1969 and 1971. The booklet restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay with exclusive interviews with the Heather brothers, Steve Hackett and John Hackett. It also includes previously unseen studio session photographs.
