More information: SNAKE EYE started life as the band RED DIRT who in 1970 had a self-titled album released on the Fontana label. After playing numerous dates in London the band were signed to new management who promptly changed the band’s name to SNAKE EYE. The band then toured with many of the top acts at the time including FREE, MARC BOLAN, KINKS, STATUS QUO and J GEILS BAND.

In 1972 the band went into the studio to record their debut album which was described at the time as a cross between King Crimson and Wishbone Ash. MANFRED MANN praised the band “as one of the best bands he had seen”. The world was their oyster but musical tastes were changing fast and by the end of 1973 with no major label signing the band folded.

Now released for the first time ever a true Prog rock gem from the early 70’s.
