Finally, after much wrangling, the Blank Recording Company is truly chuffed to be able to make available again for the first time since their original releases the three highly sought after and extremely rare albums by John Sangster, originally released on Festival Records from 1967-1969.

John Sangster is known the world over as a legendary Australian jazz multi instrumentalist, composer and arranger. Aside from releasing his own records, his name is on credits on many other albums from straight ahead jazz, prog, psych, country rock, soul and all points between. Copperwine, Tully, Don Burrows, Ray Brown / Moonstone,
Sven Libaek, Judy Bailey. The list goes on…. Here's where it all came together on the solo tip...

Second album, originally released in 1968. More cover versions, plus two John Sangster originals. Much more eclectic selection of covers on this outing, Herbie Hancock, The Beatles, Little Anthony & The Imperials mixed in with tunes originating from France, Cuba, Zimbabwe all getting a start. Players on this album are John Sangster, George Thompson, Ed Gaston, Don Burrows, Graeme Lyall and George Golla. Produced by Pat Aulton.

All three of these albums are mastered from the original analogue master tapes. All three sport the original cover art. All three are sounding better than ever.
