Formed in 1969, this UK outfit went on to record only one ultra-collectable album in 1971 for President Records. It was originally going to be titled Guerilla Jazz Rock, but came instead to be renamed Tracking With Close-Ups, which is a good thing, as this is certainly not a jazz rock album! The band toured extensively, supporting the likes of Deep Purple, Stray, Nucleus, Graham Bond, Black Cat Bones and Third Ear Band. Over the years, the Sweet Slag album has built a cult reputation with collectors. Certainly different from many released at that time – it has a unique heavy dark psychedelic aspect running through it and almost borders on proto-metal on several tracks, as well as having some darker progressive elements and Beefheart and Zappa moments. Original copies of Tracking with Close-Ups are very scarce nowadays...making this first time official reissue, culled from the original master analogue tapes, not only timely but essential. Also includes a printed insert containing archive band photos, many previously unseen.
