Description

For our second reissue from New Zealand (our first being Dragon's Universal Radio), we go back even further to one of NZ's most significant psych-rock albums: Awake by Ticket.

This 1972 release is an out an out acid rock classic and a testament to the great chemistry created between the four members - Vocalist Trevor Tombleson, Guitarist Eddie Hansen, Bassist Paul Woolright and Drummer Ricky Ball. The rythmn section were tight and powerful, with just a hint of funk, Tombleson's vocals and stage presence were arresting and, in conjunction with Hansen's incredible guitar playing, provided a dual focus front of stage.

We have added two non-LP singles as bonus tracks: 'Stoned Condition' / 'Then You'll Fly' and 'Mr. Music' / 'Them Changes' (a killer version of the Buddy Miles classic!).

Package Contents

Awake has been remastered by Gil Matthews, liner notes from noted New Zealand writer Nick Bollinger, packaged in a deluxe 6 panel digi-pak with many rare photos.
