July - The Second of July (1967)
This is a collection of previously unreleased material from the British psychedelic band July, largely consisting of demos of the songs from their self-titled album. There are a few tracks on this that didn't make it to the album though. As I mentioned earlier, it's interesting to listen to these songs and hear how much many of them were developed prior to recording the album. Although it lacks the production of the self-titled album, the lo-fi recording lends itself well to many of the tracks, particularly the acoustic ballad "Man Outside."
"(A) Bird Lived"
"You See Me I See You"
