The Gem Of The Week Segment Is Back With SKYEROS-SKYEROS 1975 USA RURAL PROG PSYCH RARE PRIVATE PRESS

SKYEROS-S/T 1975 (MO) PRIVATE PRESS

LISTEN FULL LP PRESS HERE!!

This band was originally named Skye, but changed their name to Skyeros due to a possible legal issue with a funk band named Skyy.They played live all along the Midwest before releasing their sole lp They later briefly changed their name to the Mason-Dixon Band. The band disbanded after one of their roadies was murdered. A great  original song of theirs is "Making Me Blind", they played it live,but it was never recorded.The origin of the band is   from the state of Missouri (since confirmed to be from Farmington, MO). This album  was recorded at Golden Voice Studios, which is in Pekin, Illinois (near Peoria). The studio is not a stranger to fans of the Midwest progressive crowd, as its where Pentwater, Starcastle (first album) and Styx (Man of Miracles) laid down their recordings. St. Louis based rock group Head East also recorded there. 

pics from my collection:

The album is somewhat coveted by collector's of the underground American scene. These guys  released this one rare private press LP before disappearing into total obscurity. It's become quite expensive over the years, probably due to being mentioned in collector books like Acid Archives, the Pokora guides, etc (also, it has a great trippy cover). I'm not so sure the hype is really warranted, but it's definitely not a bad listen. Quite melodic, guitar-fronted prog/psych with a very "rural rock" feel, which was very common for underground US groups at the time.
