|Chris Wood Moon Child Vulcan Limited Vinyl LP
"Perhaps best known for co-founding Traffic with Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi and Dave Mason, Chris Wood was self taught on Saxophone and Flute although he was also an accomplished keyboards player and bass guitarist too. And a fine artist as well. From Stourbridge College of Art, Chris was accepted by the Royal Academy in 1965 where he ultimately faced the choice – music or art. Mastered from the original ¼” analog tapes, this is the first time Chris’s only solo LP – Moon Child Vulcan – has been issued as a stand alone LP.
The 1/4"" masters – thought lost for decades – were found, by chance, in an outbuilding during April 2013, having lain undisturbed for over 30 years.Moon Child Vulcan is presented in a gatefold sleeve with a 20-page (stapled not glued) insert comprising new and updated interviews with studio personnel and musicians involved in the making of the album as well as never before seen images.
The included download card contains both hi-res and MP3 files for not only the album but also demos, different mixes, alternate takes and other solo recordings. Chris’s posthumous, 2015 collaboration with Mercury Music Prize nominated Maps entitled What To Look For With… concludes the download tracks."
