In 1965 The End arose from the glowing embers of the earlier Tuxedos, Innocents and Original Topics, and like many of theircontemporaries evolved into a psychedelic group. Subsequently they re-invented themselves as blues rock outfit Tucky Buzzard in late 1969.Along the way, they won the support and patronage of the Rolling Stones' Bill Wyman, who in 1968 produced their solealbum for Decca, Introspection , the first LP in this set. Wyman also co-wrote their signature tune, the psychedelic classic Shades Of Orange , although the band wrote all the rest of their material. This is limited to 1000 units worldwide.
