An anthology of all surviving 1960s recordings by The Syn, key players on the London summer-of-’67 underground circuit and - featuring Chris Squire and Peter Banks in the line-up - the starting point for Prog legends Yes.
The CD also includes two demos from 1974 featuring singer Steve Nardelli, keyboardist Andrew Pryce Jackman and bassist Chris Squire, which were ecorded as they attempted to set up a production company at the height of Squire’s success with Yes.
Includes a foreword by Phil Collins (a huge fan), many previously unpublished photos and a new 5000 word essay.
