For anyone not familiar with this album, it is a ‘must have’ for Uriah Heep fans. The album once mysterious and extremely rare & sought after by fans who knew it’s Heep connections [w/ original pressings being very costly], is a heavy album of psych rock featuring Ken & Lee, with Ken singing, and his guitar and Hammond sound. Very heavy in places on gems like “You Must Come With Me” and the title track, as well as a few softer moments such as “The Girl Who Loved, The Girl Who Loved”. Fave cut for me is “The First Time”, with it’s lengthy organ riff intro and harmonies – this would’ve made a fine Heep track. If you’re not familiar with this, but love the early Uriah Heep stuff – you will surely love this album, forgotten for decades, and finally given a proper re-issue, thanks to producer David Paramor.
For Immediate Release:
Long Forgotten Pre-Uriah Heep Album Head Machine’s Orgasm featuring Ken Hensley and Lee Kerslake Re-Released Officially for the First Time Since the 1970s!
Head Machine’s Orgasm Receives Definitive 50th Anniversary Edition Re-Master – OUT NOW!
Head Machine’s Orgasm album was recorded in 1969 and this is the FIRST OFFICIAL RE-RELEASE of the album since 1971. Every other re-release since then has been a counterfeit.
The album features four members of The Gods: Ken Hensley (also of Uriah Heep, credited here as Ken Leslie), Lee Kerslake (also of Uriah Heep, credited here as Lee Poole), John Glascock (also of Jethro Tull, credited here as John Leadhen) and Brian Glascock (credited here as Brian Poole).
This 50th Anniversary Edition has been given a 2020 re-mastering and its better sound quality than any previous edition. The packaging is a 6-panel digipack and the booklet features new liner notes by David Paramor plus exclusive comments from Ken Hensley, Lee Kerslake and Brian Glascock.
Work on this re-release was completed in early 2020, for a May release which was the 50th Anniversary month of it’s first release. The Covid-19 pandemic delayed that plan and then the publicity was held, when Lee Kerslake and then Ken Hensley passed away, to ensure the painstaking work undertaken on this re-release wouldn’t be mistaken for a cash in.
The original producer David Paramor endorsed the re-release saying “This album is a chapter in the history of everyone involved, and in these days of less prudish attitudes, I hope this 50th Anniversary release will bring some of the tracks to a wider audience.“
