Five Day Rain - Selftitled (1969)

Factory/Fleur de Lys connected early '70s UK psych monster with all the right moves. Sounds like the aforementioned bands with dash of Ogden's period Small Faces. Great guitar work particularly on the long trippy instumental "Rough Cut Marmalade".... Ace album.

One of the rarest UK albums; just 15 copies of this album were put out but soon after someone circulated 'white label' copies of it so beware of these.

Graham Maitland had earlier been in Scots Of St James and Hopscotch. He was also in The Fleur de Lys in their final days. The album contained some adventurous pop compositions often with a taint of psychedelia but it was eventually put out as a private pressing in a plain white cover because no label was interested in it. Notable cuts are the 11-minute instrumental Rough Cut Marmalade, which is the album's most psychedelic offering; the catchy Sea Song and keyboard driven Leave It At That.

The CD reissue omitted Too Much Of Nothing and tampered with Marie's A Woman. Graham Maitland was later in Glencoe but the other members quit the music business.

1. Marie's a Woman - 2.46
2. Leave It At That - 4.30
3. Don't Be Misled - 2.18
4. Rough Cut Marmalade - 11.04
5. Goodyear - 4.01
6. Sea Song - 4.12
7. Lay Me Down - 1.16
8. Reason Why - 4.42
9. Fall Out - 4.12
