Continuing in its ongoing mission to return underappreciated vintage psychedelic gems to the marketplace, Sundazed presents High Tide’s beloved 1969 British cult classic Sea Shanties as it was originally meant to be heard, in the 12” vinyl LP format.

A one-of-a-kind collision of psychedelia, prog and heavy rock, Sea Shanties embodies the darker edge of psychedelic rock, while presaging the wave of heavy metal combos that would soon emerge in Britain. Although it’s been out of print in the United States for decades, Sea Shanties has attracted a fervent cult following in recent years, making this release a particularly timely one.

Originally released in the heady musical atmosphere of 1969, Sea Shanties was the first album by High Tide, a quartet fronted by guitarist/singer/songwriter Tony Hill, formerly of the legendary garage combo the Misunderstood. High Tide embodied the eclectic attitude of its era, combining psychedelic influences with a harder, darker edge that’s reflected in Hill’s ominous lyrics and the band’s raw, punchy sound. High Tide’s most distinctive sonic trademark was the unique interplay between Hill’s slashing, effects-laden guitar and the aggressive, distortion heavy playing of violinist Simon House (who subsequently joined Hawkwind and recorded with David Bowie).

For this LP reissue, Sea Shanties has been meticulously remastered from the original stereo analog masters to faithfully preserve the sound of the original album. In keeping with the high standards for which Sundazed has become known, the album is pressed on high-quality, high-definition vinyl, with complete original cover art that reproduces artist Peter Whitehead’s elaborate gatefold design.
