Catalogue No.: WB007

02. Regards From Freddie Horowitz
Through the combination of Pike’s vibes and Volker Kriegel’s exploratory electric, acoustic guitar and sitar stylings, The Dave Pike Set was a visionary quartet with a unique identity and textural palette encompassing funk, psychedelia, avant-garde and Indo jazz grooves. Cut directly from analogue master tapes at Abbey Road Studios via an all analogue console, giving a wide dynamic range and warm open sound, the psychedelic sitar and big beat masterpiece ‘Mathar’ has never sounded better. The B-side jazz-dancer ‘Regards From Freddie Horowitz’ was named after the bands mascot, a little green monkey which was dangled in the red Citroën 2CV – Deux Chevaux, the car the four musicians used for travelling to their live concerts.
