Eclipse Record of the Day: Spirit The Family that Plays Together + Feedback 2xLP set (1975).

Kind of an odd collection, featuring complete versions of Spirit’s second and fifth albums, despite them being released four years apart, originally on different labels, and with very different lineups (only drummer Ed Cassidy and keyboardist John Locke appear on both—the two records have different primary songwriters).

But why argue with a good thing? “Family” finds Spirit in its early progressive phase, with touches of psych and jazz creeping in around the edges. “Feedback”, despite the title and psychedelic cover art, is a more straightforward, slightly countrified rock album.

$11, and 10% off today. Check the recent arrivals!
