On Trial - "Blind By The Sun"
(Freakophonic Records FOP002)
From Aural Innovations #29 (October 2004)
This was originally released on CD in November 2002 on Molten Records in the UK. It was licensed for release in the US to TeePee Records and came out over there in 2003. The US version lacked some of the long psych tracks that the UK version had but included the single tracks ("Higher" and "Thatís Right") that were only available on the Bad Afro 7" record. Anyway, the order of songs is arranged that you get record on 1 the fast hard and heavy as well as the more commercial songs and on record 2, the long spaced out psychedelic numbers. The record comes in an edition of 500 in a cool gatefold sleeve. Great release! Look out for a new full length On Trial record next year!
