Solar Marmalade

Album: New River Head (1991)


  • As might be deduced from the title, this is an instrumental. "Solar Marmalade" runs to 8 minutes 9 seconds, and appears on the 1990 New River Head album, all 30 tracks of it. It might be called psychedelic, and includes some marvelous axework. UFO fans might detect a slight resemblance to Mick Bolton's lead guitar on the Flying album. It was written by the vastly under-rated Nick Saloman. >>
