Trading Places present a reissue of Second Hand's Reality, originally released in 1968. Obscure prog rockers Second Hand began as the Next Collection, formed at a south London secondary school; engineer/manager Vic Keary scored them a contract with Polydor as the Moving Finger, but their legendary debut LP was credited to Second Hand, due to a rival Moving Finger. Channeling psych and spacey acid hues, there is blues-rock underpinning Bob Gibbons's guitar and keyboardist Ken Elliott helps aim the sound towards deep space; this edition features rare tracks "James In The Basement" and "I Am Nearly There" from a 1965 Next Collection single (backing Denis Couldry), already showing their freak-psych capabilities. An essential listen for all true prog connoisseurs. Licensed from Cherry Red.
