Blossom Toes, the 60s psychedelic band that featured guitarist Jim Cregan, later of Family, and guitarist and vocalist Brian Godding, who would later work with Centipede and Magma, are to have their 1967 debut album We Are Ever So Clean reissued on 180g vinyl through Cherry Red on October 28.

The label recently released a three-CD set of the album, along with the band's heavier 1969 follow-up If Only For A Moment.

The band were signed to producer Giorgio Gomelsky's Marmalade label, and upon release We Are Ever So Clean was described by Melody Maker as “Giorgio Gomelsky’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”.

Now widely regarded as one of the greatest psychedelic rock albums, the new official limited vinyl edition has been newly remastered and was cut at Abbey Road Studios. The LP is a facsimile of the original 1967 release and features an illustrated inner bag.
