Best known for their highly regarded late '60s singles (including the popsike classic "Green Mello Hill'), Angel Pavement actually cut an entire album for Monty Babson's Morgan Blue Town set-up in 1969, but sadly it failed to appear at the time due to the two singles' lack of commercial success. Including a great cover version of the Iveys' title track, Maybe Tomorrow was first issued on vinyl by Tenth Planet, but this extensively-retooled CD equivalent adds a further eight tracks, including five superb West Coast-leaning demos recorded locally in 1967 before they came down south. A genuine late '60s baroque harmony pop classic in the same vein as Left Banke and Honeybus, this release features a heavily expanded essay on the band, new quotes from group members and many previously-unseen photos.

"Without wishing to build expectations too prematurely, I have to say that this is a real beauty of an album… it sounds to me like one of the strongest projects ever to come out of a Morgan act. Baroque harmony pop with strong tunes and five-part harmony singing which just makes you smile as you listen. There are a number of tunes here which have a lot more going on in them than you might at first think, and repays repeated listening. This is my record of the month without a doubt!" (Shindig!)

"Very impressive… an amazing wealth of great songs. It really is difficult to know where to begin when every track is so lovely. This is unreservedly recommended." (Sweet Floral Albion)
