A must to anyone into ’60s British beat and psychedelia, here’s the complete recordings of pre-YES band THE SYN, featuring Chris Squire and Peter Banks.

Including their sought after mod-psych singles for DERAM (“Grounded”, “14 Hour Technicolour Dream”, “Flowerman”…) plus a treasure trove of rare 60s recordings , including a five-minute rehearsal excerpt of stage favourite ‘The Gangster Opera’, an earlier recording of ‘Flowerman’, a pre- Deram acetate of the unissued-at-the-time ‘Merry-Go-Round’, two tracks by pre-Syn band The Selfs and more. Also including are a couple of 1974 bonus tracks from post-Syn project Narsquijack.

Led by singer Steve Nardelli, the Syn formed in 1966 initially as a mod / Tamla band. They soon embraced psychedelia and flower-power with some legendary theatrical shows during their Marquee Club residency. After a string of singles for the Deram label, the band slowly evolved into legendary prog band Yes.
