Trading Places present a reissue of Samurai's self-titled album, originally released in 1971. In 1971 the group called WEB changed its name to Samurai and started working on their eponymous studio album released on the obscure Greenwich Gramophone label. Samurai is a great gem of early British progressive rock, and although it was clearly influenced by legendary groups such as King Crimson and Gentle Giant, it represented a unicum in the music panorama. Unfortunately, the group disbanded shortly after the release, partly compromising its highly deserved recognition. Licensed by Cherry Red.
