Demon Music has re-released the Bill Wyman produced album Introspection from 60s psychedelic group The End as part of a four CD collectors set.

The End is one of the most overlooked groups from the 60s, producing groundbreaking music that stands up today. Grab some headphones, spin up anything from The End and be prepared for a audio tour de force.

Salon hailed The End’s Introspection as the ‘Holy Grail of headphone albums’ in November 2015.

Bill Wyman was the producer on Introspection – working behind the scenes during his Stones career – to help shape The End’s adventurous audio soundscapes for Decca.

From Beginning To End is the new, re-released four CD set of The End’s albums, available to buy on iTunes and Amazon.

In 1965 The End arose from the glowing embers of the earlier Tuxedos, Innocents and Original Topics, and like many of their contemporaries evolved into a psychedelic group. Along the way, they won the support and patronage of the Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman, who produced their sole album for Decca, “Introspection” (CD2). He also co-wrote their signature tune, the psychedelic classic “Shades Of Orange”, although the band wrote the rest of their material.

This 4 CD clamshell box set gathers together all of The End’s extant recordings, the material on CDs 1, 3, and 4 having only previously been released on vinyl in the ‘90s. CD 1 covers the early days from 1964 to 1967, CD 2 is the 1968 “Introspection” album with two bonus tracks, CD 3 features outtakes (including four previously unreleased bonus tracks) from the period 1968/69, while CD 4 rounds up the band’s recordings from 1969/70, before they reinvented themselves as Tucky Buzzard.

This box set also contains a booklet with artwork by legendary designer Phil Smee, including photos and ephemera, a note by founder member Colin Giffin, and the band’s comprehensive story written by David Wells.

CD2 – Introspection (1968-69)
