Parasol Label Group's reissues imprint, Reaction Recordings, is thrilled to announce the long-overdue deluxe 2xCD and digital reissue of The Finchley Boys' 1972 album, "Everlasting Tributes." For those who don't know, it's a great wasted heavy psych record, featuring cuts like their hard-rocking reinterpretation of the Kinks song ‘I'm Not Like Everybody Else’, the superb ‘It All Ends’, and the best cut for me, the anti-establishment anthem ‘Restrictions’. This is the only album ever released—and it’s a good one—by this band from Champaign, Illinois.

Known for their great live shows and theatrical antics, including some stage work with a live boa constrictor five years before Alice Cooper made it famous, the Finchley Boys were ahead of their time. They started recording in the fall of 1968 and throughout 1969, but those songs would not be heard until the release of "Everlasting Tributes." Although the original album has been bootlegged many times over the decades these pirated releases delivered poor sound quality. This, the first official, definitive, band-authorized CD/digital release for the Finchley's material, was carefully restored from the original master tapes. Considerable time was then spent remastering the tracks to bring them up to modern day standards. The deluxe 2xCD package features a second disc of bonus tracks, entitled "Neverending Tributes," which includes a recently rediscovered trove of recordings from 1968-1969. Also includes a 24-page booklet featuring liner notes by Ugly Things Zine scribe Scott Wilkerson as well as a slew of rare/never-before-seen photos.
