Andromeda was a late 60's band that had John Cann (later he joined Atomic Rooster) in their line-up. They only released one album, the self-titled and amazing Andromeda (1969) by RCA Records.

Andromeda (1969) comes absolutelly soaked in Blues Rock, Proto Prog and Psychedelia and is, in many ways, the precursor of some bands.

Andromeda is completely Proto Prog in songs like the amazing opener 'Too Old', 'Turns To Dust', 'Return To Sanity' and 'When To Stop'.
In other hand tracks like 'Day Of The Change' and 'Return To Sanity' sounds as Black Sabbath. But remember that Black Sabbath only released their first album in 1970.
I could say that Tony Iommi was very aware of this band/album while Black Sabbath was writting their first album.

Andromeda (1969) also comes with high psychedelic colors of course (just look at the cover) in tracks like 'And Now The Sun Shines', the Cream influenced 'The Reason' and the folk driven 'I Can Stop The Sun'.

What we have in Andromeda (1969) is a beautiful and raw (recorded in less than a month) Proto Prog album with Blues Rock and Psychedelic colors. Everything packed with an amazing bass playing by Mick Hawksworth (that also played with Fuzzy Duck), solid drums by Ian McLane and loads of great guitars by John Cann and good vocals.

My CD version is the Repertoire Records 1994 version and has 8 bonus tracks.
Bonus tracks are 95% of the time, wasted time, a fan thing. They were not good enough to be on the original record and are still not good enough to be on re-editions too. Not different here.
We have some good tracks like 'Go Your Way' and 'Let's All Watch The Sky Fall Down'. But the rest is pretty much forgettable.

Too bad the band didn't survived to record a second album.
