  • Mighty Baby - Egyptian Tomb

    Someone recommended this to me, thinking I might like it. I believe it's quite collectible. Is it any cop and how rare is it on a scale of 1-10?

    someone was asking about that in the snippets section
    here is a link http://www.8ung.at/rahel-and-the-cav...yptiankurz.mp3

    i reckon it sounds like the beta band.

    they are ex-members of mod-faves The Action.

      Yeah, knew the Action... Oooh it's pretty nice. Can everyone stop bidding on it if they it on eBay until I've got a copy, please? Ta

      It actually sounds a bit like one of the tracks on Ice Cream For Crow, but obviously without Captain Beefheart's faintly terrifying singing over the top.

        Im sure AV stuck this on one of his mixs. Maybe SITKOD.

        Went for a tidy sum on ebay... They did two lps. Both seem pretty pricey too.

          ooh, just checked ebay and it seems that mighty baby then morphed into gang called THE HABIBIYYA playing eastern psych.

          does anyone know the album 'If Man But Knew'?

          sounds as if it might be good

            i used this in an old soul strut mix (sadly for me it was Teddy Rosso's LP), you can hear it on their site still.

            it's a stunning track from a great band. the OG LP was on Head, came out in UK and USA, goes for 60-80 quid or more on either pressing. there's a bootie reissue of the LP on vinyl called 'Egyptian Tomb' and Ace reissued it on CD too.

            rareness? 7 or 8 on LP. it really doesn't turn up often and is sought after by pysch collectors so it's well known as an expensive record by dealers.

              I love this track. I didn't know there was a 45. I shall not rest until one is mine. I think it sounds a lot like The Stone Roses.

              Sermad it's on the Cherrystones / Sean Rowley thing. That might be what you're thinking of.

                      Mighty Baby are indeed pretty great, I am happily resigning myself to the Big Beat CD for the time being. Well worth hearing anyway.

                          pretty cool i think. but egyptian tomb is by far the best track on it!

                            its a very cool record. i don't have it myself but a friend of mine digs it a lot. i only listened to it once, but there was one outstanding track...but i can't tell you any more. i really can't remember...the only thing i know is, that after i had listened to it, i just putted it on my wantlist (and i still want it really bad!!) but it never turned up so far. the coolest thing: i didn't know that HABIBIYYA has some old members of mighty baby. seems pretty cool to me...

                              Frankly, not the least bit surprising. The Habibiyya LP is disappointing, especially if you're looking for a similar sound to Mighty Baby. It has a mystical Islamic theme running through it. Better off, finding the LP's they played on: Keith Christmas' Stimulus, Reg King, and, Robin Scott's Woman from the Warm Grass. Egyptian Tomb is tops. They do a nice version of Coltrane's India on that Glastonbury LP.
