Wooden Hill is a sideline to Tenth Planet and the label developed when many people want to hear the recordings on CD. Here we have a list of the first releases as taken from the press releases


Standing Stone

Standing Stone (WHCD001)

Recorded in 1974 on a farm in the heart of Wales, a limited vinyl edition of 'Standing Stone' recieved ecstatic reviews in 1992. 'Wholly original, pure and surrealistically sublime', drooled the NME; 'a lost gem', suggested Record Collector; 'an indispensable item in any adventurous person's collection', noted Ptolemaic Terrascope; while John Peel descibed it as 'the find of the year' on Radio One. A maelstrom of folk and acid rock with distinct Beefheartian overtones

The Scorpians

Anthology 1959-1965

Anthology 1959-1965 (WHCD004)

The Scorpians released two classic instrumental singles on the Parlophone label in 1961 before apparently disappearing without trace. Now comes this 72 minute, 32 track CD anthology of demos, acetates and private recordings stretching back to the roots of rock'n'roll and ending up in the dying embers of the British beat boom. Alternate versions of their four Parlophone sides and ten previously unissued instrumental gems are included, but for many collectors the highlight will be three previously unreleased 1962 vocal recordings produced by Joe Meek. 'What a truly astonishing release...this really is a wonderful CD.' (Rob Bradford, Pipeline fanzine)

Not released on Tenth Planet

Dantalian's Chariot

Chariot Rising Chariot Rising (WHCD005)

CD equivalent of Tenth Planet's long deleted vinyl release of recordings by legendary 1967 British acid rockers, with Zoot Money and future Police guitarist Andy Summers at the helm. The CD issue of 'Chariot Rising, which has been taken direct from the original mastertapes rather than the second generation copy used for the vinyl edition, features the thought-to-be-lost sitar based outtake 'This Island' as well as every known Dantalian's Chariot recording including the photos, quotes and assorted archive material, 'Chariot Rising' is as close as anyone will ever get to piecing together the Great Lost Dantalian's Chariot Album

Bill Fay

From The Bottom Of An Old Grandfather Clock (WHCD012) recently described by MOJO magazine as "Britain’s pop Salinger", the reclusive Bill Fay cut the classic ‘Screams In The Ears’/’Some Good Advice’ single in 1967 before making two dark singer-songwriter albums for Decca, at which point he opted for public silence. This CD features 25 stunning demos and works-in-progress that were cut between 1966 and 1970: apart from three tracks that were included on Tenth Planet’s vinyl-only Peter Eden compilation a few years back, everything is previously unreleased. Amongst the highlights are a handful of tracks with Honeybus as backing band, including ‘Warwick Town’ and ‘Maxine’s Parlour’. Baroque 60s pop at its finest, this important release includes previously unpublished photos and extensive liner notes, with new quotes from Bill. - More details to come soon!
