Presented in facsimile gatefold sleeve and pressed on 180g vinyl. Knocker Jungle's sole LP was released by Ember in 1970 when the duo had already split.

Little is known about members Tony Coop and Keith Jones, but their music displays a true passion for classic song-based artists, from Donovan to Nick Drake or Dylan.

Tony Cox held production duties and Dave Pegg and Mattacks from Fairport Convention featured among the band players.

Almost 47 years after the original album was withdrawn from sale due to a controversial picture in the inner sleeve, this rare gem gets a deserved vinyl reissue.

Ember was a British label created in 1960 by Jeffrey Kruger, founder of London's Flamingo Club.

As well as recording British acts, Ember distributed many American and other recordings in the UK.

The Knocker Jungle LP was released by the label in 1970, when the duo had already split, being withdrawn from sale shortly after due to a controversial picture included in the inner sleeve that made many shops refuse to stock it.

A single (for the Spanish market only) somehow managed to get released too, and that's about all Tony Coop and Keith Jones achieved in their short life as Knocker Jungle.

What the band members had done before this project was formed or where this album led them to remains totally unknown.
