Named for The Shades, the Reading, UK folk club where he regularly performed, and which employed and housed guitar prodigy Derek Hall - who later played on Cooper's 1969 debut LP Oh Really!? - the little-heard Out of the Shades EP was released in an extremely limited edition by local label Kennet Recordings in 1965 as KRS 766. The songs were recorded live to a single microphone in the kitchen/bathroom/former outhouse of Mike's rambling Georgian apartment, on a portable Ferrograph reel-to-reel that the engineer otherwise used for "recording birds and trains." Paradise of Bachelor's first-ever Record Store Day release is a also the first-ever reissue of Cooper's rare first recordings.
