Mercator Projected is a music studio album recording by EAST OF EDEN (Eclectic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1969 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. How this album is so unknown is much of a question. EAST OF EDEN blended Classic Rock with jazz solos,psychedelic movements,Classical hints and bluesy riffs to create one of the most rich-sounding albums of the time. In ''Mercator projected'' the fuzzy guitars of Nicholson and the complicated bass work of York are battling with the obscure.

Mercator Projected from East of Eden (1969) (LP). This is the first Lp by the group East Of Eden, titled 'Mercator Projected', released in 1969. The music on this rare and under-appreciated classic is a mix of progressive rock/psych, with jazz, classical, and eastern influences. It is highly regarded as an early Progressive Rock classic!.
Fantastic album from an English group that bridged the psychedelic and progressive worlds together. East of Eden had put out a non lp single prior to their debut album, Mercator Projected, which was released in 1969 off Decca. The band formed in 1967 and was centered around classically trained violinist Dave Arbus, guitarist Geoff Nicholson and vocalist/sax player Ron Caines. The group had a strong underground following in London and in other parts of Europe but never attained the widespread success they deserved
