The recently rediscovered and significantly different Decca Nova series Mono Mix was originally intended for release in 1969, but hasn't been released on vinyl until now! The LP comes with a bonus 45 of The Aquarian Age 10,000 Words In A Cardboard Box b/w Good Wizard Meets Naughty Wizard 7", produced by Mark Wirtz in 1968. The record also includes a previously unpublished portrait of Twink in 1970. Limited 350 copies on standard weight. 
Ripley Johnson (Wooden Shjips / Moon Duo) on Think Pink: 
"Twink was the drummer in the Pretty Things when they made SF Sorrow. This is the solo album he did directly after that with members of The Deviants, before they all went on to form the Pink Fairies. Think Pink is one of the great records of the original psychedelic era. It uses all those classic psychedelic effects, a lot of phase-shifting and panning, but to great effect. It sucks you in and messes with your head. It’s well-produced, but it’s weird. I don’t think it was recorded with any intent of being on the charts. Back then, it was harder to make a record. What’s great about a lot of the classic-era psychedelic records is that people got a chance to go into a studio, which was a big deal, and then they made something completely weird that had no chance of selling – but they did it anyway, which I think is really admirable. Twink was a genuine freak, he was living the radical lifestyle to the full."
