This LP is a highly coveted classic piece of U.K. Underground progressive rock and psychedelia; it was originally issued in a scant pressing of five hundred copies in 1971. The album reached celebrated standing by association, as it featured bass player Mick ''doc'' Hawksworth (five day week straw people and andromeda), and keyboardist Roy ''daze'' Sharland (crazy world of Arthur Brown and spice). Also Paul Francis (drums) and Grahame White (guitar) contribute largely to the effort. An interesting note is that the electric cello and the cricket bat are played by Hawksworth. Who knows how the hell one would play the cricket bat...well, you know it was the sixties, it was open and free and an anything goes attitude prevailed. First of all, you have to just love the cover, what great period artwork. It looks like something straight out of the San Francisco/Haight-Ashbury scene of the sixties. It''s so totally hippie, you have to love it. The music is very advanced for its time. The best example of where this group was at formatively is the track "in our time". The entire album is exceptional, as are the bonus tracks. Comparisons with Camel and Wishbone Ash will be inevitable once you give this a really good listen. If you like driving guitars and the pumping hammond organ, this will be your cup of tea. This is early prog-rock at its best.
