5 stars If I decided to become a Swiss monk or a hermit living off moss in desolate areas of Wales where the only movement you would observe would be the candidates for the Special Air Service this is the recording I would have with me. It is the closest Jan Akkerman came to Focus before really exploring his blues roots. I actually though that Thijs van Leer was a co writer/keyboard player on this diamond until I read the credits. There is a bit of everything on this. Latino, Bach, disco/funk. This is a piece of Jan Akkerman genius that is so overlooked. It didn't sell well and is long out of print. I have a vinyl copy of it that occupies a very special area of my collection. I think that if you go to Jan Akkerman's Youtube channel you can listen to this beaut in it's entirety.

A lost relic. Infinite stars.
