3 stars Sophomore jinx. The play is excellent, but the musical conceptions are lacking. Hurdy Gurdy Man is a rocking cover of the Donovan hit. It's All Too Much is a redo of the George Harrison tune. Don Cherry, avant jazz trumpeter extraordinaire plays on this record but it is not particularly memorable. It suffers from a lack of inspiration in general although it is quite listenable. Follow up recordings by Hillage will be more thoroughly thought out and somewhat more adventurous. It rates 3 stars simply on the merit of the musicianship involved, but is not the place to start for those looking to understand Hillage's significant contributions to the progressive rock scene.
