4 stars This is an album that would appeal to fans of Manfred Mann's Earth Band, especially the albums _Solar Fire_ and _Nightingales and Bombers_. Not surpringly, Manfred Mann mentioned Badger's first LP as a favourite in an interview I once heard and have since read. Oddly, I heard the aforementioned Manfred Mann recordings prior to hearing of Badger. There appears to be a strong influence on Manfred Mann and the direction he would take his Earth Band in the studio. Great organ from Tony Kaye here which leaves me asking many questions, the prominant one being: _Why did Yes get rid of this guy?_...not that Rick Wakeman isn't worthy.

Some great guitar solos here as well. This Badger LP also reminds me a bit of the Paice, Ashton & Lord LP _Malice In Wonderland_(as per the organ playing). A rare sampling of Tony Kaye on the mellotron here (appearently Tony Kaye wasn't big on the use of the mellotron...thought it sounded like cats dying or something?). Recommended for fans of hard progressive R&B rock...like Deep Purple, Atomic Rooster and Rare Bird/Fields.
