3 stars Beware the lost ,rare progressive or psychedelic record. How many times have you read or heard that they are some undiscovered masterpiece. Maybe this album is not a masterpiece but it is not too bad either.

Twink is John Adler whose music career got going around 1963 when he was drumming in a band in Colchester. He changed his name to Twink in 1967 and played in Tomorrow. He was also in the Pretty Things and left them for early Pink Fairies.

The album commences with The Coming of Age which a good piece of British Psychedelia. Sitar and Tabla are used throughout(What more could you want) and spoken word.l 2.Is Basicaly blues/rock with a pretty good lead solo also the there is a good grungy sound used by the guitarist. 3 Sounds almost like an Indian raga. Only runs for a minute and a half which leads to the next tune. 4.Tiptoe on the Highest Hill is pretty good progressive music from that era. Vocals for a short period at the begining but the tune is instrumental for the remainder 5.Fluid has vocal effects but is basically instrumental 6.Mexican Grass War. There is always a track that you hate well this is it for me. It is mainly a percussion driven track but what really gets me the percussion is almost marching time. 7.Back on track another blues/rock with that grungy sound in the guitar.

Thats as far as I go with track descriptions. There are 10 on the album.

The copy I have is from Akarma and comes a really solid Mini lp size book. The cover looks great.

This a fairly good album but I rate it as only 3 stars. For 4 stars I 'd say that as soon as the album finishes you want put it on again. This album does not do that for me
