4 stars Curious why none of the progheads ever mention the arbitrary and blatant use of Mellotron on this rare gem. Not only is there the acid rock indian raga influence but there is some excellent and dramatic use of Mellotron notably the use of strings like that of the overused orchestra hits of 80's music. I am not a avid acid/psych listener but I think this release has a very home grown and meditative atmosphere in many sections of the two long epic pieces. Its fun and a great late night listen. The audio recording is below par but I think the music is interesting enough to surpass this shortcoming. I think its a worthy listen and because there is an extensive use of the tron and sitar it will fit nicely in my cd library amoung the many classic prog cds I own. Kudo's for someone taking the time to release this.
