3 stars I simply love the Hammond organ based sound of Indian Summer. Add some soul, guitars and spacy melodies and you have the 1970s heaven. Well, one of them.

This English band only released this album before they splintered up and the members went in all direction. Most of them as a backing band for John Enwhistle's solo project. Which is a pity because Indian Summer was really onto something here. This album has a lot of spacy solos. Mostly hammond organ solos, but there is also some good guitar solos here. The vocals are soulful. The bass and drums more than good. The sound is excellent and in the Deep Purple and Doors mould. I am not sure why this is branded Heavy Prog though. This is not a heavy album in today's standards. Neither is it symphonic. This is one of those albums with an excellent 1970s sound. The main problem with this album is the lack of any superb songs. But the songs are generally good, with Half change Again being the best song on the album. This is another good find from the 1970s.

3.25 stars
