3 stars A good showcase for Alan Gowens talents. His early demise was a loss. (His final release 'Before a word was said' is a great album).

On this first Gilgamesh release it all sounds as if it was played on poor equipment, Nevertheless , it contains some great moments. Phil Lee is much more of a jazz player than Phil Miller was in the 70's and it shows. However the 'Frpipish' tone of Phils guitar on 'One end more' is excellent.

The CD contains some meaty bass playing by Jeff Clyne who was later to form 'Turning Point'. ( How I wish their releases were available on CD) Recommended for anybody who enjoys National Health , Hatfield & the North and Isotope
