5 stars I think this vinyl single crystallizes neatly all elements what were great in the first line-up of Pressa, and show both their mellow melancholic and happy jazzy psych rock sides. Both compositions are also best quality they could deliver, making this a really good item to the bar's jukebox selection, collector's hunting item and as bonus tracks for the full album releases. The A-side's "Solitary" is ideal minor ballad for Frank Robson's beautiful voice, and contains Jukka's fine guitar solo's pairing Juhani's saxophone lines. The song does a trip of love-hurt feelings in a circular form, exploiting really beautiful melodies. B-side's "Deep Thinker" is a happier tune for running at the summer pastures or after your local pusher. Music is driven on basis of great rhythm guitar and drums, led by melodic flute and singing, reaching culminations on short and effective guitar solos. In my humble opinion just marvelous 7" of musical awesomeness.
