2 stars released 1970 on the super-cheap label MFP but sounds like an earlier recording to me., and probably so because the recording quality is mediocre about 7-8 out of 10. i guess the intent was to have this as a proper release as the recording on a number of tracks uses environmental sounds [london transport] and the band includes such luminaries as : chris spedding / ray russell / harry millar / laurie allan / alan rushton plus a few others. the best tracks are : side one trk`s 1 & 2 & 3 two 1 & 3 & 5 & 7 nb., trk b6 is a poetry recital by `robert cockburn` and is very good trk`s a1 / b7 sound like `if` trk a3 is more `mayall` styled trk a2 is instrumental , and sounds reminiscent of french band `ame son` trk b1 is a jazz rock with `funk` rhythm trk b3 is a `psyche` styled blues rock trk b5 is instrumental `sax` led jazz rock [med tempo]

let down trk`s being : a4 [environmental sounds with flute meandering] : a5 [middle of the road blues rock] : b4 [a bit `long john baldry` cabaret styled] if the quality of recording was `proffessional` the better trk`s would become very solid indeed.

KABSA | 2/5 |
