4 stars Wow what a disc. I have known Rare bird since childhood with their Sympathy song -a great song. I didn't know until lately what a great prog band they were. This disc is full of power mellotrons and great singing. The melodies are fantastic. The climax is the 20 minutes "As your mind flies by". It's astounding - full of great melodies, change of rhythm, strong vocals. A real wow. Not many bands did a 20 minutes song back then. what a change from Sympathy to a 20 minutes great song. The quality of the recording is good and the bonuses are ok, specially the last song - Red man.
