4 stars I'm cheating here - I don't have this EP, but all three tracks appear on the Aztec re-release of Goolutionites, so I've at least heard all the music. Nothing here was completely new - the title track was on the Morning Of the Earth soundtrack album, while the other two tracks had been released as a single in 1971. "Bali Waters" is a gorgeous piece of music. Almost entirely instrumental (other than a hummed chorus), it spotlights Richard Lockwood's flute, and is supported by a very sympathetic strong arrangement from Peter Jones. It's one of the best tracks they ever recorded. 'Got A Feeling" and "My Father Told Me" are simpler songs, not so overtly proggy, although they do benefit from Lockwood's woodwinds and from Tim Gaze's more structured guitar playing.

Besides Bali Waters, two further tracks were recorded for the Morning Of The Earth soundtrack album. Those three tracks represent the best work of Tamam Shud and, along with this EP, point to the potential masterpiece that would have been Tamam Shud's third album, had they been allowed to record it.
