4 stars Devotees of vinyl will appreciate this as a supplement to 'The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack' LP, as this includes several re-recorded versions of tracks from that recording. It also features a different version of 'Daddy, Where Did I Come From?' which was released later on 'Ars Longa Vita Brevis'.

I adore these early Nice recordings in spite of the poor vocals, back when the band had an actual guitarist. The songs were shorter, focused, and leaned somewhat towards psych. The condensed version of 'Amercia' presented here is terrific.

For those who insist prog was born in 1969 with the release of 'In The Court of the Crimson King' should hear what Mr. Keith Emerson was up to in 1967... hail to the true King! A pre- cursor to the greatness to come.

DonE | 4/5 |
