5 stars Unless your either very lucky or well heeled you are unlikely to be able to afford this highly sought after collectors piece and will have to be content with the CD. Never mind the CD is excellent. This LP has a very strange and cold sound, most especially the vocal. For a progressive album it really has more in common with the work of bands like Gong and hawkwind, and certainly would fit into any ones acid rock collection perfectly. The Music could be termed as Jazz but doesn't fit catorgizing well, certainly at times it rocks. The Sax's are excellent . I have read a number of reviews who have mistakenly assumed that this Robert Calvert here is the same man who fronted Hawkwind during their early years. This is not however the case, and this Robert Calvert has also worked with Gilli smyth of mothergong .Anna Meek's Vocal are what gives this band its very unique and somewhat disturbing feel. The compositions are all good and well executed. Most rare progressive albums don't deliver the goods, when you consider that poor sales was responsible in many case's for an LP rarity this is hardly surprising. However this is far from the case with this and caterpillars debut both remaining interesting an worthwhile. I certainly recommend buying the CD as the record is way to expensive. A good addition to any collection I rate this album very highly.
