4 stars The brainchild of this musical project is Julian Savarin. He was born in Dominica but moved with his family to Britain in the early Sixties. He was a writer and a keyboard player and longing to fullfill his musical ideas. Julian recruited his own band with John Dover on bass, Del Watkins on guitar, Jack Drummond on drums and Cathy Pruden on vocals. They started rehearsing and gigging round London as Julian's Treatment. In june '70 the label Youngblood released their first album "A Time Before This". Two years later Julian was approached by Birth records to make a new album. Only bass player John Dover came from the old line-up, other musicians of Julian's new band were Nigel Jenkins (guitar), Roger Odell (drums) and Lady JoMeek (vocals). And in '73 the second album "Waiters On The Dance" came out, credited by Julian J. Savarin (nowadays a famous SF writer!).

The music on this second album sounds very dated and relatively simple but the atmospheres are often very compelling, due to the warm and powerful voice of Lady JoMeek (with echoes from Annie Haslam but with more emotion), the omnipresent floods of Hammond organ, some majestic flute - and violin Mellotron drops, fiery guitar play and a fluent rhythm-section. The album contains six compositions, all are on the compilation A Time Before This .. Plus except the track Dance Of The Golden Flamingoes (wonderful interplay between Melotron and Hammond organ), that's why I have bought this CD!

Julian's Treatment their melodic and tasteful sound has echoes from Earth & Fire, Rare Bird and Bram Stoker, blended with some psychedelic undertones and harder-edged guitar work. In my opinion this is one of the most overlooked gems on Prog Archives!

4 stars Julian Jay Savarin natural born Dominican but moved to GB later on may be considered another named that gone under the radar in prog circles maybe because of lack of exposure or bad management. One of the proeminent figures from ealry '70 in prog both if we speak as a solo artis or with Julian Treatment, he is not regarded among well known composers and keyboard playes of his time. The one and only album under his name saw the light in 1971 named Waiters on the dance and is an excellent album all around, better then many well known releases from that era. He was more known as a writer, specially in Japan , for publishing novels. Back to the album, there is a lot to like here, fuzzy guitars going into psychedelic prog terrytory, lots of mellotron and inventive keyboards, very nice vocal parts, in some places is similarity with lets say dutch Earth & Fire. Al in all more then great and quite underrated in my opinion, all pieces standing as almost excellent with a plus on opening Child of the Night 1 & 2, an 8 plus min of pure delight. 4 stars easy, and recommended one of the better psych/prog albums from early years of that decade..
