3 stars Greg Sneddon is a totaly unknown musician from mid '70's from Australia. He released one album in 1975 issued at Mushroom records and then disappered into shadow. The album named Mind stroll is a great melodic progressive rock not far in aproach like his country fellows done in that time Sebastia Hardie. Full of synth and mellotron passages , piano arrangements and a great voice from Dayle Alison makes from this album a pleasure to listen. The perfect example of greatness is the title track, nearly 10 min of beauty haunting piano and excellent musicianship, the best from here for sure. Gentle arrangements melted with those who are more uptempo in a great unit. So, a forgotten album, that had a japanese bootleg re issue Poor House I guess is the name of the label, but with a harsh recording status.

Great guitars interluded with piano, all musicians done a good job for sure. Well from me 3.5 stars, I got the vinyl accidentaly, looking for totaly diffrent band in a store in first place, and among the vinyls was this one, the seller said is ok but nothing to talk about, so I grab it without hesitation knowing that on internet the vinyl is quite expensive, I got it almost for free, anyway cheap as hell. Fans of prog must take some spins, worth it, at some point the album remind me of some parts from Yes or Greenslade. Greg Sneedon had a brief staying in australian band Men at work and aswell drummer Jerry H. Speiser joyned the band remaining few good years.

The two dominant elements to me are, on the one hand, a strong commercial soft-rock/pop edge, particularly to the fore on the ballad "Take It Slow And Easy", and the main themes of the title track, and "Concerto For Two H ...
