Yup from what little I've heard, and based on the reviews. proto-prog seems more logical than

the Psychedelic/Space Rock  under which they are currently listed .. although the later albums after the late 80s reunion seem to fall into  Indo-prog/Raga rock 

Any one else with any thoughts on this?

I have both their original albums- 'Sea Shanties' and 'High Tide'- and love both, full of great violin/guitar duels, and excellent Jim Morrison style vocals. They are kind of reminiscent of King Crimson or East Of Eden to these ears, and they evolved from a mid to late 60s psychedelic act called The Misunderstood.

Legendary band whose style reminds to bands like BLOSSOM TOES , SKIP BIFFERTY , or, MISUNDERSTOOD ( TONY HILL played guitar in this band). Their sound mix exoticism, psychedelia, hard,folk,melodic moments and classicism.

Between the two albums released by LIBERTY label, i prefere "HIGH TIDE", their second, which is more beautifully finished.
