This is a friendly warning: Ben, a British 'prog' band from 1971 with one s/t album, is considered collectible in certain circles as a rare Vertigo record. It is largely plodding and repetitive with forgettable jazz jams, stoned rock beats, endless noodling and Doors delirium. The few nice moments of flute and piano don't save it, but you can save your money.

Yes, I've heard a track from this. It was a fairly tedious jazz jam that didn't intrigue me to hear the rest of it...
