5 stars A fantasist and amazing musical essay for brilliant electric guitar solos, raga-psych and bluesy rock. Without any doubt the best release from Mick Hutchinson / Andy Clark collaboration. "A=mh2" is covered by gorgeous improvised guitar parts in a rather technical style. Hutchinson's guitar inspiration is accompanied by acoustic percussions, sometimes punctuated by piano / flute arrangements. "Improvisation on an Indian Scale" culminates the album: an extended 13 minutes improvisation for an intense fuzzy-folky-raga incantation. The guitar solo section is sustained by a solid rhythmical guitar / percussion accompaniement. The leading theme is played by furious, trance-like and cyclical" electric guitar solos: an almost "esoteric" sounding jam. "Acapulco Gold" is an electro-acoustic dominated guitar composition with a nice, catchy sense of "introspection" and some furious "flamenco" like accents. The jazzy and groovy "Improvisation on a Modal Scale" is the least interesting moment despite really nice guitar sections. "Impromptu in 'E' Minor" is a gentle folky improvisation around the piano and some obsessive guitar sequences. "Textures in 3/4" features an almost "Celtic", folkish guitar improvisation with a definitely cool electric melody. A rarity and really impressive, inspired late 60's project, historically speaking this is a must have!
