4 stars Yes this is excellent progressive material from the mid 1970's. A stunning LP package too with full storylines and inner booklet. I have to also add that the narration by Viv Stanshall is perfect, leaving a hint of the fact that this rendition of Peter And The Wolf was delivered by a liberal bunch of great rock musicians. It has humour, great narration and musically it is very very slick. I am not sure if this lost jewel is on CD yet, thankfully my Vinyl version is still in mint condition. The drumming by Collins and the late Cozy Powell is remarkable. the guitar work by Chris Spedding and Alvin Lee really works a treat. The music attributed to the various scenes is well delivered and accurate. Just listen to ' Cat Dance' and Viv Stanshall's satisfied burps on ' Cat and Duck'. As I say rare precious events like these put down on vinyl or CD are hard to come by and this work is a real treasure.
