5 stars After all these years, I finally got this obscurity. I never quite understood its origin, and then from this board and others, realized that it is, just what it says it is - a live, in the studio, pre the first album "Dzyan." Sort of a trial run.

Well, for me, this is just fabulous, as it exposes the future nicely and brings us a true picture of what made Dzyan so magical and mysterious. The odd singing, that fits perfectly. The spacey feel, yet no keyboards. And that sax, wow, I just love sax when it's mixed like this into rock music (VDGG the best.)

I would love to have seen this being recorded, as it's quite professional for a "warm up" to their first release, and although spontaneous, not in anyway, unprofessional.

Real musicians creating accessible, experimental space / fusion / rock. Bravo.
