4 stars Great ,great Auger album with fantastic singer Julie Driscoll! There are many albums in Brian Auger discography, but only few of them include Julie Driscoll voice.

Very innovative sound ( as for 1969) combines heavy Auger Hammond with some bluesy and jazzy drumming and great cold and strong "futuristic" Julie's voice. In fact, we have there one of the earliest jazz-fusion records ever, still with strong blues and r'n'b roots. But Julie's voice is very non-jazzy. In combinations with heavy organ solos it makes very unusual atmosphere.

Not all track contain vocal, only about half of them. And instrumentals are good enough, but songs with Julie all are gem! Some are usual r'n'b, some has bluesy feel, and other are very jazzy. But all make very strange and magic atmosphere, catching you for years to come.

I believe, that some could be unhappy with strong "hippie" feeling from all the music, with domination of "Doors" style music ( "Light My Fire"cover is presented with very unusual Julie's vocal and different rhythmics). But I believe, that that album is one of greatest early jazz-fusion albums of late sixties.
