Is it just me, or does the alien on the cover look a little stoned?

In a decade (1970's) filled with obscure prog gems here's another one to check out. It's one of those albums that kind of fell down the memory hole until it was re-mastered and re-released in 2004 and may still be down the hole.

This one probably won't work for you if your taste in prog is fairly narrow, but there is a way, there is a way, there is a way... There's a lot going on here and much to appreciate. Spacey, thanks to Bayette's synthesizer work and the lyrical themes, funky, jazzy, and yes it rocks. Might have even gotten some airplay.

Unconventional as a progressive progressive rock album, but beats a lot of the schlock that would come out of many of the established '70's progressive rock artists. Top notch musicianship and songwriting with a pop flair.
