A rare, sought after and heavy UK psychedelic album from a short-lived young Edinburgh trio, released in 1970. It was taped in a single twelve-hour stint in London that December. Supported by David McNiven from Bread, Love and Dreams who contributed the few lyrics, this album is an astonishing debut. Some real spacy guitar work with Eastern influences and a pounding bass with frenetic percussion. Although most of the reviews you can read are too unanimous enthusiastic for myself. I must admit that some parts of the record are a bit boring. So only four stars.
