This is one of the most sought-after British progressive albums. The London-based outfit were pretty competent musicians and the material on the album ranges from beat-psych through to jazz-blues. The highlights include the Hendrix-influenced "Closing In On Me" and "Wings Of The Morning". The former track has also resurfaced on "Psychedelic Salvage Co. Vol. 1" (LP & CD). Apparently it comes from a tape of the band when they appeared on a TV show.
