Ping Pong

About Time, Emiliana 5022, 1969

Ping Pong, Spark SRLP 246, 1973
CD: Mellow (MMP 200), 1994

A very obscure group of studio musicians that released two albums, both of which are super rare these days. The first had a lot of flute in the early Jethro Tull vein. The second album is a schizophrenic mixture of pop songs and really great, Canterbury-influenced vocal jazz-rock. For this reason it's hard to make a final judgement.
