I have to admit I have only owned a copy of this classic album for a couple of years, and this review consists of information lifted directly from the CD notes plus my impressions from repeated listening. Before its reissue by Dropout records this album had been fiendishly hard to find and collectors would pay ridiculous sums of money to secure a copy. It's not hard to see why, for several reasons: it was recorded early in the careers of Dave Stewart and Steve Hillage, who both went on to become giants of the British progressive and psychedelic scenes. What's more, it has all the trappings of an underground classic: recorded and mixed in an afternoon, cover art done by Dave Stewart with a felt-tip pen, sleeve notes consisting of fake biographies of the band under assumed names (the reason for this was that Stewart, Campbell and Brooks were already under contract to Decca), and released in tiny quantities, later to become available on bootleg. Finally, It is a somewhat eclectic album, the opening tracks securely in the Caravan/Soft Machine mould of organ-led, lyrical progressive pop, moving on through Cream/Led Zeppelin inspired blues, ending up with a protracted psychedelic excursion on the final track. Production? What production? Never mind, the rough edges add to the individuality and appeal of the album. Furthermore, the brilliance of the playing shines through. "Garden of Earthly Delights" has nice booming bass and jazzy drums providing the foundation for Stewart's doomy organ sound. Campbell and Hillage's vocals are somewhat trite, with the feel of an Elizabethan sonnet, but not quite enough to make you cringe. Hillage's superb solo, sounding like Cream-vintage Clapton, makes up for it, though.Read more ›

Forgotten miracle of early progressive rock, rescued from obscurity by revival of the interest in the music of the end 60s. "Arzachel" (named after medieval Arab astronomer), in real life was known as Uriel (name of one of the archangels), psychedelic blues-influenced band from 1968, which died young.
"Arzachel" (or Uriel, if you wish) is better known to music aficionados because of Steve Hillage (later of Egg, Gong and System 7 fame) who appears on the album under the moniker Simeon Sasparella. Respectively, Clive Brooks became Basil Dowling, Mont Campbell turned into Njerogi Gategaka, and Dave Stewart became Sam Lee-Uff - all because of legal matters.
Apart from Steve Hillage involvement, "Arzachel" blessed us with the title track - "Garden of Earthly Delights" (so named after famous triptych by Hieronymus Bosch), which since then inspired innumerable books, articles and compilations dedicated to psychedelia.
The album contains what I would call elements of pagan rock mass, with powerful organ-led pieces inspired by church music {"Garden Of Earthly Delights", "Azathoth"*,) and psalm-alike singing (perhaps the voices are not great, but they are pushed to the extreme). Unusual "Leg" starts as another baroque piece, and surprisingly evolves into heavy masterpiece of acid prog. "Clean Innocent Fun" is leaning on blues, and it's easy to feel the similarities with Led Zeppelin. The title of the last track was borrowed from psychiatry, and I am afraid that this choice was justified: the musicians indulged themselves in a lengthy orgy of sounds and improvisations (often compared to early Pink Floyd

A True Prog Rock MASTERPIECE !!!
Steve Hillage at his BEST.
A Must own piece of Prog/Psych History in the making before Hillage joined Legends Gong.
