This album along with "Sunfighter" (1972) represents for me the high point of Paul 'n' Grace's output. The downward move into the shallowness of the ephemeral chart material in the guise of the Starship was a bitter disappointment. Initially released in 1973 on the Grunt label, incidentally the original idea was to call the label Love, Beauty or some such title. As a consequence of the hassles with RCA, the oil shortage, steep hike in prices and other difficulties they settled on Grunt, with the Grunt Man cartoon appearing on the inner sleeve of other lps. "Baron von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun" allegedly Paul and Grace have their mates from The Grateful Dead Jerry Garcia and Mickey Hart together with David Crosby. The Pointer Sisters are on backing vocals on "Fat" "White Boy" is sci-fi "do you come from the earth, do you come from the sky? it's mystical. Jack Traylor's "Flowers of the night" is terrific, that bass line of Chris Ethridge's just listen to it. Jointly they all produce some stunning songs with Grace's percussive piano and the great vocals and harmonies all add up to a brilliant album without a duff track anywhere. An old fanzine, long since departed, used the title of one of the tracks "Universal Copernican Mumbles" as the title of their editorial page an offspring fanzine called Holding Together is of course a track from "Sunfighter" such is the stature of these albums. It is great to see that both albums are now available on CD. I purchased both vinyl albums way back in 1974!(Yes that long ago) and I still regard them in my personal all time top ten favorite albums. Is it possible to award six stars? Someone once said "Either you own it or you owe to yourself to rectify the situation immediately! All I can say is Buy it Now.
