Format: Audio CD
Brought together out of the remnants of Steampacket, a rhythm and blues outfit whose other members included Rod Stewart and Long John Baldry; Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger and The Trinity would go on to become the ultimate proponents of Psychedelic Jazz. Their finest moment together would come in 1967, with the release of their debut, entitled Open; it really is a unique piece of 1967's London this one.

Open begins with a sawing noise (as in a man cutting wood), which than goes into some marvellous lounge action, this is Brian Auger and The Trinity, perfect instrumental stuff with a brass section thrown in, In and Out is followed with another Auger instrumental, Isola Natale is again another loungesque tune which is just fabulous and well worth the money alone.

But this album really kicks in by track three; Black Cat begins with a cuckoo clock followed by Auger screaming in a count in, and BANG! We're off! This song is by far my favourite from this album and is just staggering stuff, perhaps one of the best songs from the sixties. I'm not really sure how I can even begin to do this song justice by just using boring old words, but let's just say that after one listen you may need some help to pick up your chin from the floor, glorious, wonderful and magnificent all rolled into one.

We're kind of brought down to earth by a lovely solo piano instrumental from Auger on Lament for Miss Baker, this is lovely sweet stuff but probably only goes to demonstrate how truly strange and odd this album is at times, for from here it goes into the six minute progressive exotic jazz rampage of Goodbye Jungle Telegraph.

I have the original LP called 'Jools' with the same cover photo as advertised for this CD. The CD which arrived has all the same tracks but a different cover photo. I believe the seller should show the right cover photo for the CD being sold. I know this is a minor point (which some may consider petty) but any product should be advertised accurately.

Open the 60's 8 April 2000
By William Beith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I discovered this record the year it was released. Auger was a wonderful hamond organ player and Driscoll was a beautiful singer. I'm still in love with her today. (If you read this email me Julie I own a studio and want to record you! ) This was a defining moment in London pop music.....honest and standing the test of time. Good musical presence, excellent recording quality, first half of the song Brian Auger (listen to Black Cat) and the second half Julie vocals. Reminds me of super session with Al Kooper (the horns). This album DEFINES the swinging London sound of the 60's. Others in this 60's timeless vein include Love Forever Changes, Moby Grape (the first) and Buffalo Springfield (the first) and HP Lovecraft (the studio albums (Britonic Records CD# BRTACD00010)Enough of this... just listen and hear the peak of the Julie/Brian collaboration.

Great vintage groove rock, geat sounding CD 8 Feb. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These comments are about the 1998 "Open" remaster on the disconforme label: ASIN B0000256CV.

In some markets this album is known as "Jools" by Julie Driscoll; no mention of Brian or the Trinity. In others, it's known as "Open" by Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & the Trinity.

I haven't got much to say about Julie Driscoll's unforgettable singing, or Brian Auger's amazing organ (snicker). If you know them, you want this. If not, give a listen and prepare to be astounded. Though these tracks are older than many readers, they're not dated but sound as fresh and modern as today.

This disc has been beautifully remastered, *without* the heavy-handed compression, limiting and EQ that are all too common. Dynamics and tonal balance are gloriously unmolested. Be assured, this disc sounds great, even taking into account that it's an analog recording from 1968.

If you want a copy of "Open" aka "Jools", this is the one you want

Been a long time fan 4 Jan. 2013
By RayBlahBlah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Perhaps any review by me would not serve you well, I have always been a fan of Jools Driscoll and sought out this CD specifically for a good rendition of Season of the Witch. I first heard this song whilst living in Rome - this guy who had gone to McGill University in Montreal and had absconded to Rome to avoid the draft played it for me. I had heard Donovan's version and was not quite swayed as I was with this version. I had this album on vinyl a long time ago and...well, I wore it out. At one point this "collector" convinced me it was a good idea to let him have the record for $15 bucks as-is, and I made the deal. I just needed a dose of Jools one day and as a result here I am telling you how good the music is. Plus there are some other really good tunes on the disc. If you like this you might also like Judy Collins's disc "Day in the Life".
Fine record from the 1960's finally reissued. Sound is GOOD. 2 April 2015
By A. Oltsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Favorite record from the 1960's finally on a CD. I've searched for decades! The two opening tracks, instrumentals with fine guitar and organ work are completely worth the cost of the CD. Completely infectious music. Rest of the CD is a mixture of sly delivery (Julie Driscoll with Season of the Witch), romp-it-up whoopers (Black Cat)+, lovely keyboard playing by Brian Auger, and other material I'm less fond of. Good good record.

psychadelic pagan feel 20 April 2002
By SHARON KELLY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
THIS IS A FANTASTIC CD. IT HAS AN INFINITE HIPPY FEEL COUPLED WITH PAGAN UNDERTONES. IT HAS A REAL JAZZ FEEL AND YET IT IS UNPRETENSIOUS. I ORIGINALLY DISCOVERED THIS PIECE OF MUSIC AT A CAR BOOT SALE AND HAD TO BUY THE ORIGINAL.
FOR ANYONE WHO HAS SEEN THE MOVIE HAIRSPRAY, THE TRACK WITH THE MASHED POTATO DANCE FEEL IS DEFINATELY ON THERE, SEE IF YOU CAN SPOT IT.
I LIKE SEASON OF THE WITCH, WAY AHEAD OF ITS TIME IN TERMS OF THE CURRENT HORROR MOVIE MUSIC GENRE. WITH REFERENCE TO THIS CD, I HAVE ONLY ONE THING TO SAY, KEEP YOUR EARS OPEN!
