By Mr P VINE VOICE on 24 Jan 2002
Format: Audio CD
A fusion of jazz, rock and Indian sounds. Most of it comes off. An interesting array of musicians to say the least. Tony Williams, Gary Husband, Shankar, Zakir Hussain, Vikku Vinayakram, Scott Thunes, John Good, Mark Robertson, Deborah Winters and Jack Bruce.
Composer/guitarist Anthony Hindson plays both acoustic and electric guitars with a great passion and intensity.
The legendary Bruce tonsils get a workout on the glorious title track. The vocal line does not sound too easy but Jack sings it great.
He also sings on the love song Kathleen. A great vocal performance again but the song is a bit twee and sentimental for me.
Deborah Winters sings the third vocal track she doesnt quite cope with the compexities, with the song somehow not quite blending with the music.
Some wonderful instrumentation over the other tracks. Some bits really swing with rollicking percussion and violin. Just a couple of quibbles but, in the main, a feast for the lugs.

One of the most incredible albums I've ever heard ! 27 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album was recommended to me by 2 friends. One, a professional guitarist, is a long time Jack Bruce devotee. The other, a life long eastern music afficianado ( she writes for the international music press ). I wasn't particularly interested in either genre until I had a listen to this fabulous recording. The virtuosity is astounding. The compositions as diverse and luscious as anything I've ever heard. I was completely overwhelmed and have listened to it every day, discovering something new and wonderful with each playing. Jack Bruce's voice is certainly one of the finest ever to be recorded. Add to that, the infinitely exquisite jazz rhythms of Tony Williams, the haunting swirls of Shankar's omnipotent violin and Anthony Hindson's masterful work on thirteen string guitar and you have a deeply moving, intensely rocking fusion of Eastern and Western musical delights. Be certain to check out the song " The Whole Romantic Affair ( sung by the honey-throated Deborah Winters ). Its one of those you hear and ask yourself ..." where are songs like this at Grammy Time" ? Get this disc, you'll be touched forever by it.

A Haunting Gem 27 Feb 2000
By Tyler Suchman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Anthony Hindson, when asked to describe the album, called it "Turn of the century rock and raga...perhaps." While there certainly are historical references, the album sounds fresh and explores new territory. "Strewth" is a highlight with stellar musicianship from Shankar and Zakir Hussain. "Sunjog Variation" conjures up the fondest memories of the dearly departed Tony Williams. This is an album for the adventurous soul.
