`The Toes' as they're no doubt known in certain quarters were a band that straddled the divide between psychedelia and progressive rock by dint of the fact that they progressed from the former stage to the latter. The point isn't profound but it is summarised by the difference between this album and the earlier `We Are Ever So Clean'

`If Only For A Moment' catches the progressive wave. For all the musical differences between this album and a lot of Family's output both bands shared an ability to take in all sorts of influences even while they carved out identities that were entirely their own. The multi-faceted `Billy Boo The Gunman' is a case in point in this regard, while not even `Love Bomb' a title under which a lot of bands might have worked only brow-furrowingly earnestly, is lacking a trace of irony.

But for all that there's nothing of the whimsical about `Indian Summer' which is the work of a band right at home with its evolving musical identity. The deft interplay is never showy either, but then it couldn't be in a band as road-tested as these boys were.

So this one's a must for anyone who thinks the latter half of the 1960s is one of the most fertile periods in popular music. That might sound like a case overstated, but rest assured it isn't.

I first heard this album on a cassette lent to me by a friend. There were no details on it...no band name , no tracks. I put it on one day fairly absent mindedly....Well, my reaction was, "what the hell is this?". I've listened to a fair bit of stuff over the years but I didn't have a clue as to who it was. Listening to the lyrics I guessed at the titles of the songs and after a short search on the internet...voila! Blossom Toes."Never heard of them" I thought to myself. Still , I found the album fascinating mainly because it's so hard to define. Sometimes it bludgeons you with heavy guitar riffs , then it goes all introspective and occasionally whimsical. The lyrics are of the time...Peace and the problems of the world but done it a uniquely weird way. I can easily see how it failed to chart in its day. It's just too earnest , too weird, too eclectic. I love it. The sounds are wonderfully retro...the sort of fantastic production that you just don't hear in these days of super duper recording facilities...fuzzed guitars....deep warm bass...great drum sounds..vocals that sometimes sound like Capt Beefheart or Edgar Broughton, sometimes much more intimate. Yes I can see how for some it's a disaster but for me , it's a fantastic bonkers disaster!

Oh buying If only for a moment again after over 40 years was such a blast !! This album was never off my turntable after i got it. Amazingly it still sounds terrific.If you love hippy stoner rock this is a must buy. The twin lead guitars lend a Wishbone Ash vibe at times and some of the tunes have great hooks .The re mastering is top class- the overall sound detailed and punchy . Highlights Listen to the silence and Peace loving man . Only disappointment is the bonus tracks -a selection of outtakes and a single and a live track which is appalingly recorded. Overall though this is a5* re issue.Oh and EXCELLENT sleeve notes and artwork!

I have been looking for this album for forty years. My room-mate and I used to rate a recording of Kiss of Confusion from a John Peel session as one of the best. We both bought we are ever so clean independently, and were bitterly disappointed. So I was rapt to get this limited production of If only for a moment.

I bought this album when it was released in 1969. Hardly anyone I knew had heard of Blossom Toes, but my friends were impressed when they heard the record. I still have it, but alas in very crackly form! I've always remembered Blossom Toes and this album in particular as a lost gem of the era. Some of the lyrics are a little pretentious, as was common among many "underground" bands, but the music still sounds fresh and inventive to me.
It's one of the glories of our present age that almost anything from the past few decades is available, if not as in this case on physical CD, then on You Tube and the like. It was through idly looking on You Tube that I realised that both the Blossom Toes albums have been re-released and that they have a following among people too young to have heard them first time around.
