Formerly Pete Brown and his Battered Ornaments. The other guys vocals are not great but its the music that stands out. Very complex but never less than absorbing. Most of the writing credits go to guitarist Chris Spedding and his work is up to his usual impeccable standards. He has so many styles at his finger tips. Other featured soloist is George Nisar Ahmed Khan. Probably not a lot of people bought this in 1970 and probably not a lot of people will buy it now.
Its very, very good though and deserves to be re-visited by anyone who takes their music seriously and does not follow commercial pap.

excellent 8 Dec 2009
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Pete Brown had written words for Cream. He formed his own band, Battered Ornaments, using English jazzmen of the late 1960s. A lot of these guys had worked with Bruce in jazz circles before Cream, worked with him on his Songs for a Tailor, and worked in the group Collusium.

This is pretty song oriented jazz rock with good soling and good writing. The songs are keyboard based and the drumming is excellent.

The album sounds a little flat and thin at times, but this may just be the transfer to CD.

Good progressive rock that is not well known but would be a good pick for anyone who wants to go beyond the obvious in the genre.

Chris Spedding's finest hour before he joined The Wombles 18 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although too "wilfully weird" for John Peel, this has become one of the seminal English underground records of the 1960s.
