3.0 out of 5 stars average 60's rock, listenable & ok 30 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
From a collector and connoisseur of trippy psychedelia:
Patchy, country rock, with a gentle nod in the direction of psyche/prog-rock. There's so much better out there, and none of the tracks here are essential for me, although none are truly awful. I actually think the extra tracks are ok, with only one of those being among the 4 weakest tracks. If you like 60's mildly jazzy country prog rock, then this may be for you, but if, like me, you like a more lysergic feel, old or new, then why not try out Fifty foot hose (Cauldron), Lothar & The Hand People / The Spoils Of War / The Moving Sidewalks / Bill Holt / Zodiac / Twink / Trance Tripping / Beta Band (3Eps) / 3rd Rail / A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Exploding / WCPAEB (West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band) / USA / Timothy Leary / KLF (Chill Out album) / Broadcast & the Focus Group - nearly all available on Amazon last time I looked. Also, try to get hold of the 12 disc `Psychedelic Reaction' set (CDs 1-3 especially) - it includes many more trippy versions of 60's stuff that often appears on other collections. Happy hunting! I hope this review was helpful to you :)

Format:Vinyl
At long last one of the Crown Jewels of the UK 60's psychedelic scene is properly reissued on vinyl in it's original gatefold sleeve. Featuring beautiful front cover artwork by legendary UK/Australian psychedelic artist Martin Sharp Mighty Baby's first album was made by a band that had evolved from mod soul band The Action who briefly became a fixture on the UK hippy underground. As Mighty Baby they recorded two great albums and appeared on the triple Glastonbury Fayre album. This their first record from 1969 (originally on Head Records) mixes progressive and west coast psychedelic influences with eastern vibes and some folksy/country rock touches. It's a wonderful album very much of its time by a band that were really part of the UK underground...

5.0 out of 5 stars Britain's Grateful Dead? 18 Mar 2014
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
For a long time this album was unavailable and, in line with the old maxim of absence making the heart grow fonder, its reputation grew to the extent that that it was perceived as Britain's lost psych masterpiece. Today's critics are made of sterner stuff though, and existing Amazon reviews of the album vary from the relatively under-impressed - "Average 60's rock, listenable & OK", and, "by no means a classic", to the positive, ecstatic even - "one of the crown jewels of the UK 60's psychedelic scene".

My own view comes somewhere in between those two extremes. I was lucky enough to see the band a couple of times at the Roundhouse way back when, and can confirm that their natural mode of operation was to state the theme of a song and then settle into a jam typically of over ten minutes duration, before returning to restate the theme once or twice before the end. So what, you may say; wasn't that was most "psych" bands did? True, but the difference was that, (a), their songs were usually more than just frames on which to hang the jamming, and, (b), the jamming when it came, was usually structured and inventive rather than experimental / ground-breaking / repetitive / aimless, depending on which adjective you prefer and how much you'd been imbibing.

And I guess if you were going to make comparisons it would to the Dead of "Live/Dead" which also came out in 1969, or to Quicksilver as evidenced by that band's first couple of albums. No other major Brit psych band evoked such comparisons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mighty, Mighty Baby 4 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm giving this CD the 5 big Stars because I just love the album, and I'd recommend it to anyone who listens to "progressive" music. Great songs, individual musicianship, and a coherence that keeps me playing it. Although Mighty Baby is a product of the late-60's / early-70's, and the music/lyrics often reflect these times, the strong jazz influence within the band has helped to create music which endures and continues to have an appeal today. Although I would hesitate to call this music Fusion Jazz it was Mighty Baby's creative and experimental music that ultimately turned me on to the jazz genre. Just buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best thing they did 6 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
In theory, the singles released as The Action, now collected on "The Ultimate Action" are the defining moments of this aggregate. I beg to differ - whilst the Action created some superb pop singles, nothing they released compares to the sum of this LP. The tracks range from Psych to Country but everything sound like Mighty Baby - there isn't a bad track.

Big Beat have added 5 rare tracks that were recorded before this LP but didn't see the light of day until the mid 80s. Stylistically, they differ somewhat but they make a worthwhile rather than essential addition.

Mighty Baby made an inferior follow up: Jug Of Love and contributed a track to Glastonbury. They also backed Reg King (the old Action vocalist) on his debut LP.

5.0 out of 5 stars And they played live last night! 14 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
Completely agree with the previous reviewers - if this had been an American band the album would be in Top 100 polls. Such a tight and inventive band. It's hard to define just what style it is they are playing in as they fuse rock, psych, power pop and jazz fusion so seamlessly.

And get this on 13th April 2006 - 35 years after last performing - Martin Stone, Roger Powell and Mike Evans reformed in London as Might Baby with Matt Deighton of Mother Earth taking the Alan King role. They were bloody fantastic, playing most of the first album and encoring with a long improvisation on Coltrane's India. Real high energy stuff that knocked today's bands into a cocked hat. Martin, Roger and Mike had lost none of their skills - Martin said on stage 'this is coming easier than we expected!' and how right he was as he ripped out one stinging solo after another. A marvellous night at the Rocket in Holloway Road. If they join the summer festival circuit go and catch them - ooo-wee!

4.0 out of 5 stars Different!
Had this recommended and it's okay.
Pleasant to listen to and fills all the needs for the era.
I like it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good psych-rock LP, but by no means a classic.
OK, it's petty good, but it's also pretty pedestrian; nowhere near the same standard as "Deep Purple", "Aoxomoxoa", or "Volunteers"; all released in the same year. Read more

This, their debut LP could not be any better than it is. The musicianship is superb, and the songs are the real late 60's thing, well composed and believable. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost but not quite...
An interesting album but certainly not one of the best I've heard from the era. That's not necessarily a bad thing as the late 60s / early 70s was a very musically rich period. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A Genuinely Good Album from the Late 60's
This definitely an album that has quality throughout - as the previous reviewer states some of the lyrics are a bit dated but then again it's also part of their charm. Read more
