4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking UK Psych, 26 Jun 2007

Art evolved out of the VIPs and they became Spooky Tooth after the addition of Gary Wright. This album captures them on the crest of a wave - they have moved on from basic beat and blues to embrace psychedelia. The album is a great mix of out and out psych weirdness ( "I think I am going weird" ), to bluesy rock ( "Come on Up" ) and the absolute psych classic "Supernatural Fairy Tales" with its phasing and driving guitars and beat. I can't think of too many UK albums from this time that equal this release for quality and listenability. It has good production too so the songs have retained their power. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Art before Spooky Tooth, 28 Dec 2011

An obscure beat group from Carlisle, VIPs, recorded few undistinguished 45s for "Island" before mutating into short-lived "Art", which recorded only one album for the same label. But that album was produced by Guy Stevens (Procol Harum, Mott the Hoople, Who, Small Faces, Rolling Stones, and, finally and later - "London Calling" of Clash).
A very decent album, quite unusual early British psychedelia, rough sometimes, but talented and inventive, and with good assortment of melodies on offer. Do you want to know "What's That Sound"? It's not only an interesting cover of Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth", it's the sound of future unborn yet Hot Chocolate. The title track is heavy and hard edged psychedelia. "Come On Up", "Brothers, Dads and Mothers" - classic combination of hard-rock and prog. "Flying Anchors" - acoustic, trippy and meditative.
All in all, "Art" was very promissing early prog/psych outfit - which lived to high expectations, because the same year (1967) when their debut album was released, they passed away - and resurrected. As Spooky Tooth this time.
The album is a must for every fan of Spooky Tooth and early British prog/psych

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't think of a title, 15 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Supernatural Fairytales (Audio CD)
The only reason I bought this was because Tony Iommi said that it influenced them. I am not disappointed, it's cracking and you can absolutely see that it was an influence on Sabbath. It's pretty typical of the late sixties rock/psychedelia/`summer of love' type stuff I think.
