Having bought this on vinyl in the 1970s I've been looking forward to its official release on CD for many years, so was delighted that its time has finally come. It's a great album, better than Amaryllis, which was actually recorded at the same time, with a view to a double album release. The first side is heavier, the Dylanesque Hymn For Sylvia and the dark He Who Knows All being standout tracks. Later tracks - the second side - include a light hearted piece of Lewis Carroll, a couple of softer folk songs by Angie Rew, Carolyn Davis' beautifully sung Purple Hazy Melancholy, and the title track, surely David McNiven's greatest composition. And yet... I'm disappointed. The sound is flat; there's no atmosphere, no guts to this recording. I don't know who transferred it to CD, but my vinyl copy, which I listen to on tape, still sounds better than this after nearly forty years. A shame, but don't let this put you off hearing this brilliant, forgotten classic!
