Many, many yonks ago I bought this, in vinyl, when it was first released here (UK) in the early seventies..My LP has long ago been lost somewhere in the melee of time, probably enjoying life as a fruit-bowl somewhere by now, but when I saw I could buy it on CD it initiated excitory flashbacks so I thought I'd get it for old times sake...lordy they were interestin' times back then (40 years now!) and my 'state of mind' certainly ain't what it used to be but this album brought some of it rushing back..a bit like some demon smackin' me round the mush...not kind, but heartening somehow..Heartening to know that such things really did exist and, in fact, still do..
Perhaps again, its just not fair to review this kind of music in a 'sober' condition but, for me, this is remarkable music and difficult to compare with anything much else either at that time or now..Not so sophisticated as more modern experimental or 'trance' styles such as The Orb for instance or any of the Ibiza 'dream-house' stuff but nonetheless quite intoxicating in its own laid-back, uncommercial way. An album that belongs to a different time and place really, both in a 'linear' and 'non-linear' sense, and one that I cannot, for the life of me, objectify outside of earlier and much more interesting times..
