I purchased the "Madman" 7 inch single in my youth - and now I know why I didn't buy the LP at the time. I think this is pretty average psychedelia, with no particular musicianship apparent. "Madman" remains an interesting track. I can imagine being 'out of my head' and listennig to "This Island", and the sitar is used to pleasant effect. The track "Four Firemen" however is utter drivel (or should that be dribble?). I rate the album as OK (3 stars) because it fills a gap in my collection, but I doubt in reality that I will ever select it to play again. The best bit is the wobbly writing on the cover which does bring back memories of those heady days in the late 60s. However the wobbly writing on the back doesn't do much towards improving the readability of the track listings as age and poor eyesight creeps in!

One of the great 60's bands with a great light show to match! Psychedelia at its best. 'Mad man running through the fields' (great backwards tape sounds) & 'This Island' (sea waves and sitar) are outstanding. Beg, borrow or burn yourself a copy ASAP.

The sudden arrival of British psychedelia threw up some real oddities, but surely none odder than Dantalian's Chariot. Like a few other established acts - the Beatles, the Stones, Donovan, the Pretty Things and even the homely Hollies - the experienced music industry players comprising Zoot Money's Big Roll Band drastically changed tack to embrace the new counterculture, yet none did it with such apparent commitment, nor yet produced such a questionably genuine psychedelic product. The extensive psych credentials of "Madman Running Through The Fields" rest on its stunning sound effects - whooshing backwards cymbals, floating flutes, rippling textured guitar figures - as much as on its lysergic lyrics, but underneath all this is a tautly-constructed pop song, not one of your rambling improvs a la "Interstellar Overdrive". Of the other songs, some follow the contemporary British whimsical personal-narrative psych groove: "Fourpenny Bus Ride" and "Four Firemen" could have come from the Kinks or S.F. Sorrow-era Pretty Things. Others seem purely ersatz psychedelia; the instrumental "This Island" sounds like a Morricone spaghetti-western outtake lugubriously decorated with Andy Somers' electric sitar, whilst "Sun Came Bursting Through My Cloud" is a winsome acoustic pop song penned, along with two other tracks, by the staff writing team of Tony Colton and Roy Smith. Only the thunderous "World War Three" really approaches "Madman" as a psych/pop tour-de-force. And although the musicianship is excellent throughout, Zoot's brassy, bluesy vocals simply don't fit the psych template. Good quality stuff, then, and good curiosity value, but IMHO dubiously psychedelic.

Originally released in 1967, as this was the lesser known psychedelic band's sole effort. Tunes here that I liked best were "Madman Running Through The World" (first heard this track on the 'Nuggets II' 4-CD box set), "World War Three", the uplifting "Fourpenny Bus Ride" and the tripping "Soma" (nice sitar work). Line-up: Tony Colton-vocals, (future Police member) Andy Summers-guitar & sitar, Pat Donaldson-bass & vocals and Zoot Money-piano, organ & vocals. Should definitely do a lot for fans of Them, the Animals, Troggs and the Hollies. A good pick.
