Format: Audio CD
'Tread softly on my dreams..." implore Czar on the titular opener to their cult 1970 release on Philips' Fontana label. Alas, the record-buying public were to trample all over them. The reason lies not in the quality on offer but its lack of constancy. When silly English pop group Giles, Giles & Fripp mutated into the awesome, continent-spanning King Crimson, and overnight defined a genre with multi-selling 'Court of The Crimson King', music majors raced off with wallets open to find more of the same. Some made the jump successfully, others less so. Tuesday's Children recorded a string of poppy psych singles in the 60s before tackling the latest thing with this album. At a glance, it augured well with a suitably heavy re-brand and out-of-it imagery. But a few tracks in and the roots are showing. Despite the best efforts of heavy Hammond organ and psych guitar work-outs, the album begins to drift, the crushed velvet of Czar falling down to reveal the paisley of Tuesday's Children. Lacking the grip of Fripp, Czar had tiptoed to a genre that required drama, innovation, and sheer balls. However, in the age of revisionism, this is entertaining listening with a good read in the 12-page booklet and eight bonus tracks including their only single 'Oh Lord I'm Getting Heavy'. Flip side 'Why Don't We Be A Rock And Roll Band' proffered advice they unwisely took as previously unreleased demos recorded after the album are closer to West Coast country/blues rock. America having more than a few bands already tackling this genre, Czar were despatched in the people's revolution of 1971. As second division prog goes, this is worth the reasonable roubles charged by Sunbeam for a nicely-packaged reissue.

Total classic mellotron soaked proto- prog rock from these English sessioners.Vague hints of King Crimson with vocal delivery slighty similar to Arthur Brown with a sense of melachony throughout. Some nice slightly hestiant spindly guitar work adds nicely to the epic pieces like 'tread softly' and 'morning'.'follow me' is more in the psych rock pop vein with hints of Procol Harum. Defintely worth a look if into the whole psych into prog movement from 68-71.Vinyl is worth a bomb and the sleeve artwork is straight out of some 1969 Book of Horror Stories.
