Decca really were dreadful at wasting talent. They seemed not to value anything or have any vision of acts lasting more than six months. The Zombies and Them were two bands, who were pushed too hard to the point of break up, who clearly had a lot of talent and longevity in them.

This album is a very rare thing, it is a psychedelic influenced album that still sounds fresh and vibrant where others, although they may be charming, are a bit dated and irrelevant. Produced by Bill Wyman this album is full of little bits of whimsy mixed with some wonderful songs. Perhaps the Rolling Stone should have given him the same role on Their Satanic Majesties Request.

The reason you have not seen more of The End is that Decca, in their "wisdom", left this album on the shelf for 18 month by which time tastes had moved on to heavier power trio orientated rock and progressive rock. The End just broke up following poor album sales.

If you have come across this album then you really do need it, This is a genuine "Forgotten Classic" and I cna not think of a reason why anyone would not love it, other than them having a total lack of taste judgement and sanity.

Overall (for me), this is a great album of the 67 era, though it does not sum up the 'psychedelic' era -a much abused term to be sure - it merely forms a part of it. Think of this not as the far out/trippy stuff, as found in Cyrus Faryar Cosmic Sounds / Zodiac, Twink's album Think Pink, and here and there on other recordings ( such as parts of Pink Floyd, The United States Of America, Steve Morgen, Kaleidoscope-uk, Gong, Millennium, Tomorrow, Group 1850, Silver Apples, Strawberry Alarm Clock, etc), think of it not as knees up psychedelic - primarily Small Faces, Traffic (some Beetles too). Nor is it soulful psychedelic - Small faces again. It is rather a pleasant mixture of soft psychedelic, rock harmony type stuff. Think of (and this is a good thing) Kaleidoscope (the British band, not the US one), Small Faces (when not psyched out as in Ogden's Nut Gone Flake, or over-soulful as in other stuff by them) or even something by the Kinks perhaps, and you are pretty close. Well, enough of the comparisons, on to the actual recording in question. Certainly worth a listen if you are into any of the aforementioned groups - this is a gem that holds its own against the others. It is definitely an above average offering with great lyrical qualities, and music that undulates nicely from start to finish. Oh, and not forgetting the hilarious trio of Bromley Common, Linen Draper, and Jacob's Bladder - interlude types similar to Cream's Mother's Lament, Gonna Buy Me A Dog by the Monkees or some Cheech and Chong (their track 'Dave' springs to mind)! There are indeed dreamy harmonies (a million miles better than the Zombies), lovely Hammond and harpsichord use as well as the odd sax note, well produced with not a hint of roughness.Read more ›

I saw this album while browsing on a website, it recieved very good reviews.

I ordered it later that day and it arrived the next day.
First listen in I loved it, such a refreshing wave of music that perfectly sums up the British psychedelic scene. This album has everything any fan of the late 60's could ask for; harmonies, dreamy songs, upbeat, uplifting songs.
It's hard to pick certain songs out for special recognition, though if I had to I would say: Under The Rainbow. Shades Of Orange. Cardboard Watch. Don't Take Me. Loving, Sacred Loving and Introspection (Parts 1&2).
a must have for all collections!

Recording started in the Summer of Love, but this didn't see the light of day until November 1969, way too late - the psychedelic boat had long since gone. More a collection of dreamy music pieces than guitar-driven psych-out anyway, it's still of interest to 60's psych fans. Much (too much!) is made of Bill Wyman's support and production; this album stands on its own merit.

Even so, it's still something of a curate's egg. There are typical pieces of UK psych whimsy like Cardboard watch sitting alongside the two part title track, which hints at a more progressive sound that was to come. Elsewhere, the gorgeous Loving, sacred loving and She said Yeah sound influenced by Pet Sounds. Then there's Shades of Orange, the single that most people who will be interested in the album will know, here in both album and mono single versions.

The snippets of anecdotes by Bill Wyman's gardener are unfortunate, however. Included to give it a taste of English eccentricity, they don't do much for the album at all, and get irritating after a couple of listens. But that's only a couple of minutes on an otherwise very enjoyable CD. The sound and musicianship are excellent too - Decca were really one of the top labels when it came to creating a fine sound. Definitely one for checking out.

This is a late psychedelic group, only discovered recently, through a friend with similar tastes in music of that era.
I missed them, the first time round in the 60s, their singles not making any huge impact on the charts at the time.
BUT..this album is worth purchasing, because has some well crafted listenable songs on it, including the excellent "Cardboard Watch".
And the remastering by Decca is exemplary, like this disc was recorded yesterday.
A CD which will get more than a few spins on my system. Sadly missing from this collection, is their last single, "We've Got It Made".
