The long out-of-print CD by the SRC. One of Michigans psychedelic gems, the band remains a favorite along side MC5, The Amboy Dukes, and the Stooges. Lots of sustain laden guitar and spacey lyrics to keep you awake. Tracks: Black Sheep / Daystar / Exile / Marionette / Onesimpletask / Paragon Council / Refugeve / Interval / Black Sheep (Live)

This is something of an SF concept album, whose storyline is a bit vague to the first time listener, but rich in space opera references. You've just got to love lines like "stripped of his power by nuclear wizards" (Exile) "Rainbow fire scorched the land / Warwheels filled the sky (Paragon Council) and the very spooky images of "Marionette". Basically someone is on the run across the galaxy and there's a link to our very deep past. I think that's all we need to know, because each track is a tuneful and singable example of late 1960s pop and rock. Actually "Refugeve" does some serious Rock! (Yes, some might say the album's concept jarring and juvenile in its delvery then go on to cite the ponderous and morbid efforts of the of some of the british prog' rock outfits). Well folks this is light, easy to listen and enjoyable music and that is fine by me (very fine infact) and I know which I would choose to unwind to of an evening.
Sadly SRC never did manage to consolidate their potential and so convey their uniqueness to a wider audience which is why an overview of all their work is difficult to categorise, but this first album promised so much and I cheerfully bought the first three albums.
Glad to see this one back on sale.

I'm glad I bought it. I think it is reminiscent of "Yes" in some ways.
