Good album with excellent booklet inside. my personal favorites are "hold on", relections of charles brown (good original version on the album also) some tracks also appear on the fleur de lys album.
one track (previously unreleased) is from an original acetate and is of good quality. Disappointed with the live versions from a 1999 reunion that are covers of small faces. rolling stones and the beatles.
Worth a listen

This songs by Rupert's People on this CD have a very significant place in the history of modern music. The CD contains two of the most important and influential songs of the 1960's. "Reflections of Charles Brown" and "A Prologue to a Magic World" were very different from the pop songs coming out of Britain and America at the time. "Reflections" tells the story of a man wearily arriving home after another souls destroying day at work, Sunday, his one day off, is spent at the park with his children and then on Monday the dread of heading off for another week of "graft and grind" begins again. "Prologue", inspired by Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland". Here we meet Alice who is about to dive headlong into the Wonderland of her childhood imagination. It is a delight and a song years ahead of its time.
