I'd forgotten how good and progressive this album was - a friend proudly played the vinyl album to a few of his spotty faced mates back in the day and I for one didn't get it at the time - now I'm at an age when classical music is actually relevant to a decent balanced record collection, this album slots right in there!
This is the best album involving a rock band and an orchestra that I've ever owned. First heard this when stationed in Berlin around 1970, and loved it. Bought the vinyl album later, but it disappeared somewhere along the path of life. Now found via Amazon on cd, and it's helped me to rediscover a GREAT piece of work that every rock and/or orchestral lover should own. What would I do without Amazon? No idea.
