A truly stunning peice of prog rock.

Great songs, lovely keyboards, good harmonies

kind of cross between the Zombies and Caravan

I cant praise them higher

This album was made at the time when organs, melotrons, and musical exploration was at an exciting stage. Cressida were a band that were part of that era. This album is similar to bands such as Caravan, Beggars Opera and Pink Floyd. The organ is more jazzy than other prog bands. The songs are shorter with a hint of pop but overall the music has a original non-commercial appeal.
Its a pleasant album to listen to with some nice vocals and good songs.
Overall this is an album I would play on a Sunday afternoon with a wine or two. Well worth checking out.

There were so many prog-rock bands back in the late 60s/early 70s that's it not surprising a lot of them passed by unnoticed by potential fans.
I vaguely remember hearing the name/reading about the band but was more interested in the premier players such as Yes, ELP & Genesis!.
I've been trying to re-investigate the lesser heralded bands recently and this one has turned out to be a very pleasant surprise.
Less flamboyant than the above bands and more in the musical arena inhabited by bands such as Caravan.
Heavy on the keyboard front but with some occasional impressive guitar solos and a singer with a very amiable voice and catchy songs all make for an enjoyable album.
Comes with a nice booklet too.

This is a really excellent progressive rock album. Some really tastefull guitar playing and very jazzy organ playing. The vocals are quite strong as well.Well worth a listen if you are into early 70's progressive rock.
