Customer Review

on 20 December 2011
This is by far their best album, apart from a fantastic Elektra compliation (a US import) of the early 70s, and comes like an alien transmission beamed directly from a time before the public began to tire of them, and the boys tired of each other. Never huge sellers, but I certainly remember staring in early-teenaged awe at the fantastic and slightly scary album covers they had for their first albums.

With the benefit of hindsight, we've come to hear plenty of other folky, psych-folk oddball acts from the era. But other wanna-bes never quite got the right mix of whimsy, humour, innocence and wisdom.

And this is a great album that shows off their strengths (the beautiful Koeeaddi There and Witches Hat), and their weaknesses (Bits of Cellular song are unfortunately embedded in this old hippy's long-term memory; I wish it wasn't!). Rambling, whimsical,maybe. But I'd take them any day over any of the confessional singer songwriters that infest the charts at present. Perhaps the only band to which I'd wish the famous words of Bob Dylan: May you stay forever young. They should have been maintained at government expense in a little wooded cottage in a fairy glen... and forbidden to renter the world! But, alas...
