This is a glorious album from the days when Bands could be run by crazy people, and yet still attract brilliant musicians. In this case the members of Cream and Jon Hiseman's superb Colosseum, before they left Bond to launch their own bands. Graham Bond (like John Mayall) managed to fill his bands with all manner of future super stars, and this version of his band is a prime example. And the music is brilliant - and shows where Cream and Colosseum learnt their trade. Twin saxes from Bond and the amazing Heckstall-Smith, wonderful jazzy drumming from Hiseman and Baker, Jack Bruce's trademark bass sound - and John McLaughlin on guitar! What more could you want? Tracks such as "Walkin' in the Park" and "The Grass is Greener" are the roots of much of the later 60's and early 70's blues-jazz-rock bands. Listen and Smile!
