Performer Notes
  • A minor classic of progressive rock, this album ranks with Gracious' second album and King Crimson's debut as an exemplar of the use of the Mellotron. Although Mellotrons and the organ (along with some charmingly plonkety piano)provide the foundation of the band's sound, the drums and guitar lay down rocky grooves that keep the washes of keyboards from swamping the whole affair. The lyrics are contemplative, a quality emphasized by Pat Moran's smoky and often wistful vocal style, particularly on the mournful piano piece "Song to Absent Friends." "Shipwrecked Soldier" has wonderfully martial rhythms applied to the Mellotron and drums, and the soaring "Golden Fleece" really lets the multiple keyboards shine. The production is airy and live sounding, with the result that this album has aged surprisingly well. ~ Paul Collins
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] long-lost early prog classic....There are certainly some lovely melodies here, and top-drawer musicianship too."
