5 stars One of my alltime favourite albums! And its funny how I came across it. Back in '88 I bought a box of albums off an art teacher of mine.Beggars opera was in the batch so I threw it on the turntable and gave it a listen.The first track floored me! Its exactlly what I was looking for..psychedelia on full speed and tight.No sloppy filler muzak here.Every track after that had me grinning from ear to ear! And heres the crazy thing.I was in England for my uncles funeral and was talking with his wife's brother.We talked about music and I told him my favourite album is Act one by Beggars opera but before I could go on he stopped me and said 'I was the lead singer'. I could'nt believe my luck! He gave me a signed album of Waters of change and told me some hilarious stories from the days on the road. Anyhoo give it a listen its a good sampling of early seventies psychedelia.
