3 stars 3.5 stars really!!

One of those much acclaimed and unfortunately over-rated lost 70's gem. Original vinyl (very original actually) with the cut-out and fold-out cover go for major amounts of money! A very beautyful artwork sleeve involving a full blown concept of Tibetan nature (if I remember this well , for I have not heard this in over 15 years) about the different states of consciousness/soul .

Fellow reviewer above mentions Black Widow and Campbell-Lyonns"s Nirvana as a comparison and it is very judicious but I would add also a bit of Gravy Train and a touch of Gracious! So we are definitely in proto-prog territory and this is not that polished a work either. Rather uneven songwriting and limited instruments make this album sometimes a bit patchy but overall this album is a minor gem because most of us progheads are bound to like these long and rather psychey KB solos.

Most coolectioners would kill and sell mother and father to own a mint copy of this album, but I would strongly suggest prospective progheads to get a listen to the CD release (before buying it) and forget the vinyl. Good but not essential!
