This is a terrific period piece for progressive rock fans. One can also see this record as a model for the jazz-rock fusion popular in the late 70's.

Keyboard whiz Patrick Moraz shines, and swirls through seven songs, while Peter Lockett displays some really hot guitar. Bryson Grahm and Jean Pastori form a cooking rhythm section, and the vocals [Lockett and Pastori] are a perfect fit. This is one of those album's that gets better with every listen.
If you like Emerson Lake and Palmer, Return To Forever, Stanley Clarke, or Brian Auger's Oblivion Express you're going to love this record.

It is in print on CD.

Note: Note: Unfortunately most of the good records that come back into print are on CD, but at least our fellow collectors have a chance to hear them.
We also review some albums that are deleted but may be interesting to fans of a certain style or period.
We add some records that are so bad it is just amazing. [there are collectors who are really interested in acquiring them].
