The sole album from this fantastic band is one of the best overlooked folk-progressive rock recordings of the late 6o's. This London-based group had just one actual British member, the rest of the musicians hailing from Norway, Australia, and Canada. This wonderful and truly fascinating album is a combination of strong original material, male-female vocal harmonies, deftly textured mixes of electric and acoustic guitars, tasteful orchestration and soaring bittersweet melodies. Unfortunately, the band broke up in late 1969 and soon after Lucas and Conway formed the rhythm section of Fotheringay. Rosen later played with Mogul Thrash and Hultgreen joined the band Sailor. This definitive edition has been expanded with many rare & unreleased tracks.

Recorded in July 1970, but released in January 1971, this very energetic, inventive but still underrated LP was a brainchild of James Litherland - formerly vocalist & guitarist of Colosseum. Other important musicians in the band were trumpeter Michael Rosen (ex-Eclection) and the young bass player John Wetton. This excellent album is very much in the style of the first two Colosseum records but a bit more faster, intensive, hard-rocking and brassier, but with no keyboards. It contains just six tracks mostly dominated by heavy and sometimes furious guitar solos, groovy & tasteful brass improvisations, truly amazing bass parts and very solid drumming. In the Summer of 1971 John Wetton got an invitation from Family and as a result the band broke up.
