An excellent debut album done by obscure and completely underrated US band from Detroit, produced by infamous Andrew Oldham (an early The Rolling Stones´ manager) and released in 1971 on Motown´s Rare Earth label. With just one exception (the opening soul-rock track), this brilliantly recorded, very melodic, soft-progressive album consisted of very memorable and cleverly-arranged, stylish songs based on rich and strong Hammond organ sounds and attractive vocal parts. Some tracks are just unbelievably beautiful! Stylistically this record is not far away from 1967-68 Procol Harum era (and gems like
 `A Whiter Shade Of Pale` & ` Repent Walpurgis`) with more than a pinch of late 60´s  The Beatles & early Traffic.
