Originally released 1971
CD reissue 2013 Flawed Gems
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.
