Well, this is a marmite album – you love it or hate it, as it is a bit weird, even by 1968 standards. Ironically, the band have their roots in American acoustic folk, but then they found electricity and it all went a bit strange. The closest track on this album to a hit single was ‘Bird song’, which gained prominence as one of the tracks on the film ‘Easy Rider’ and its soundtrack. Best played loud with the lights down low and a glass of something strong. Brilliant example of a great collectible mono album.
