Sorry, out for dinner at my sons tonight, with he and his fiancé. Have a NICE time, though.

I’ll spin it tomorrow and add some comments.

This is a corker of an album!

A toast to absent friends

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love Lee Jackson's vocals

RIP Keith and Blinky

What a great player Emerson was

Such a talent

Nice thundering bass from Lee and steady tubs from Blinky

They worked and gelled really well

Not familiar with this album - last heard it around 40 years ago.

Enjoying Azreal - some percussive colours being added most attractively. To Kath!

A stunningly well recorded album considering it was 1969

Some bowed bass from Mr Jackson
