The group's first album, recorded as a duo backed by top British session men Big Jim Sullivan and Clem Cattini. The sound here is generally more mainstream rock (there's even a sitar and tabla noodling around on one track), a lot less elegant and a lot bluesier (especially "You Don't Want My Love") than anything they were later known for, and with horns (of the local marching band variety) around as well. The antique-style tracks ("Saxon Lady," "Season of the Year," "Shepherd's Song") worked best, and became the basis for what followed. This is the only Edsel reissue of the group's albums that has any sonic deficiencies -- there's a little noise, owing to the fact that the master tapes are lost. Terry Wincott's notes are a welcome addition. ~ Bruce Eder
