SKU 28-ALCD61.1
“High end 180g black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with the original European artwork including all lyrics! To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of their debut album, the prog rock icons are releasing their first four albums as special vinyl editions. Their fourth album was originally released in December 1972, and - like the predecessor - was produced by the band itself. This was the last album on which founding member Phil Shulman played, and for many fans it is one of their best works.”

The band's fourth album, and a really incredible work. This was the last by the six piece band and their first with drummer John Weathers, who became a very important part of their sound.
It also seems to me that this was the album where they took their 'rock' background, their mastery of the studio and their mastery of their instruments and voices and mixed them together in a very natural way (Acquiring The Taste trod similar ground in a lot of ways, but it didn't seem like it was able to roll off their backs in such a natural way as it did here).
Eight tracks, and every one of them pretty much perfect. This was the first album I heard by them and it pretty much knocked my lights out then and still does, actually. Highly recommended.
