Audiophile reissue on 180 gram vinyl of the rare 1969 6-track LP featuring Steve Hillage's first released recordings.

Wonderfully over the top classic psychedelic album reissued in it's original cover.

Full of fine psychedelic guitar work, some major organ work from Dave Stewart (later of Hatfield And The North) and backed by the rest of the band Egg. The picture sleeve reproduces the original album artwork in full. Echoes of Steve's later work in Khan and even a hint of his first solo album Fish Rising are discernible in this feast of late '60's rock. Here is another fleeting chance to buy a vital piece of Steve's musical development on relatively reasonably priced vinyl - the original pressings sell for £100's.
