There are no sleeve notes to speak of on this album. The music is hard fusion of a high standard throughout, with exceptional guitar playing throughout courtesy of Eef Albers who is in top form. Darryl Thompson is much more conventional - he may be remembered by some readers as a late 70's Hendrix stylist. Eef Albers playing is very much in the same mould as his contributions to Focus Con Proby - which I believe were the highlights of that album. When I listen to this and FCP I do wonder what might have happened if a partnership with Thijs Van Leer had been allowed to flourish and develop properly sans Proby?
