additional information by Mr. Michael Gillespie
This is a good album with some typically melodic Thijs van Leer tunes backed by the excellent vocals of Michael Gillespie and the guitar playing of Eef Albers and Jan Peter Eerenberg. There are no instrumentals on the album but the track 'shock treatment' sounds like a Focus track and is complemented by Thijs van Leer's yodelling and screaming.
