To many, the best King Crimson album from the 1st Crimson era.

“Recorded in 1981, this is a diverse and somewhat obscure John McLaughlin outing recorded in France, mostly with French musicians. Classical pianist Katia Labèque makes appearances on acoustic piano and synthesizer; there is a thoughtful version of "Very Early" recorded in tribute to Bill Evans, and a collaboration with flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía, "Manitas d'Oro." In general, McLaughlin is in fine shape on this worthwhile set, both on acoustic and electric guitars, occasionally showing some fire.” (AllMusic).

A bit of a strange fish. UK hippies trying to be a bit more professional than the first album by sounding like a Cajun folk band at times fronted by a paranoid tripmeister. Tony McPhee on guitar duties though. And a shedload of acid seemingly dropped by all:

Lars Danielsson's Liberetto ensemble, with Arve Henriksen,

played on Micro Seiki BL-91 equipped with Micro Seiki's own elliptical groove plough, MC-4100/e,
preamped by Classe Thirty with built in MC/MM,
poweramped by 100wpc output section of Yamaha AX596,
driving Linn Espek.
Perfection on a budget. All bliss, no fuss.

One of the perhaps less appreciated Coltrane albums, probably influenced by Miles' Sketches of Spain.
Definitely a strong favourite of mine.

Took me ages to find a decent copy of this album. And the best I could do is this one, with two previous poephol owners signed on it ... 🤬 Vinyl is fortunately 100%

A little Scouse indie. Mick Head at his best:

Now the most overlooked Brum indie pop/folk band ever featuring one member of Duran Duran before they recorded anything.
