An Uncle Roddus Album review
This release has really caught my attention over the last week. A seven peace, all black, progressive rock band from England, releasing this, their only album in 1970 and this CD reissue also included 3 bonus tracks from a maxi- single they also released, which appears to be their complete recorded output. Although I have read about the supposed Latin and African influences on this album, this, to my ears sounds pretty much like Prog, and very good prog it is too. Long, extended, mostly instrumental numbers with plenty going on, like tempo changes and stylistic changes within a track and some nice jazzy breaks as well. An accomplished set with track one, "Past, Present and Future" being the stand out track for me. A highly recommended album and I give it a Roddus rating of 4/5.
