Absolutely incredible! One of the best Moog-ambient albums ever created! 10/5!

I was under the impression that all the negativity was just some perfectionist audiophiles complaining about things inaudible to the average listener, but this really is a horrible mix. Not only is the missing channel audible, it's painful. If you fell in love with this record through listening to the original pressing (or it's really popular rip on YouTube), don't waste your money on this or the ones by Fifth Dimension. Just wait for an official reissue or (more realistically) save up for the original.

Perhaps i'm missing something and my ears have packed in due to old age, but personally this repress on The Great Thunder sounds perfectly fine to me - wonderfully warm and lovely synths, seems to have been done really well. No inserts or fancy stuff, not even an address for The Great Thunder on there but considering how much OG copies go for, i'm more than happy with this. A welcome addition to the collection after all these years.

Yet another very disappointing reissue. Another entire channel is missing as in the Fifth Dimension release. I feel so conned for buying this as I thought it would be much better than Fifth Dimension. I guess these guys are indeed the SAME guys from Fifth Dimension, just using a different name to con more people. I'm sorry to say but DON'T BUY THIS!

Is this - contrary to the Fifth Dimension ones - a legitimate reissue?
Any comments on the quality of the pressing?

This is getting a vinyl re-release on The Great Thunder label, due to be available on 24th April 2017.
Very little info at present - they don't seem to have a website or any online presence but i'm hoping they'll do it justice.

One of my all time favorite music. Very playful atmosphere with quirky moog melodic arrangements.

I think there's a lot more of these around than Discogs would have you believe. I remember my parents buying a new mattress at Sleepers in the late 1970s and they got this album and a plant for free. I'm sure they weren't the only ones, so there's untold copies out there in old hippies' basements waiting to be rediscovered..

Brilliant release of Moog music. Nicely composed with choice use of sounds and stereo placement. Theres no cheese-ball pop covers and all the tracks are listener friendly esp. for Moog aficionados!
Glad this unknown gem was finally available on cd!
