Love this record or CD! Neil passed away 2/23/2004. The record includes the infamous John Martyn play electric guitar on several tracks. Neil Ardley was a legend in Britain. He never really took hold musically in the United States, though his two albums were released here. I found them both in Ann Arbor, MI.
Esoteric Recordings has re-released Harmony of the Spheres in 2009. There was also a Mini LP style CD release from Japan in 2005
