    The Buddha track is quite something - 12/10. After all this time, its still fabadishishly unique & rich.

      Seen them many times in and around London over the years, The Bulls Head Barnes is a stand out, small venue close to the music. Killer latin jazz and fusion which never disappoints. Purchased many records directly from Dick inc multiple copies of this one (all sold now, sorry) 'The Buddha' so good!

        I used to watch this group regularly on Sunday eves at The Kensington pub back in the 70s, and then in various venues after this time. They were led by Dick Crouch, who wrote much of the music and played vibes. The group contained many talented jazz musicians including former Nucleus keyboard player, Geoff Castle, who also wrote a lot of their music. They would regularly be supplemented by well-known local jazz artists. Dick passed on some years back, and sadly, more recently so has Ray Warleigh who was a fantastic sax player/flautist. Original member Geoff Castle now leads the band, and they still play from time to time at the Bull's Head in Barnes, London. This is a great recording, and "Kandleen Love Song" stands out as one of my favourites.

          Classic British Jazz-Fusion with an extremely talented line up. Particularly fond of Phil Lee on guitar and Geoff Castle on Keyboards. I was lucky enough to see them live in 77. Take your choice listen intently to the superb playing or settle back, close your eyes and relax to the intoxicating mix. Well recorded and pressed as well!

            Even if the cover suggests a highly dodgy mixture of Indian and new age ambient sounds, this record is in fact an excellent British jazz-fusion LP and the best work of the group "Paz." The whole thing is top quality, combining flute, congas, bass, jazzy keys and cool little percussion breakdowns. "Yours is the Light" is the classic, and sounds like it would have been (was?) played at famous London jazz dance clubs like Dingwalls. "The Buddha" is in my opinion even better, with a moody break, funky bass and great percussion throughout. "Kandeen Love Song" is more of a cosmic jazz workout that slowly spins off into space. Great record.
