    The groove is strong with this album. Every song pulsates with a hypnotic beat, arrangements are dense but not slick, and Earland uses all manner of synths and keyboards with force. "Intergalactic Love Song", "From My Heart To Yours" and "Journey Of The Soul" are highlights. Interesting fusion of funk/soul/rock/jazz delivered with a spaced out vibe. No issues with this pressing, good range from top to bottom and nice spatial separation in the soundstage. My copy is very clean and quiet, with no surface noise noted.

        Flylo and Thundercat definitely have this in their record collection.

          After only one listen the album is an instant 70 s gem.

            Terrific album, some real sleeper cuts on there. As others have commented, one can wonder why this was never re-issued digitally.

              Worth owning just for that Santana-esque latin mellow funk opener Intergalactic Love Song with its delicious Moogy solo and cosmic guitar leads! Why isnt this on cd?????

                It's a jazz rock fusion album with soul and a touch of disco. Spacey and religious themes. Great fender rhodes keyboards and electric guitar. One of my favourite albums ever. Not available on CD or Spotify!

                  One of the best openings around in Intergalactic Love Song. The album is a bit eclectic, but it has some essential jazz-funk tunes.
