According to All Music...
"This little-known band made a brief impression in 1969 with an outstanding instrumental version of ‘Amazing Grace’, long before Judy Collins popularized the song. The mantra-like fuzz guitar added a spiritual quality that... See full review

I don't usually take any notice of ratings but 2.88/5 is unexpectedly low for this, some good songs, nice arrangements and Styvers' lovely voice, what more do you need?

Dangling Conversation is easily the best thing on this one, the Spinning song is entertaining too. Not a brilliant lp but the harmonies arranged by Ann Phillips (of Born To Be Blue fame) are interesting and make up in part for the fluffy material.

The version of Viva Tirado on this is absolutely stunning.

I agree, it's a cool album and the drumming is great. The lp reminded me a bit of Mother Earth - Living with The Animals, which is worth a listen if you've not heard.

Side By Side is a lovely tune, when she starts multi-track singing with herself on the last third of the song it's simply wonderful.

Hey, didn't know this one was cook, he's done some great stuff hasn't he, think the Jackson Sisters remix thing he did as Urban Allstars is my favorite and that Cheeky Boy 12.

It's all about the 12" extended version of Wonderland. The remixer Steve Lilywhite really went to town on it. 10/10

Joyous is one helluva track, you know they threw the kitchen sink at it, put in absolutely everything they could to blow your mind to the fullest extent possible, and it does, in spades.

The version of Hey Jude on this is an 8 minute organ led monster, with some very cool psychedelic brass. 10/10 just for that tune.

Slightly surprised there's no reviews for this, I was expecting to find lots of comments. This is a wonderful album from Dion, he's definitely on a downer here but it's a beautiful downer, my favorite track is the wonderful cover of Hendrix's Purple... See full review
posted a comment on Dion (3) - Abraham, Martin And John / Daddy Rollin'. 8 months ago
Here we have one of the best tracks of the era and a good candidate for best B side of all time. Daddy Rollin' is a serious tune. I read he was coming off heroin when he recorded this.

Another great album from Dion, favorites for me are the opener Close To It All, the wonderful covers of Let It Be and Blackbird and the slightly countrified Josie. When I listen to this guy I can't help but think he might have had the best voice of... See full review

Pooka were a really creative pair who had lovely and quite unique harmony vocals, someone should do a box set and collect everything together along with their collabs with Ultamarine and Orbital. The solo stuff they both went on to do after Pooka... See full review

Nifty little record this, you get one of the most lovely jangly indie pop tunes of the era plus a remix by Martin Hannet that is psychedelic to say the least and it's on a 10" How cool is that?
