"First reissue (from the mastertape) of this lost West coast monster rarity with the blend of those early S.F. bands like Tripsicord Music Box, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Kak, etc. There is a fantastic songwriting with a cosmic timeless feeling. Garrett's falsetto voice and singing is beyond words and the guitar leaves you crying on the right or wrong day.Garrath Lund was part of the Caretakers, a band which opened before the great psychrock bands of that time. He recorded this album but no label was interested. Releasing it privately it sold with the help of radio promotion 2000 copies in less than two weeks, but still there was no label to release it officially. So after 26 years this finally is the first release.
The album can be compared to the kind of albums of singer-songwriters with a deeper concentration to the music with electric arrangements, far away from other influences and with a time taken to develop, like what John Saint-Field or so did, but here with a west coast direction, and with some attention to some sweet acidic development of the electric guitar, backed by a rock band. The voice goes from normal to higher notes, with emotional calm perspectives with closed eyes. "Serene" has a fine production of keyboards (mellotron and electric piano by Angie Gudino).
