"It's truly great news that BATTERSEA POWER STATION has been reissued on CD. This is actually the second CD version of this 1969 classic, issued as JUNIOR'S EYES (A&M SP 4189) on vinyl in the U.S. back in 1969. The album, without bonus tracks, came out on World Wide Records (a division of SPM of Germany) in 1991. The original album included Wayne, Graham Kelly (Grom) on vocals, Steve Chapman (drums) and John (Honk) Lodge on bass. Personnel changes added Tim Renwick (guitar), Rick Wakeman (keyboards) and John Cambridge (drums). A second album was recorded, but the master tapes were reportedly stolen. That's a shame, because this group showed lots of promise. The title track, "Battersea Power Station," actually contains several songs within, all with varying musical styles and sound effects. Some similarity to Procol Harum's sound during that era. The original vinyl is quite rare, so we're fortunate to see this gem in print again. Fans of vintage Brittish rock shouldn't miss out on this, and it's also worthwhile to those discovering this sound for the first time. Grab it while it's still available. If we're lucky, whoever's got the master tapes of that missing second album will come clean and return it unharmed. It's probably worth the wait."
