(5 out of 5 stars)
"British/Lewis Carrol-esque (trippy-fun lyrics) music! Pete Miller has great guitar chops & soundz in addition to a home studio from that era well-stocked with sonic goodies so that the sound is analog-rich & varied. -3 or 4 plays of this disc will have a few of the tunes insinuating their hooks into your consciousness, and 20 plays later, Pete's whimsical imagery and electric guitar mastery will still be impressing you! if you're like me & crave this era, this zeitgeist so special & seemingly inexhaustible!"
Big Boy Pete-'Homage To Catatonia:The Pyschedelic Adventures

"Fourteen previously unreleased tracks,penned between 1966-69.Demos,actually.Sounds darn good for just demos.Some say that Big Boy Pete(aka Pete Miller)sounds a lot like the Trogg's vocalist,Reg Presley.Best described as offbeat psychedelic pop.Prior to this CD,the only tune I've ever heard from Big Boy Pete was the cut he's got on the various artists compilation 'Electric Sugar Cube',"Cold Turkey".Obviously,I must've been really impressed in order to seek out more of the man's repertoire.Most impressive tracks here are "Sheer Lunacy","1,500,000 Volts",the semi-trippy "Captain Of My Toy Balloon","The Procession" and the well written "The Candleman".Might appeal to some fans of The Turtles,The Herd, John's Children,The Creation and Michael Yonkers."

"This album has dated well. It has none of the silly hippy dippy lyrics or overproduction that have made many '60's psychedelia not hold up today. The lyrics are trippy and whimsical and sort of remind me of 80's bands like "They Might Be Giants". "The Damned" apparently covered Big Boy Pete's "Cold Turkey". I am interested in hearing both the original and cover versions."
