"Although billed as the third Trace album, this is really the first Ekseption reunion album. Jaap van Eik, Ian Mosely and Pierre van der Linden (of Trace) do not appear, while Cor Dekker, Peter de Leewe and Dick Remelinck (of Ekseption) do appear. The sound is unsurprisingly closer to 'Ekseption 3' and 'Beggar Julia's Timetrip' than the ELP-influenced Trace.
Shortly after this release (1976) the ersatz Ekseption, which had been continuing with Hans Jensen in place of Rick van der Linden, would change their name to Spin, and Rick would reunite with his former bandmates, reclaim the name and release 'Ekseption '78.' Got that???
Ekseption was always Rien van den Broek's band more than Rick's, although Rick became such a major element of their sound that they weren't really Ekseption without him. Of course Trace wasn't Ekseption either without the horn section of Rein and Dick."
