A Blast from the Past

(5 out of 5 stars)
"The cover of the CD is probably the only woefully inadequate part. I had the album when it first came out and THAT cover was awesome.
When the original album first came out, it was the first time sound effects were incorporated with lush orchestration. Rock groups like Deep Purple and Electric Flag had already been experimenting with sounds that came from sources other than their guitars and drums.
There are some tracks here that can only be described as "hauntingly beautiful." NOTHING ON MY MIND/MOMENTS AGO is one of them. It is beautiful enough to make you cry the first time you hear it.
Oh, and the tracks do not match up. Thank CD technology for that one. On the album, very often the tracks would run together because of the sound effects, stuff like a rain storm or a locomotive in the distance. Of course, it would have been awful to split up the obvious medleys created by the sound effects. You've heard what a CD sound like when it goes to another track. So the sound editor here kept "There's A Good Earth Out Tonight" and "Theme from Shoes of a Fisherman" in the same track as "Webb of Jim Collage." Unfortunately, whoever designed the cover obviously hadn't bothered to listen to the actual CD, opting instead to go by the track lineup of the original album.
I mention this so you won't think you were gypped out of those songs. They are there, but the labeling is wrong.
The album was wonderful, and the CD is almost as good. Of course, one can play the CD in one's automobile, which gives it an edge over the album."
