The four pieces that make up the first side of this LP and the last of the second refer to the fabulous atmospheres of the free-festivals immortalized on the magnificent images of the inner sleeve; ex-Ozrics Gavin’s guitars wed to hyperactive Joie’s keys, setting free listener’s imagination, who is caressed by the seductive litanies of the charming vocalist Jane: she who sings barefoot and on tiptoe, as if she wanted to raise her voice to heaven…

Alas, nevertheless the male vocalisms are annoying. On the contrary, the remaining three tracks disconcert: on “Sunrise” all the seven members of the band play only the percussions with the accompaniment of birds’ chirping and of the usual tedious male voices, whereas “S.M.I.2L.E.” and “Feel it” are reggae songs (!!) refined by the gorgeous female vocals.

After all, this is an album that always fascinated me mostly for the evocative moment that documents, rather than for its real intrinsic value.
