This LP is André’s first British release on the CBS label..

For moody trippers there’s the solemn death shuffle of The Monkey and Atlantide while Mad Train and Hold-Up uphold the groovy status quo with the latter coming off as almost proto-Popcorn.

Bill starts with a serious church organ sound before the kicks in. The Kid has a beefy guitar on the side with A Taste Of Tobacco reeking of smoky club vibes. The LP concludes with the choppy “uppers choice” swirl of The Invasion.

Tasty is an apt title for this dynamic LP – one which belies its “early” age of 1966.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
