Godhead alert! This masterpiece landed in my lap a few days back, crawled up my spine like a kundalini snake and proceeded to take the top of my head off. Despite the rather late date for this sort of sound, Probe 10 are unquestionably linked to a very specifically American form of proto-prog-into-jazz-rock synthesis of the precise sort Elektra Records (under Jac Holzamn) used to specialize in, from Tim Buckley's Starsailor to David Stoughton's Transformer. Toss in trumpet fanfare laden acid psych straight out of the C.A. Quintet songbook, the riotously melodic and dense brassy arrangements of McLuhan and the ecstatic trilling songbird-isms of Sonja Kristina's work in Curved Air (specifically Phantasmagoria) and...well...hold on to your hookahs!
