This is by far his best work, and I include the material from his earlier band "Whipping Post" which anyways is not progressive, merely blues-rock garbage. The mellotron is what makes this for me just succulently, nostalgically heavenly.
What about the cover drawing-- is it a flock of sheep behind the oddly coated man in the hat? When I look closely, I fail to see any heads or faces to provide some reference. The other side of the gatefold doesn't provide any clues. Very mysterious and evocative, as is the light emanating from him. I really love the transmission lines, which make for such an odd image. Unfortunately, my friend who did this rip did not scan the inside so credits for this are absent. Anyone with more information please help.
As with the other great album he did, "Warship Suite", C. B. plays all the instruments here. Please note that the remainder in his discography, all of which I've heard, is utter crap!
Now here's the first track, notice straightaway that mellotronly heaven:
