LOL @ "cult rock band". Kind of a ridiculous epithet for a band that was absolutely most truly "second only to the beatles". Back around 2005 I spent like a year or two listening to this band constantly... so massive! A zillion times better than anything by the quite respectable ELO and a million times better than the mighty awesome Move! And the third album without Lynne isn't as great, but it's still a killer album with a handful of superb songs and only one or two slightly weak cuts. Lynne was mega-brilliant, but Dave Pritchard is totally underrated. A few of the best cuts on the first two albums were actually written by him and his voice was great too!

idle race and the move are both great.

the_flava and tomkash, you're both idiots. This band is one of the great lost psychedelic pop bands of the 60's.

Hard luck if you didn't sell your CD copy of 'Back To The Story' for 250 dollars -- it's back on general release...
