A Little Piece of Heaven
by Michael Broer
I can remember those hot summer afternoons of August '69 when this album was played on our local radio. Because there aren't any breaks in the music each side was played without interruption. What a different world it was when DJs were in charge and on the old AM band! This album is a jazz-rock fusion and is one of the most striking of that great era in music. This still amazes while some of its contemporaries haven't aged that well. I rediscovered this music back in the late '90s on CD out of curiosity. I recognized it immediately. I didn't know what I was getting when I ordered it on vinyl, as some productions can be just minimal improvements over CDs(I can't compare it with an early vinyl pressing). This is definitely not the case as this is a vast improvement in every aspect--more depth, detail and presence over the digitized version. A great example of why the analogue medium is well worth the investment.
