• ultimate spinach Behold and See (CD, £7.75)

    label: big beat

    Ultimate Spinach's follow-up album was in a similar vein to their debut. The lyrics were less impressionable though, and their music had become more mystical, particularly on the excellent 'Genesis Of Beauty Suite' and 'Fragmentary Marches Of The Green'. Other tracks like 'Mind Flowers' may be seen as an extension of themes from their earlier album. Once again, Barbara's vocals glisten with beauty. A classic acid rock period piece, originally recorded in 1968.
