PH's debut album was supposedly rather hastily cut, but you would never know it by listening (mono recording notwithstanding); aside from the Title track (which wasn't even actually on the original Deram label PH debut LP), there are moments on this album that hold up so well today that they really make you wonder why this group never achieved the kind of stature their talent obviously merited...
Give a listen to (Outside the Gates of) Cerdes (arguably the finest cut on the disc) and you'll hear it all: top-of-the-line vocals and piano work by Brooker; the haunting Hammond organ of Matthew Fisher; the emerging brilliance of Robin Tower on guitar; the trademark mythological-lyrical poetry of wordsmith Keith Reid. This cut alone is worth the price of the disc and tells much of the PH story in a remarkably succinct manner. Then there is "A Christmas Camel"; the original (and much more interesting) version of "Conquistador" and, among others, the wonderful! concluding instrumental, "Repent Walpurgis" (I heard PH perform this live in Columbus, Ohio back in '70; the episode still lingers as one of the strangest and most chilling musical moments I have ever known). If you are at all interested in PH's music, this disc is the place to start and one should plan to tarry here for quite a while...
