I picked up a cheap used vinyl copy of this the other day - when I was younger, I steered clear of this era of Beck's output because it was supposed to be the dreaded "fusion." I'm older and wiser now, and not scared of jazz or of (all) fusion, and, you know what? This is a really intriguing album. I think it's cool that Beck moved away from the hammer-you-into-submission power trio format of the Jeff Beck Group and Led Zeppelin and made this quirky little album. And it's good to see that Sir George Martin found a project worthy of his talents after the demise of the Beatles.
