One of my favourite bands of all time -the mighty SPIRIT ! Well worth checking out -Psychedelic meets Progressive -good harmonies and jazzy playing...Fresh Garbage -Mr. Skin -Street Worm...great songs -still fresh..! Also remembering on German Rockpalst in the mid 70's -the Jamsession of Randy California with Dickey Betts..always in my Hall of Fame.

I love the concept album: The Adventures of Kaptain Kopter & Commander Cassidy in Potato Land. It's a light, funny, warm-hearted journey to Potato Land and includes the Nature's Way anthem. Be sure to get the vinyl with the comic if you can.

Nobody got anything to say about Spirit? Ok, I'll start.

The first Spirit album I ever bought was Farther Along which was a massive mistake as it's one of their worst releases. It's really incredibly bland and, in the middle of punk when I bought it, of no use to me at all. I listened to it a few times as money was tight and it was unfortunate to waste money on bad records. I sold it on pretty quickly.

Anyway - that's the bad news .... the good news is that Spirit made a run of great albums from 1968 to 1975, and I'm sure there's some pleasure to be found in later releases but I only go as far as Future Games (A Magical-Kahauna Dream) and that's it.

They were ahead of their times with the eco-awareness of Fresh Garbage:
'Look beneath your lid some morning
See those things you didn't quite consume
The world's a can for your fresh garbage".

Brilliant lyrics. All those early albums have great songs but my all-time favourite is probably Victim Of Society off Spirit of 76.
Some people don't like that era of Spirit, preferring the 68 - 70 period. Fair enough - when all's said and done The Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus is their most consistent but Spirit of 76 has a ton of imaginative cover versions, great originals and some sublime playing.

I saw Spirit in 1978 at the Reading Festival. I wish I could remember more about it, alas time has erased the memory.
