Surging, affirming 1978 debut album

Prime early Here & Now. Steffe, Keith, Gavin, Kif Kif, Annie and Suze trip the light fantastic - they trip it still.

At a great price...limited number available.

Suze and Gavin may be gone but the music they lived and helped create lives on. More than 40 years have passed since this album was released, but the uniquely aware, youthful optimism still shines on. Never give up on the magic, it never gives up on you - it just waits until you choose to rediscover it once more.

I don't know what the equivalent of £2.25 is today, the "lowest price we could make it!" as it said on the original 1978 sleeve notes, but I'm sure the price of this CD is equivalently even lower. Seize the moment - seize the CD - for soon they will be gone...

Jewelcase with the most simple 4 page booklets.
