John Cratchley There is so much essential jazz from this, it seems to me, almost forgotten period of wonderful and exhilarating British music...Mike Gibbs work was/is exceptional and, I remember, very influential...this album is treasure to me (as is so much on the whole Jazz In Britain initiative)...it needs support from anyone who considers themselves a serious listener, I think...keep this music alive!

gooner4270 Mike's debut LP was my introduction to jazz. Bought it due to the presence of Jack Bruce. Then discovered others on his album (Skidmore) had recorded with John Mayall. My next jazz purchase was John Coltrane. So appropriate to come back to this, which I never got round to buying at the time. Excellent reissue, thanks.
