Originally released in 1969, this was the band's first record. I've seen this title in those privately-owned ma and pa independent music stores before. Wow! Such beautifully penned out progressive folk raga-rock. Almost heavenly. Couldn't help but to notice that Quintessence's music is heavily influenced by the sounds and style of Middle Eastern culture. Tracks that nearly had me gasping for air (guess I didn't know what hit me,at first) were "Gange Mai", "Pearl And Bird", the Raga-rocking "Notting Hill Gate" and the droning "Midnight Mode". Line-up: Sambhu Babaji-bass,acoustic guitar and harp, Mike '?'- sitar , Shiva Jones-lead vocals, keyboards & hand drum, Alan Mostert-guitar & bass, Dave Codling-rhythm guitar, Raja Ram-flute,bells&chimes and Jake Milton-drums. Should most appeal to fans of Bobby Callender, Sativa, Third Ear Band and Don Robertson. A must-have.

I have had this album for quite some time but never really got round to reviewing it, along with all of the other albums I have been buying but I am sure many readers will understand where I am coming from there. I have been prompted to revisit the album as it is almost a year since the third Quintessence album was reissued in England, 'Dive Deep' and there is some expectation that the remaining albums will appear shortly.

In the ferment of social change and exploration which went on in the Western industrialised countries during the 1961 to say 1977, period - an arbitrary date which includes the revival of so called punk rock, the bands reflected the changes which were taking place rather than drove those changes. While many conservative people were concerned and opposed those changes, young people in particular embraced them wholeheartedly and while many did not fully particpate in the music or drugs arena they fled with sometimes wild abandon into the more hedonistic aspects of change particularly sexuality and lifestyle choices.

Much of the music of the period was fundamentally blues based and at it's heart was concerns with feelings and relationships in a basic sortof way but in any event it encouraged people to dance and interact often in a merely phyical way. Crucially the booming music scene brought many bands into being playing this music, often denigrated by social conservatives and providing fuel for the counter-social revolution which is continuing to gather pace today.

Quintessence in a way epitomises the conflict which many people felt through experiencing these changes.

Live they were a force. For the reviewer who thought they were boring. Being at three of their live gigs, the sheer goodness of them lifted the spirits even of a 14 year old who thought he was a cynic in training. The music had enough rock and interesting mixes of instruments Raja Ram's flute, the vocals and the guitarist-to make for absorbing listening. Unlike other bands of that era who were good live, this first album did not disappoint. OK fading out on a vacuum cleaner was a bit naff. But Giants and the haunting Pearl and bird stand out. The bonus tracks don't add but it is a damn good and stands on its own feet. They were a genuinely living the life collective that spilled into the music. still like some on the mantras and chants. Buy it and enjoy that soaring feel good spirit.

I remembered this cover from when I bought the record when it originally was released...hummmm, must be the air or the head trip then because it was nothing as I remembered it to be. At best it is fair and that is being very very kind...skip this one for real Blissful life....

Quintessance as a live force were i'm told interminably boring. Like the German band Sweet Smoke they were deeply into religous chants, mantra's and spacy improvisations. Whereas Sweet Smoke made a half decent live album( now issued with extra tracks) and the excellant 'just a poke' Quintessance just couldn't get it right in the studio. There is always something worthwhile on the three albums but God, you have to plunder through some drivel. This is probably the best album, but it's faults far out weigh the plus's. On the good side there is some nice spacy early Hawkwind like excursions and the flute gives it an edge, on the minus side there is a lengthy sitar excursion that goes on forever and the singer is a bit overbearing and lyrically well..cringe worthy os maybe a bit to polite. Now i'm not against praising your God in music and i'm not an athiest but sometimes its just a bit to over the top and preachy. The cover though is excellant and the extra's show that when they could three minutes can do more than eleven. I believe after they split the flautist Raja Ram (bet that's not his real moniker) got heavily into dance music. Monotony in the 200's same as monotony in 69!
