Produced by Keith Relf of the Yardbirds, Saturnalia made their 1969 debut with this beautiful picture disc, which has since become a collector's item among fans of the genre. For this release Akarma has attempted to remain as faithful as possible to the

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Obscurity June 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is genuinely progressive music. I can't remember the last time an album impressed me this much. A brilliant disc with an original approach and sound. My amazement only grows deeper with each listen.

Saturnalia was an English band that was probably thought of as psychedelic at the time. I'm not sure if the progressive label was in use yet. Produced by ex-Yardbird Kieth Relf, it certainly bares some resemblance to his incarnation of Renaissance, and perhaps Phallus Dei by Amon Duul II. This disc is aptly titled. There seems to be something magical in the air when you listen. One of those albums with an almost other worldly atmosphere, transporting the listener to some mystical destination.

Female vocalist Alleta is best described as an alto with on off center delivery something in the neighborhood of Renate Knaup (Amon Duul II). Perhaps not easily accessible for some listeners, I find her to be a treasure. Male vocals are handled by future Horse vocalist Adrian Hawkins who has a rather unique style himself. Certainly these two contribute in no small way to the originality of this music. Bassist Richard Roughton and drummer Tom Compton are both excellent musicians and should hold the attention even of well seasoned listeners. The one who perhaps shines brightest, though, is guitarist Rod Roach, also a future member of hard rock outfit Horse. The music here sounds like Horse in places, and two songs from this disc would reappear on Horse's self titled debut of 1971 with slightly different arrangements.

The songs on this album are quite brilliant in my opinion. A heady mixture of hard rock, medieval, renaissance, folk, etc. often in a single number. Honestly, the three bands already mentioned in this review are the closest reference points I can give.

2.0 out of 5 stars Someone, find the master tapes! April 13, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The songs and delivery are great, but the .mp3s are yet another rip from the noisy picture disc. I bought this album way back when it was first released, and returned several copies until I finally got one which would actually track and play. It is unfortunate that this album had not also been pressed on a black vinyl disc. Then--when no one bothered to track down the master tapes for yet another shoddy re-release--the rip could actually be improved, so the softer passages wouldn't be obscured by noise.
