  1. Echo all the above, well picked through, I was there last year, got a few small bits but nothing to shout about ! Not like the 80s eh ! Rob
  2. Memories from the time, 1975/76 I was working in Mansfield, It was a Wednesday and "Half day closing" for shops (Remember that ?), Phil Kingswood worked in Syd Booths Soul Centre in Mansfield at the time. I used to go there and look through the cheap section whilst it was quiet. He had access to all sorts of release sheets and distributors who stocked import LPs. He had found the Mystic Moods Album with Astral Trip on and ordered a couple of copies for the shop. When they arrived it had been recorded in "Quadrophonic Sound" ! Syd Booths also had an associated Hi-Fi Shop on Queens Street in Mansfield, we were heading for a drink at The Swan so called in at the shop, which was pushing the Quadrophonic Systems, put Astral Trip on, stood in the centre of 4 speakers and listened ! I remember the sound "Rushing " around the room sounding absolutely brilliant, I can certainly imagine it "Blowing the mind" of anyone on Acid at the time ! I still like the record, but as Barry says maybe it was because I was there at the time ? Rob PS a little later he also found Sammy Davis Jnrs Vocal to Hawaii 5 0 on an Album and ordered that in !
