CD-Reissue of German/English/Dutch outfit ODIN. Their one and only album on famous German label Vertigo, originally released in 1972, is a truly gem of the golden age of Progressive Rock. Four excellent musicians show their great talent, especially organ player Jeff Beer and guitarist Rob Terstall, driven by great rhythm section Ray Brown on bass and drummer Stuart Fordham. The album's highlight is opening track "Life is only". This is an absolutely great 12-minutes number with raging, dissonant Hammond B-3 work, refined song constructions and very good guitar and vocal work. Another highlight is a 8-minutes version of Quartermass classic "Gemini" with features also a long and impressive B-3 organ solo. "Clown" closes the original album out with some heavy instrumental firepower from Jeff Beer keyboards and strong vocals. Bonustrack is a 14-minutes live version of Frank Zappa's "Oh No" with an impressive drum-solo by Stuart Fordham. CD comes with a comprehensive booklet including personal liner notes by Ray Brown, press reviews and lot of rare photos. Hot stuff and highly recommended.
