"This is the only official vinyl reissue of this album since its first release in 1969. High quality 180 gram vinyl pressing with a real laminated sleeve that exactly reproduces the original front and rear artwork. Accepted by many reviewers as one of the best British psychedelic albums of the 1960s, Love and Poetry captures the cusp of the moment just before the abstract abandon of psychedelia mutated into the leaden predictability of progressive rock. Composed entirely of Dave Lewis songs, the album evokes the heady atmosphere of the late '60s with druggy, utopian themes and innocent musical experimentation. Hard psychedelic rock with blistering guitar work is mixed with contemporary pop themes given a liberal dose of backwards effects, exotic percussion, orchestration, keyboards, flute and acoustic guitar. The blend of styles works to perfection and with the addition of perhaps one of the best psychedelic sleeve designs of the era, the whole package oozes class." Last copies, now deleted.
