"Quintessence was one of the most adventurous and exciting bands of the hippie era. As contemporaries of The Doors and Pink Floyd, they gained a fanatical following for their blend of rock, jazz and Eastern spiritual music. Hailed by critics as forerunners of such bands as Ozric Tenacles, Quintessence was the ultimate New Age experience. They were fronted by charismatic singer Shiva Shakti (now known by his real name Phil Jones). Dive Deep (1971) was their third album and is full of ecstatic performances, whose hypnotic sounds entranced a generation. In the informative CD liner notes, Phil explains how the group was formed in London in 1969 by flute player Raja Ram and tells the full story of their musical adventures and ultimate demise."
