"Quintessence came from the Ladbroke Grove scene of the late 1960s. A group of musicians who became darlings of the hippy scene and the underground press along with contemporaries Hawkwind. Quintessence played a freaky form of rock music that embraced Indian music, psychedelia and jazz. They came to public attention in 1969 when they signed to Island Records, for whom they recorded three classic albums. In 1971 they signed to RCA records, recording this classic album as their debut for the label. Comprising studio tracks and a live recording from Exeter University, Self was a classic of the 'underground.' This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes and also adds two bonus tracks drawn from the band's only single for RCA Neon label. The album's debut on CD is sure to attract the attention of the legions of collectors of progressive rock."
