Fruits de Mer Records (Winkle 37)
The 19-minute "Lightstar" starts off with some soulful sax by Lee and slowly builds up into a dreamy, summerly jam. As the promo sheet states, this album has a bit of late 60s/early 70s West Coast vibe to it. This is very mellow, pleasant and sort of spiritual stuff, just close your eyes and enjoy. The 23-minute "Saturnalia" leads us into this ancient pagan celebration in a hypnotic manner. After the little faster beginning it has a similar, peaceful vibe than its predecessor. Very nice! On side three we've got "Nine Miles High - Lightstar Reprise" and finally the heavier space rocking starts. At the start they of course loan a bit from The Byrds classic "Eight Miles High" but then just take it one mile higher! Later on they go back to the original theme and after some guitar feedback the track turns into "Lightstar (Reprise)" with some more cool mid-tempo jam rock. Another killer album by Sendelica although not necessarily one of their best or most inspired. This is still available so get your copy now!
