SOULS OF INSPYRATION - Souls Of Inspyration

This is a Canadian band who issued their only album in 1970. For quite a while I thought that they were a soul group, but that could not be further from the truth as they are in fact a good psyche/pop band. 'Pursuit' (which was also issued as a single) is a perfect example of the keyboard-driven style which makes up the album, with the following 'Strangers' also including a good fuzz-guitar solo, although for the most part the organ is the lead instrument. 'Sun Shines In Winter' is an atmospheric piece with some nice harmonies, while 'Dil Kusha' and 'Of Lambs And Wolves' deliver some great progressive keyboards over a couple of extended tracks. 'Eyes Of Nature' is a harmony-laden track in the style of CSN, while the closing 'Seasons Of Change' is an up-tempo song featuring some nice syncopated drumming and ends the album on a high. With original copies being very scarce it is good that it has finally appeared on CD with the addition of a bonus track, and is a recommended purchase.
