After all those years hearing about the Imaginos idea this record just sounds like a patchy and inconsistent record. I expected more.

Despite its messy gestation and indifference to it on its release, this is BOCs lost classic. If only we could have had the 3 volume complete Soft Doctrines of Imaginos as Albert Bouchard envisaged.

The story is a little convoluted, but the musicianship is tight and there are some excellent cuts here. A welcome addition to the BOC catalog.
