For the first time on CD format, Collectables Records released both Mashmakhan albums (minus one inferior song from the Family album due to time restraints) together in one package. Looking back, Mashmakhan was ahead of their time; they did progressive rock for a commercial audience when prog was supposed to be for the underground. They incorporated flutes and strings in songs when hard rock was dominant, and they were one of the first Canadian acts to become international stars. This CD will finally give people a chance to judge for themselves what the fuss was all about.
