The are few modern albums that reflect the real spirit of the music in the 1960s. The haunting effect of something like Procol Harum's "A Whiter Shade of Pale" is hard to find today. James McCarty's has survived a long musical journey through the 1960s and beyond to the 1990s with his message quite intact. The whole album has an other-or future-world feel and yet no fussiness. There is real clarity here. The title cut is remarkable.
