It's somewhat odd that the members of Travel Agency -- whoever they were -- didn't put their names anywhere on this album. It is known that the band included Frank Davis, who is perhaps best remembered for writing "Grand Candy Young Sweet" for Fever Tree. The Travel Agency played a pedestrian but occasionally appealing mishmash of pop, blues, and psychedelia, with fairly decent vocals and a few unusually sophisticated arrangements. Among the latter is the opening instrumental "What's a Man," which sounds like it might be the soundtrack to a short suspense or horror film. The album is very much a period piece and only of interest to serious fans of early psychedelia.
