Where is Jules Verne when you need him? Listening to this album, will give you yearnings of time travel; to witness of the USA's greatest 60's Soul artists, backed by an exciting MOD Soul band from

Oh for Garnet rarest LP by far, fully backed by the now legendary 7 man Glaswegian MOD band "The Senate".
Enthusiastic exciting backing for Garnet who must have been impressed by the backing vocals of Alex Jackson & Sol Byron two gritty Scottish growlers. and the saxophone intrusions of Bob Mather. Adding authentic Soul depth to the two live performances.

1967 was of course the peak of the British Soul/MOD all nighter movement, and you can hear the crowd participation, just how much Soul was appreciated in the UK at the time. Listen to separate live sessions 1.Sussex University 2. Club A Go Go, Newcastle during his short UK tour in 1967.

An album for collectors who, like me, find a quiet place, a set of headphones. A moment of solitude to be transported back to the golden era of MOD. With the atmosphere whipped up into a frenzy by one of the best the USA solo artists of his time, backed by a dedicated MOD band who knew how to deliver the sound.

A killer LP and very hard to find, especially in this standout condition.
