Hey and how's about JOE Thomas' "Feelin's From Within" lp ? May be slick, but that "Polarizer" has got some incredible keyboard stuff by either Barry Miles or Pat Rebillot that will appeal to any KozmiGleeson fan.

Leon Thomas is all things good on the kosmigroov world. A personal fav of mine that I can't stop playing is 'Its my Life I'm Fighting For' from Full Circle....killer groove with some great solo's, more political stlye singing than the usual yodelling mayhem...

Side two of Gold Sunrise On Magic Mountain contains two tunes (Na Na/Umbe Weti) that are performed as one side-long piece. They are driven by a hypnotic piano riff, and chug along in a wonderful deep and solid groove. Leon Thomas embellishes this groove with all the yodels and yelps you could ask for. There's a point about half-way where the whole thing suddenly clicks into that 'zone' were music really clicks all your on-switches. The only thing that lets this side down is when you get the band introductions at the end. After that beautiful free-form vocal performance, recognisable words kind of spoil it bit.

I really like "Song for my father" on "Blues and the Soulful Truth".
There are 3 very good songs on "Spirits Known and Unknown"
