Reissued later in the 1970's as Straight Ahead. Recorded at CBS Studios, Whitfield Street, London, England and at RCA’s Music Center of the World, Hollywood, California.
With "Straight Ahead" they could now be called a "lite" contemporary jazz/rock ensemble. Gone were the exciting days when Brian would peel the paint off the walls with his screaming Hammond organ rides while his band would emphatically push the envelope of modern progressive music.
