Sealed 1968 Stereo Original. “Steve Marcus' First Solo Album Was An Audacious And Overlooked Early Jazz-Rock Fusion Effort, Predating By A Year Or Two The More Celebrated Innovations In This Field By The Likes Of Miles Davis And John McLaughlin. All But One Of The Six Tracks Are Instrumental Versions -- Mildly To Radically Extended -- Of Then-Recent Rock Songs, Among Them "Eight Miles High" (A Natural For The Jazz Treatment), The Beatles' "Rain" And "Tomorrow Never Knows," "Mellow Yellow," And The Less Likely Herman's Hermits Hit "Listen People." In A Way It's A More Free Jazzy, Wholly Instrumental Outgrowth Of The Similarly Near-Forgotten Early Fusion Group The Free Spirits, As Three-Fifths Of The Free Spirits (Who Had Put Out A Slightly Earlier Album On ABC) -- Guitarist Larry Coryell, Drummer Bob Moses, And Bassist Chris Hills -- Make Up Three-Fifths Of The Band On Tomorrow Never Knows. Coryell Contributes Some Fierce Electric Guitar Work (Getting Into Some Feedback On "Tomorrow Never Knows"), And Mike Nock Some Psychedelic-Style Electric Keyboards, Though Bandleader Marcus Does Assume The Greatest Prominence With His Coltrane-Ish Saxophone Improvisations. "Eight Miles High" And "Tomorrow Never Knows" (Where Coryell Really Lets Loose) Are The Most Successful Tracks, With The Closing Gary Burton Composition "Half A Heart" Taking The Band Back To More Introspective, Straighter Jazz Grooves.” Richie Unterberger, AMG.
