Julian's Treatment - A Time Before This (1970)

The one and only album by this UK band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, organ, flutes and vocals.

The band was lead by Julian Jay Savarin who in 1971 released another album who mistakenly is attributed to this band. That album is not from this band.

This album was released as a double LP and later on single CD. The latter one is probably a bootleg. 

This album is a concept album too. 

The music is a mix of psych, early symphonic prog and folk rock.

The vocals are female. The music is rather pastoral with some outbreaks of wild guitars to spice up the music. Which it does.

The music ebbs and flows as you would expect from a concept album. The sound is good and the music is well crafted.

Some of the music is good and some of the music not so good.

This is still an interesting album and one to check out.

2.5 points
