"Both amazing rare LP´s who where pressed at Deroy studios. THOS ARE THE BEST DEROY ALBUM so far. Loner vibe, beautiful vocals and the music is just great. Mick passed away sadly many years ago but his amazing music will stay forever. His sweet composition (real compositions on paper) and lyrics have a bittersweet touch and are much darker as they sound at the first place. From the first album only 30 where pressed ever only 3 with hand-drawn pictures and writings (in red with his own blood!). From the second album 50 where pressed. If you like Michael Angelo with a Billy Nichols touch, this one is yours. The recording quality is top major studio but made at his home. Half of the tracks on both albums are electric the other half acoustic, a full band behind each song." (Shadoks)
"First reissue of both Mick Stevens albums, originally released in 1972/75, and extremely unknown. Stevens is credited on: words and music, vocals, guitars, banjo, percussion, bouzoukitars. "Loner vibe, beautiful vocals, a mixture of acoustic and electric numbers. If you like Michael Angelo with a Billy Nichols touch, this one is yours. The recording quality is top major studio. Both albums where pressed at Deroy studios, the famous collectors label among Psych and Folk freaks. All Deroy albums are rare because you could press as little as 10 copies for a start. So most Deroy production are under 100 copies pressed. Some famous Deroy LP's are: Candida Pax, Parameter, Complex, Circulation...This 2 album set, which features that came out separately in 1972 and 1975, beats all other Deroy productions, sound-wise and music-wise. Mick Stevens was able to create a sound of emotions with an underground touch. Just like in the movie Blow Up." (Forced Exposure)
