The latest project from two-thirds of Saint Etienne is a compact disc and deluxe double LP of music that represented the transition from psychedelia to prog as the 60s moved into the 70s. Most of it is not an easy listen, but it's always interesting, melodic, melancholy, with jazz and folk touches. While America may have licked its wounds at the turn of the seventies by turning to singer-songwriters, purveyors of homilies like teach your children well, Britain wasn't so ready to give up the trappings of psychedelia.
