There are some albums that I instantly fall in love with. This is one of them. There's some catchy mellower folk on here, but also some BLAZING atmospheric garage psyche!
"My Castle Has Fallen" rocks like Grand Funk, the spooky but upbeat "When You're Dead" could have easily been in Arthur Brown's repertoire, while "Hearts And Flowers" is a soothing tune that falls somewhere between Mary Hopkin, Fairport Convention and Pentangle.
The Ghost formed in the late 60s releasing just one record before changing their name and splitting up. If anyone knows more info, post a message!
The most curious thing is how "Night of the Warlock" is seriously close to Mungo Jerry's "In the Summertime" a year later - if it was darker...and about warlocks.
I bought my copy on eBay, for $22, which is still cheaper than the $38 Amazon charges.
