1. Minerva (Homes) 2. Peek Strangely And Worried Evening (Cook) 3. Morpheus (Homes) 4. Trafalgar Square (Cook/Carlton) 5. Fates (Homes) 6. The Tale Of The Spider And The Fly (Cook) 7. Vesta (Homes) 8. Rolling And Tumbling (Cook/Carlton) 9. Mnemosyne (Homes) 10. Aurora (Homes) 11. Just As The Curtain Finally Falls (Cook) 12. Shifting Sands (Homes) - bonus track London trio Synanthesia were only together briefly, but in that time they made an album that has subsequently been hailed as a lost classic. With original copies (from 1969) changing hands for hundreds of pounds, Sunbeam is delighted to give it its first proper reissue, showing it to be a great lost British acid folk gem and a feast for lovers of acid folk and psychedelia.
'A mixture of delicate acoustic guitar, fluttering flute and shimmering vibraphone gives the music a distant, late night quality. If you can imagine Pentangle and the Modern Jazz Quartet playing Tudor jazz together, it may have sounded like this - a unique album' - theunbrokencircle.co.uk
'Memorable songs are set to vibes, oboe and saxophone, which lend an uniquely jazzy flavour to proceedings' - Record Collector
