This is one of the rarest collectors’ items - a ‘holy grail’ for Vertigo label aficionados - with auction prices for a mint original LP (when available) reaching a recent auction peak of £1,625.
‘Ben’ was the band’s only release on the progressive Vertigo ‘spiral’ label in 1971. It is packed with ambitious instrumental arrangements of inspired jazz-rock, performed by a talented five that represented the best of the Canterbury scene, the movement that flourished in the early 1970s. This album will appeal to all fans of that adventurous era, when bands such as Soft Machine and Caravan ruled.
