Album notes

Khan: Nick Greenwood (vocals, bass); Steve Hillage (guitar); Eric Peachey (drums). Additional personnel: Dave Stewart (keyboards). Personnel: Steve Hillage (vocals, guitar); Nick Greenwood (vocals); Eric Peachey (drums). Audio Remasterer: Paschal Byrne. Audio Remixers: Dave Grinsted; Derek Varnals. Almost stereotypically overreaching early-'70s progressive rock; quasi-operatic vocals, spinning guitar solos, lengthy suite-like tracks on the order of "Stargazers" and "Hollow Stone (incl. Escape of the Space Pilots)." The highlight is Stewart's effervescent organ work during the gentle and meditative passages. ~ Richie Unterberger

Editorial reviews 4 stars out of 5 -- [F]ar more than just an early staging-post on Hillage's musical journey. Actually it's a beautifully crafted landmark in English rock rightfully made available for the first time in over 15 years.

Jeff Gelb has been an avid (some would say “rabid”) comic book and pop culture collector and fan since the late ‘50s. In 1964 he started publishing fanzines with MEN OF MYSTERY, and was a frequent fanzine contributor throughout the ‘60s.

Then he started a career in radio as an air personality at stations in Cleveland and San Diego. He moved to Los Angeles in 1978 to enter the music industry, where he joined Radio & Records as an editor. While there, he hosted and wrote several nationally syndicated radio programs. He remains in the music industry and still lives in Los Angeles.

In 1988, Gelb saw his first work of fiction published, with SPECTERS, a horror novel. Since then he has edited or co-edited 22 anthologies of horror and suspense fiction, including the award-wining HOT BLOOD series. His SHOCK ROCK anthologies included new work from Stephen King and a Foreword by Alice Cooper, and were optioned for TV. He has worked with such authors as Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Clive Barker, and many others. He has written dozens of articles and interviews for magazines like Fangoria, Mediascene, Comic Buyers Guide, Comic Book Marketplace, and more.
