Totally, by far my favourite DH release. I've played this album tons of times & I still love it to death. I can never get over how varied & underrated Canterbury is.

I bought Livin' On Borrowed Time & Lightning to the Nations back in 1985/6 but shied away from Canterbury due to the pressing faults & the negative reviews I had heard. In the mid 1990s i did a bit of my own research & decided to track down a CD copy which was easier said than done at the time I finally found a Japanese CD via eBay which cost about £30, a lot for me at that time. I was amazed just how good this album was.


Death & Progress is a cracking album too, dunno why that doesn't get more praise either.
