Double album which encompasses only about an hour of music and strangely plays at 45rpm; Robert John Godfrey explains that by doing this the quality of recording and playback is enhanced. Sides A, B and C features single, long pieces whilst Side D has two short ones.
I'm a long-time Enid fan - yes, I was there at the start in 1976 - and although it's not my favourite album, Side C, 'Autumn', is up there with 'Fand' as my all-time favourite piece of Enid music.
