about

A huge album of songs on themes of outer space. Featuring theremins, harmonies,instruments galore, electronica, strange songs and stranger interludes.

" A beguiling mish mash of Tamla, Steely Dan, bossa nova and cod cosmics." - Mojo Magazine

Christo was getting more involved with the Filk Community, and it gave him the idea of gathering his space songs together for a Filk album. It also allowed him to record in a more adventurous way than a folk-roots album would. Things also altered with the arrival of CCs new Theremin.

Popular with filkers and non-filkers alike, there is some of CCs best song work on here. The instrumental interludes paved the way towards his later work in electronic and new age music.

This is CCs best selling songs album to date.

influences - Paul Kantner, Country Joe McDonald, Teddy Randazzo, Little Anthony, Brian Wilson, The Gentle People, The Flower Kings, Lydia Kavina, Cheryl Wheeler, LTJ Bukem
