Pink Floyd and The Incredible String Band.
The Incredible String Band.
The last track on the LP is an amazing Williamson composition called “Creation”, which lasts an epic 16.04 minutes. The song comprises several discrete sections in different styles, all of which are truly wonderful, and all are separated by a very short and catchy refrain “Verily verily, Verily verily”. It is a veritable masterpiece. Its entire lyrics are set out on the back cover, along with the track listing and the credits. The instrumentation is unique, as it features a guest artist: Robin lead vocal, guitar, gimbri, violin; Mike percussion, sitar, mandolin, vocals; Rose bass, percussion, vocals; Licorice percussion, kazoo, vocals; and *Ivan Pawle organ, piano. “*appears courtesy of Dr. Strangely Strange, Island Records Ltd.” [see way above!].
