review...
Yet more left-overs from the end of winter and early spring of 1999, the same era as the "Time Capsule" material, specially selected by Jim Tetlow, with some additional over-dubs by Maureen. The title is a reference to The Beatles' "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and there is a good deal of psychedelia going on in this, be it heavily electronic with the late Dave Johnson doing some of his most inspired out-there guitar work. It's all very spacey and esoteric stuff, with a lot of big instrumental sections, featuring keyboards and synthesizers, and Shapeshifter compositions/improvisations that never made it on to any other album.

Versions...
CD-R: 20 copies - released 2008.
