Label : Davjon
This album is legendary for many reasons; Tubby Hayes is playing on it, the Mike Sammes Singers are the vocalists and the arrangements are absolutely insane, moving from hard latin jazz, through occasional swings and odd psych. Most of the hymns are hard to recognise until the vocals kick in, so you can use the album as a musical guessing game. Marvellous and totally unique.
