Dean, Elton's Ninesense
Happy Daze + Oh! For The Edge

Dean, Elton's Ninesense: Happy Daze + Oh! For The Edge (Ogun)
Label: Ogun    
Released in: Great Britain    

"We all know by now (because Elton keeps on saying it) that Ninesense is the spiritual heir of the 1969/70 Keith Tippett Group, but it's also rather more than that.
