Tamam Shud was one of the most original and innovative Australian groups of the late '60s and early '70s. They played a very important part as pioneers of acid-rock and progressive music. For many years after they split, they were something of a cult, and their original recordings were (and still are) very hard to obtain. The evolution of Shud was typical of many groups of the era, beginning as an instrumental band, through "beat" pop songs and psychedelia, to progressive rock. From the original line-up (The Sunsets), through to Evolution, Goolutionites, Morning Of The Earth and Permanent Culture line-ups, the lingering "surf band" tag linked them with Sydney's northern beach surf culture. In reality, they established their major fan base on Sydney's university and college dance circuit, and with the "hippy" audiences at inner city underground venues like the Mandala Theatre in Darlinghurst and the Beacon Theatre in Newtown. A bonus track, "Bali Waters" features Richard Lockwood (from Tully) playing his ethereal flute on a mystical, psychedelic instrumental tune which is one of the highlights of this CD.
