Shiva Jones was the iconic vocalist with Island Records' supergroup
Quintessence during their mercurial 1969-72 reign.
Although periodically active in new musical ventures in both Australia
and the US during subsequent decades, he made no commercially released
recordings and had left the Quintessence repertoire frozen in time.
Then, 35 years later, Shiva recruited some of his favourite musicians,
including original Quintessence guitarist Maha Dev and Swiss keyboard
wizard Rudra Beauvert, to collaborate on a series of remarkably fresh
studio recordings featuring old Quintessence favourites along with some
wholly new material.
Here, remastered from the original mixes, and with a track listing
personally selected by Shiva, is the very best of these recordings.
