Dear Mr. Time

Grandfather, the 1970 sole outing from England’s Dear Mr. Time, is a concept album in which the finest elements of popsike and music hall – shades of The Move and “Paperback Writer” linger in the stately piano and distorted vocal treatment of “Out of Time” – are interspersed with an advanced degree of symphonic elements, as on the breathtaking “Prelude (To Your Country Needs You)”. Meanwhile, the strident “Make Your Peace” sounds like the doppelganger of “Fighting Cock” by Raw Material. Overall, a diverse yet cohesive set of spellbinding songs.
