Finally reissued on vinyl (with reproduced cover artwork) is a delightful, heavily orchestrated, baroque-tinged pop-psych gem, originally released in 1968 by Decca in The Netherlands only. Hailing from the south of California, musician Mike Tingley travelled Europe, but soon found himself stranded in Amsterdam, ofcourse flat broke. In order to earn some money he started playing small coffee houses and bars. An influential A&R manager got tipped, which resulted in a superb album, recorded with some of Holland's top studio musicians and with involvement from producer Tony Vos (also known from the psychedelic days of a.o. Boudewijn de Groot and Cuby & The Blizzards). 'The Abstract Prince' is wholeheartedly recommended to fans of a.o. The Beatles' 'Sgt. Pepper', Love's 'Forever Changes', The Zombies' 'Odyssey & Oracle' and the legacies of The Left Banke, Billy Nicholls, Mystic Astrologic Crystal Band, Merry-Go Round and the like. In other words, this is a truly essential LP for genre freaks!

BROWN, RAY/MOONSTONE - MAD HOUSE
