A short-lived progressive rock outfit. Phil Ryan and Ray Taff Williams had both been with Man and Dave Charles guested on their 1973 Christmas At The Patti 10 inch album. Black Hole Star is mostly a keyboard-driven amalgam of psychedelic, progressive and R&B influences with some good guitar leads. The better tracks are the keyboard-led progressive Living In The World Today; Doom City, a mid-tempo semi-progressive number with R&B influences and good guitar work and Snow Covered Eyes, a strong piece with a good melody. Overall a satisfying album. It's worth noting that the logo on the back cover was designed by Rick Griffin. John "Pugwash" Weathers who played on some of the tracks later joined Gentle Giant in 1973.
