    Preface:
    The original thoughts and ideas, when creating the story of "The Alchemis", started far deeper than this album can show.
    Mick Stubbs had read a book called "The Dawn of Magic", and had been deeply moved by the spiritual learnings into the art of Alchemy. . . .

Amendment to Home's 3rd issue - a concept album

  • I thought it might be interesting to show how the inner of the center-fold cover looks unfold. In addition I attach an excerpt of the graphic to the title song, 'The Alchemist' to give a chance to 'blow-up' at least one of the pictures.
