|Studio album by Gryphon|
|Recorded||March - April 1973|

The album was produced by Lawrence Aston and Adam Skeaping, and engineered by Skeaping and Nick Glennie-Smith. It was recorded at Riverside Recordings and Livingston Studios. The gryphon cover illustration was done by Dan Pearce.
Writing retrospectively for AllMusic, critic Bruce Eder said: "The material is essentially progressive folk-rock, elements of jazz and swing...juxtaposed with traditional folk songs, works attributed to Henry VIII, and folk-style originals. Brian Gulland's and Richard Harvey's bassoon, krumhorns, and recorders are the dominant instruments".
