    wikipedia:
    British composer, pianist and founder member of The Enid.
    Born on the Leeds Castle estate in Kent, England, Godfrey was educated at Finchden Manor in Tenterden, which was described by its founder George Lyward as a "therapeutic community for adolescents", other alumni of which included Alexis Korner and Tom Robinson. Although he didn't start to play the piano until the age of twelve, Godfrey's talent was prodigious enough to gain him admission to both the Royal College of Music, then the Royal Academy of Music. He studied under concert pianist Malcolm Binns, and those around him included Sir Michael Tippett, Benjamin Britten and Hans Werner Henze.
    From 1968 to 1971 Godfrey became resident musical director with Barclay James Harvest, making musical contributions to early recordings which established their full, orchestral style of rock music. The relationship fell apart and accounts differ as to why. For a short time after this, Godfrey played in the band Siddartha. In 1974 the Charisma Records label released his first solo work, Fall of Hyperion. Although not a commercial success at the time, this work has since become collectable.
    He then went on to form The Enid, a band that is still performing and recording today.
    Recently, he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. As a consequence of this, he has revealed that he intends to retire from The Enid and allow the band to continue to perform without him.

    Thanks, I did have this LP somewhere in my collection, but I've not seen it for a few years. Perhaps I lost a box of records somewhere :(. Nice to be able to hear it again.
