    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    Jan Akkerman had previously recorded four singles with the Amsterdam band The Hunters before forming Brainbox with Kaz Lux in late 1968. Their album was characterized by Akkerman's hyperfast guitar technique and Lux's heavy metal throat (similar to Glenn Hughes in his Trapeze days). They aren't too far from Vanilla Fudge and Led Zeppelin on the heavy syrup treatments of Scarborough Fair" and "Summertime". The 17-minute show-off "Sea Of Delight" is a bit long-winded with its immature progressive development and an horrendous drums solo, but "Dark Rose" pointed the way forward with a captivating melody and more inspired guitar and flute riffing (which indeed predated the heavier aspect of Akkerman's next group). This was an album of great promise which failed to deliver completely satisfying results. In November 1969 Akkerman accepted van Leer's invitation to join Focus and a lucrative career. Brainbox struggled on but the successive departures of van der Linden and Lux finally killed them off in 1972. Buying one of the collections with tracks only released as singles will give you a better overview of Brainbox than their only proper album (the CD re-issue will do fine, though!).
