I remember seeing a copy of this album in a Brussels, Belgium record store (back when they existed), and coming this close to buying it.  I didn't know anything about the band, though I did recognize Jan Akkerman's name, rather the cool cover captured by attention.  There's just something fascinating about DUtch artist Jacques Bontje's beehive styled structure on the cover.
