The Rationals - The Rationals 1970 (Ace Records Ltd/Big Beat Records 2011)
On their sole, belated long-playing effort, the group tempered their spunky blue-eyed soul with more laidback influences from late '60s psychedelia and progressive rock. It's not bad, just not typical of what they were most known for, and not in the same league as their prime stuff.(allmusic.com)
Here is another effort by the Rationals released by Ace Records/Big Beat and i can second the review by allmusic. Nevertheless is here some interesting stuff from the band. To me the band sounds here in a more psych blues direction. One of my favourite songs of the album is 'Handbags and Gladrags'.
The release is really nice done by Ace/Big Beat with a very nice artwork. All in all 4 stars out of 6!
