"Most would probably agree that this is one of the very best psych-style LPs from the 1980s. Not retro at all, but (like Bobb Trimble) a piece of the late 1960s preserved from time's rust. Male-female vocals lament and serenade 'the quest for knowledge of love and beauty' in an appealing soundscape, with lyrical guitar leads throughout, good use of mellotron, occasional tablas, flute and bells. The recording has a definite 1981 sound but (again like Bobb) this somehow becomes an advantage. The vocal blend is superb and may recall Anonymous and Bermuda Triangle, while the wistful mood and beautiful melodies is a bit like British band Ithaca or the melodic sides of Seventh Dawn. Moments such as 'Beautiful Dreamer' go truly deep. [T]his is recommended to anyone open for a folk-psych trip inside the melancholy and bliss of an acid-fueled romance." --Patrick Lundborg, The Acid Archives; Includes a 24-page illustrated lyric booklet.

On The Road To The Garden is a release of Johnny Blackburn from the In Wind's Eye Music. His music has a jazzy, sophisticated innocence with a melodic brilliance which shines and enhants. The trumpets, flutes, oboes and other synth sounds dance on the celestial textures of voices and soothing percussion like light on a vast ocean. His use of timpani evokes the feeling of being on the threshold of a wonderful and transcendent discovery. This CD will lift your spirits and inspire you to bloom in the garden of your heart.
"A jazzy melodic brilliance which captivates and enchants."
"I've heard a lot of CD's, but this guy's music is the most originally refreshing in a long time. Hypnotically a hit."
-Chuck Workman WTPI - Indianapolis
