Ophiucus - Salade Chinoise (Barclay 1973)

On this second album Ophiucus offers once again a mix of delicate finely crafted songs ranging from psy-folk-rock to soft pop. While appealing to a maybe more mainstream audience it might not be as strong as their first album but is definitely worth listening to. It will also grow on you.
