Early 70's UK progressive folk album that is OK as background music, but it doesn't really make you listen to it. The female vocals are pleasant and the male vocals are barely adequate. There is nice mellotron on one track only: "Brooklyn Thoughts". Probably not enough here to make me want to move this album into the rotation. It really isn't bad, but there are only so many listening hours in a lifetime...

Sometimes the soul of the collector is against the ability to judge properly the quality of the music. Is the case of this only release of 9.30 Fly. In this gentle attempt of progressive-folk, it can be found a mix of amateur and professional musicians.  For one side, Wainwright couple was simply amateurs, Michael Wainwright fails as lead vocalist, but as a composer has some moments, except for the bad “September” and horrible “Time of War” that sports a long la la la la la la la, all the time out of tone. Barbara Wainwright not having a bad voice, needs some knowledge and training doing harmonies, 

all over the album sound basic and boring, and her electric piano playing is really poor. The rest of the group have more knowledge, so all the music in this album is sustained by the guitar of the most experienced of all, Lyn Oakey, who played for John Cooper Clarke, and in a band named The Invisible Girls. The rhythm section, do a decent job. Gary Charman, on bass, was the singer and plays in “My Generation” a tribute band for The Who, where he meet a drummer Gary Harper, who claims to have been playing in 9.30 Fly. Mike Clark (Mickey Clarke), the drummer was with a band named “The Outboys”.
