"In 1972 Trojan Records was looking to cash in. They set their sights on the pop culture trends of the day and decided that Star Trek and the wave of new electronic easy listening and "Switched On..." moog based albums were the biggest things going. What could be better than to combine both with familiar reggae riddims, sit back and watch the cash fall into their laps? The production team of Joe Sinclair, Desmond Bryan, & Webster Shrowder called in Ken Elliot (formerly of progressive/psych rockers Second Hand) and his newly aquired ARP2600 synthesiser to do the job with a unknown group of studio musicians. The album Star Trek flopped. In 1973 they released a follow up album entitled Interstellar Reggae Drive credited to Colonel Elliot and the Lunatics." DISCOGS Spanish unique cover.
