This sought-after jazz-rock fusion rarity was originally released on the Vertigo label, complete with the collectible "Swirl" record center design, and brings together some of the best British jazz musicians of the '70s. Players included groups such as Nucleus, Brian Auger's Band, Soft Machine, Stan Tracy Group, Brian Smith (tenor and soprano saxophone, alto and bamboo flute), legendary guitarist Allan Holdsworth, Dave MacRae (Fender electric piano) and bassist Roy Babbington, to name a few

Considered a landmark in Ian Carr's career, 'Belladonna' is peppered with atmospheric excursions and ethereal qualities, as well as a darker fusion aesthetic and prog-rock sensibilities through Holdsworth's exceptional guitar playing. The album's moody yet funky vibe has echoes of Miles Davis' electronic era à la "In A Silent Way."
