Love and Poetry was composed entirely by band member Dave Lewis. It captures the true original sounds of Irish psychedelic rock. Relatively unknown, this album has achieved certain cult status after 40 years and is eagerly sought after by collectors of the genre.[citation needed]

It is featured in Record Collector's Top 100 British Psychedelic Records of the 1960s.[2]

The producer was Rocky Shahan (Shahan Chowdhury) who played bass in The Konrads, a band which included David Bowie in an early line-up. He represented Pakistan in the V Festival Internacional da Canção in Rio with the song "The Best Man" in 1970.[3]
