An ultra-rare and expensive privately pressed album by a certain Oliver Chaplin which is an amalgam of folk, blues, progressivism and psychedelia. All the material was written by Oliver. Its highlights include Freezing Cold Like An Iceburg, which sounds very like Captain Beefheart; In Vain, which has been likened to Pink Floyd's More Soundtrack; Flowers On A Hill, which has a sort of ragtime feel; Cat And The Rat, a length piece of guitar-driven progressivism and the folky Primrose and Orbit Your Factory

Immaculate recording, done by Oliver (Chaplin)'s brother, the BBC sound engineer who recorded Jimi Hendrix's famous radio sessions. Oliver was the music man no label could charm. Virgin certainly tried, but Oliver's contempt for the music industry just ran too deep. Standing Stone is an uncorrupted testament to his unique personal vision
