That's fine with me. I have been able to listen to it this week & think that it's going to be a grower. Not as immediate as either of the Trace albums, a interesting addition of fusion to van der Linden's more symphonic leanings.

Done.

Incidentally, although Jack Lancaster played saxes/flutes in Blodwyn Pig he also played keyboards.

Wild Connections has a miniscule amount of treated horns - and is predominately him playing keyboards with Rick

It has so much depth - it is certainly a grower!

I think the debut still wins by a miniscule amount, but I would not be without either of these albums. Both are amazing.

Another fantastic album. Will be ordering the 2 CD remaster versions of both of these post-haste.

C, between the Mogul Thrash and these Trace albums I am flabbergasted. You are on a roll with your picks.

Lovely ending to week.



Thanks as always for the wonderful company. I might not be here next Friday - should be, but there have been significant (& ongoing) traffic delays on the journey I'll be taking. Most definitely hoping to be!
