A great track from a very robust album

Sadly, none of the line-up are still with us

Some fine music but, highlighting once again, the lack of a decent vocalist. I always feel that prog bands require a distinctive vocalist eg Anderson, Gabriel, but so many ...Flash, Greenslade, Camel, Crimson etc have vocalists who sound as though they'd rather be in a blues band or are not very good at all


This isn’t a bad album at all. But it seems to me that Peter Banks was trying to match The Yes Album, and Steve Howe in particular. He failed on both counts. Also, I don’t think the cover image would have helped the band in the long run. So like Tony Kaye’s Badger, Flash were destined for Division 2 anonymity.

A fantastic track from Caravan:



That cover photo looks like my wife when she was expecting our first baby in 1977.

And off my fave Caravan album as well. Can sound very muso and sterile, but this is a great album

Has anyone heard of Phrozenlight?

Sounds like something I would detest. Ambient noise, no chords, just electronic noise.

Much like Eno and big chunks of TD I suppose. Right up some of your streets I should imagine. Come on chaps, get stuck in. Doubt you’ll have got through his catalogue in your remaining years - he’s already released 20 albums in 2019 so bit of a Forth Bridge Project to take on... :D

Thing is, reason I raise it is that the guy seems to have released an incredible 340 albums in the last 15 years! And they all appear to be ridiculously long. I clicked on a few (linked below), the shortest was 65 mins, others 105 mins, the longest over 3.5 hours.

Can’t say I am familiar with the Dutch Canterbury “scene” but this appears to be exactly that.

From 1970. They have recently released an album some 45 years after their previous one. 2 members have passed on in the gap.

Anyway, this is ok, can’t say better but it’s certainly interesting to hear. Can’t remember whether they have featured on here and (of course) the pathetically inadequate search function doesn’t show anything but that means nothing.

Pretty good sound for a bootleg. The AHM is the non-orchestrated version, which differs in various respects to the studio version, most notably in featuring lots of falsetto "ooh-ooh" vocals from Dave Gilmour and Rick Wright.

Saw this lot at Earls Court circa '74. I remember Nicky Horne playing this album as a world premiere exclusive on Capital radio, 'Your mother wouldn't like it' if I remember correctly. That was a great programme.

What a disappointment the cover was though.
