Unicorn were 'discovered' by the Floyd's David Gilmour playing at a wedding reception. He invited them to record some demos in his studio and helped them get a deal on Harvest/Charisma/Capitol.

Gilmour played pedal steel guitar on several of the Unnicorn albums, recorded a cover of their song 'There's No Way Out Of Here' on his debut solo album, and used them as backing musicians for early Kate Bush demos.

Thanks for that, but, are they any good?


I like 'em. Maybe an acquired taste? I honestly believe the first side of Blue Pine Trees is just about perfect, and after that they only sometimes hit those peaks.

It is sort of Firefall-like soft country rock, saved from blandness by the introduction of incongruous Britishisms and some top notch songwriting (which as noted was not consistent).

New to me, track showed upon a Spotify playlist based on the Unicorn album a couple of days ago.

Never heard of him before but this is really nice folk from 1970, from the John Martyn, Kevin Ayers, Roy Harper school. Still performing well into his 70s.

The lad's best album in my opinion although the one before Rainmaker and the one after Window are almost as good

They look great albums: enjoy them.

My children clubbed together and bought me the Pink Floyd Later Years box set for Christmas.

Lots of stuff there for me to dig into, as I’m a big fan of this era. Well, all Pink Floyd eras, of course.

Not a patch on the debut but it has its moments.

Only Peter and Graham left from the original line-up

I really like these great little sets and there's loads of stuff on there that I've never heard before, let alone even heard of. Steered clear of the Floyd sets, got all their albums and a few other bits and pieces so that'll do me. As you said, enjoy.

I take your point, but I was pleased to receive this set, because of the blu-ray of Delicate Sound Of Thunder, which has never seen a DVD release and my VHS copy is, of course, obsolete. Also blu-rays of Venice & Knebworth from the same era. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, has had a complete makeover and sounds incredible. But yeah, it's for fanboys only, but seeing as how i am one,,, :D.

The debut had moments, this one had a moment (when the needle left the record )

I saw him early last year. He was excellent.

Of course Mick Ronson plays lead guitar on Fully Qualified Survivor.
The house that Clete’s musician friend had told him about was a sun-faded pink art deco place stuck back in a cove where a desiccated shrimp boat lay on its side in a slough overgrown with vines and palm and persimmon trees.
