Not their best but pretty good nonetheless. Some brooding soulfulness from PR, the usual economic but potent guitar from PK and that great rhythm section.

Pretty good ending to what was a great band, shame K wasn’t really there and Fraser had gone but a good album no less.


And then came Bad Company.

Speaking of Tull, one of those SW box sets - this one for A - is arriving in April.

I'm not a fan of the album, but I did enjoy the tour. This is probably the last one of these I'll pick up.

These sets look great but I’ve given up buying them as I never seem to play anything else other than the original album after a single listen, or not even that, to the other stuff. My loss.

Never mind, all good things come to an end. What a totally uninspiring band. No more melodic Fraser bass lines, heartfelt Kossoff guitar lines, Rogers cock rock lyrics whilst re imagining himself as Otis Redding....just a cash cow for the American audience.

They weren’t Free but the first two albums were pretty good, diminishing returns after that.

Moongarden - Round Midnight

Italian band, not RPI, much more Camel, with a bit of Radiohead. Generally symphonic.

Haven’t listened to them for a couple of years but this popped up on a shuffle play and boy did it sound good. Not exactly uplifting content, the theme is the loneliness of living in a big city.

Excellent track.

I enjoyed the music/band very much, but not the vocal effect used for the first couple of minutes. Much better from the third minute onwards! Hopefully get around to trying some more from them in the next week, shall add them to my list. Thanks.

I'm exactly the same Rob

I played the extra stuff once and that was it.

I've said it before but if the live concert was sold separately then I would buy it.

The A tour was very good and I saw them at The Royal Albert Hall when Eddie ran up the stairs to play the Hall's organ!

And yes Rob, the two Free albums contained some good stuff

Poor old Koss...

Incredible albums.

And there are so many more of equal stature - Imaginary Voyage and Aurora immediately come to mind


And JJ - you'd love this one from 1969:

On Progzilla radio.... (not being knowledgeable of his stuff, I think it is this set, hard to be sure. Recorded December 1976 anyway.)

This Fields is not the UK band, rather a 1 album US psyche blues soul prog kind of thing from 1969.

Epic and rambling but I find this track very appealing!
