4 stars A supergroup that somehow got lost in the shadows of prog music, Captain Beyond was a band that gave us some great heavy, yet sophisticated prog. The line up featured ex Deep Purple singer Rod Evans as well as ex Iron Butterfly members Larry Reinhardt (guitarist) and Lee Dorman (bassist) on the drums was Bobby Caldwell who had played with Johny Winter.

Released in 1972 on Capricorn records Captain Beyond by Captain Beyond is a heavy prog album with some psychedelic aspects. It is a great album because of it's flowing movement and enjoyable melodies. Unfortunately this album has really been swept away and become a lost gem in heavy prog.

It contains 13 tracks of no more than 4 minutes each. However many of the tracks flow into one another creating a few unified songs. It is a solid album that seldom contains obvious flaws. Therefore I gave it a 4/5 stars but really for me it is a 4.5/5 stars. I highly recommend this album to any heavy prog fan
