3 stars In the early 70's a number of Jazz/Prog rock outfits signed and recorded with Vertigo Records with AFFINITY being one of the stellar acts. AFFINITY were a 4 piece band led by lead singer Linda Hoyle (who has a gorgeous and powerful epic style voice) and keyboardist Lynton Naiff who plays some scrumptious 70's analog keys. Songs are nice and varied with the overall album posing a highly 70's styled music. Of instant attraction for me here was the fine bass, guitar and drum interplay which along with Hoyle vocals will make you drool. At times AFFINITY carries a "psychy" feel to their music and when combined with the orchestration gives the listener a wild connection. AFFINITY were a highly original band who wrote and recorded 1 fantastic album with great virtuosity and color. One of the finest examples of their musical competence is found on 12 minute version of "All Along The Watchtower". The fine folks at Repertoire have included a couple of bonus tracks from AFFINITY which nicely closes the chapter in this superb charming bands history. A great discovery...!
