3 stars "Death's Crown" was a multi-media performance that HTM did on the dinner theatre circuit, circa 1973-74 or so. It comprises pieces that would later be developed on their Arista albums.

Not the greatest recording quality by any means (it's from rehearsal tapes at the band's house), but it does give you an idea of how their music developed. The vocal version of NY Dreams Suite" is rather inferior to the purely instrumental version on "Happy The Man" (the vocals and lyrics just saddled it really), but the real high point here is the beautiful "Merlin Of The High Places", which sends chills up my spine.
