1967/ 1976
4 stars If The Moody Blues, Barclay James harvest, Procol Harum, Nirvana (UK) or pre "666" Aphrodite's Child are your bands certainly Rare Bird is another band for you. In fact I have this impression when I listen to "Symphaty", a good compilation from first two albums of Rare Bird. "Symphaty" was the only song that I know but the rest of the songs in this compilation was good as an example of early Prog, also if not fuly in Prog expression. The sound is a gat organ (hammond) sound but not in the vein of Atomic Rooster or Iron Butterfly, because the music is generally easy and sweet.

Rare Bird is a good band, an example of early Prog and, in my opinion, a band with music aged too well.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
