3 stars I think that 'Wings To Rest' was released after the band had already broken up. This was a collection of previously unavailable material that had been recorded in 1978 and 1979, and show the band in a much more jazz fusion vein. The twin guitars are still very much to the fore and any fan of good guitar will love the opener "A Red Rose And Whisper Of A Devil". Unfortunately the sound inconsistencies that bedevil the first album also come back here somewhat so that at times the impression is of listening to a second generation tape instead of a CD taken from the masters. But, what can't be hidden is that these are fine musicians with a strong understanding of each other and the impression again is that they have been recorded 'live'.
