Review by Joolz
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars I saw Rare Bird in concert in 1974 but I cannot remember much about the material played except that I wasn't bowled over by it. By then their line-up had changed, the twin keyboard attack being replaced by a much more conventional guitar led set-up. With it went a substantial change in direction - out went Prog, and in came a combination of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gerry Rafferty and Sad Cafe! Make no mistake, the musicianship on this album is of a high standard, and there are some good songs if you like an Americanised sound combining southern boogie and soft rock, but sadly, there is very little Prog about it. For me, the 3 tracks which stand out are the less Americanised ones: this is not intended as a slur on American music, but merely reflects my personal tastes I guess.

The first of these is Redman, a soft rock piano led song, which has more individuality with some lovely harmonies. With a more English sound somewhat akin to Elton John, it is ironic that native Americans form the subject matter. Peace Of Mind enters Procol Harum territory thanks to a soaring organ, but its mood swings from soft lush harmonies on the verses to sections with a much heavier Deep Purple feel, the only real Prog moment on the album. The Last Tango In Beulah is not the best melody here, but it is an original arrangement with an interesting keyboard riff which picks up and flies to a nice climax. The remainder of the album is straightforward boogie and funk, some up tempo foot tappers, and some slower more reflective ones. All are played to a high standard.

Nothing here really for the average Prog collection, hence my low rating, but it is an enjoyable album thanks to the quality of playing.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars 'Born Again' is a great ROCK album, but there really isn't much 'progressive' about it - Graeme Field took the prog idealism along with him when he left Rare Bird after the exciting album 'As Your Mind Flies By'. That said, the songs here are very tight, undeniably well arranged, performed, and sound fantastic. Funky elements exist in many songs, though the main focus is definately on producing quality rock music of a high standard. Steve Gould has a superb voice, and, now with guitar (not a bass, unfortunately) in hand, manages a solo here and there, Dave Kaffinetti is a very strong keyboardist, and always tries to incorporate a brief solo wherever a song allows him to, whether it be on clavinet, e-piano, organ or Korg synth, and the rhythm section of Fred Kelly and Andy Rae (drums and bass, respectively) form a solid foundation which drive the songs along in a flawless fashion. Listening through to this LP, I struggle to find any weak spots, with the strong moments (IMO) being the driving, funky 'Live For Each Other', 'All That I Need', the beautiful 'Peace of Mind' (with lovely harmonies), the blissful and mellow 'Lonely Street' (actually capturing the 'feel' of a lonely street, whether it be legitimate or metaphorically - a very touching track) and, though it may be a little overlong, 'Last Tango in Beulah' with its excellent keyboard arrangement. That's at least half the album, with the remaining tracks being fairly decent too. 3 stars.

1 stars Their previous album had little to with their great organ sound and prog oriented earlier albums.

This band was really creative during their hey days, which few of us were able to share. I discovered the band in the early seventies thanks to their great hit-single "Sympathy". But their album works were really interesting as well.

IMO, the peak of their career was "As Your Mind Flies".

This album is on par (unfortunately) withy their previous "Somebody Is Watching". Very poor compositions : heartless, emotionless, progless. In a word : useless. Funky, soulish for most of the songs.

There is actually very little to remember from this album. "Piece Of Mind" starts promisingly, but turns out to be a syrupy rock ballad. Still, it is one of the few bearable songs featured on "Born Again".

The best advice is just to stay away from this dreadful album. I'm trying hard to find one single interesting song from this work. But this is like the quest for the Holy Grail. Impossible. Such a sad ending .

Still, this album might have been of some influence for a band like "Supertramp" especially if you listen to "Last Tango In Beaulah". The intro is particularly good and the keyboard play automatically reminds me of the upcoming work of this great band. The second (but last) good song here.

Unlike the title of this album, "Rare Bird" will never be born again. Unfortunately. One star.

4 stars What a wonderful group of the 70's. Excellent songwriting, a solid mix which captures the essence of the band's musicianship. "Redman" beams with imagery; "Peace of Mind" with solitude. An ecclectic group with the solid progressions so predominant of the era. You can't go wrong with Epic Forest, ... (read more)
