Is there any fans of this long forgotten progressive band and realted. I mean ANDROMEDA, LEAF HOUND, DAEMON, HARD STUFF etc. I think Vincent Crane - the best keyboard player on pro-music. He could mix lots of styles. From heavy progressive to jazz-rock and pure blues.

I've got their debut 1970 album with the line up of Vince Crane,Nick Graham and Carl Palmer.It is a classic IMO. I havn't got any albums after that by them. BTW wasn't Carl Palmer replaced by Rick Parnell who happened to be the son of the band leader Jack Parnell?

That's right. Rick Parnell, the son of Jack, was a member of AR. But in the beginning he played there for 2 months and was replaced by Paul Hammond (a great drummer by the way). Only when Hammond and John Cann went to form DAEMON he came in and wrote two fantastic songs for AR - little bit of inner air (I think he aslo sings there) and All in satan's name with incredible drumming
