Bondar & Wise was American duo (organist + drummer) which played symphonic prog/jazz-rock in the vain of The Nice, ELP, Hansson & Karlsson, Sixty Nine, Magma, Hardin & York.
 
 
Allen Bondar / Hammond B3 organ, bass pedals, ARP 2600 synthesizer
Bob Wise / drums, percussion
 
They recorded only one live album "A Live Legacy"(probably in 1972) which was first time released on 2009.
 
(probably) mp3 samples (I'm not sure 'cos I have strange problem in myspace from few days: "Sorry, we had a problem getting what you had requested. Try again later". So I can't see if there are any samples or not Cry )
 
 
P.S. I sent more music of this band to harmonium.ro. (PM)

Yeah, the ELPness hit me over the head from those myspace samples (ELPness may sound amusing when you say it out loud, by the way).

Bondar & Wise, sounds to me as the most unimaginative ELP clones.
 
For God's sake, even the cover is a copy from Trilogy..
 
 
 
But, it's Symphonic beyond doubt....Will have to accept them...A yes from me
