Jackal is Canadian "one-shot" band which played heavy progressive rock in early seventies. They recorded only on album called "Awake" in 1972. Their music is very similar to early British progressive rock a la Beggar's Opera, Cressida, Fantasy but with harder edge in the vain of Deep Purple/Warhorse. Organ and guitar dominate the recording but we can also lsiten to harpsichord from time to time.
Charlie Shannon (vocals), Chris Kellesis (organ), Dave Bernard (guitar, bass), Lois Mutton (drums)
Amazon: "Released in 1973 on the obscure Canadian Periwinkle label, Jackal's Awake album became a highly sought-after album by collectors of heavy psychedelic & progressive rock. Eight tracks. Radioactive. 2004. "

For a second, I feared having read "Jackyl" - definitely not a prog band.

Good band indeed. This one "bites" a bit more than Amish, so I'm going to drop it for the Heavy Prog team. Let's see what they say...
