3 stars 3.5 stars really

One of the forgotten groups who gone under the radar in the glorious '70s is for sure the british Starange Days. Despite the unknown status , they managing to release a quite good album in 1975 who turned to be their only one. 9 parts to the wind is the title of the album and is a pleasent ride if you like bands like Kestrel, Druid, Supertramp Fruupp and alike. The music is well played and melodic , sometimes keyboard orientated sometimes poppy based on vocal department but all in all all pieces have clearly a progressive rock direction. All pioeces stands as good, with a plus on first 2, at least for me. So, a fairly good album and definetly needs attention to prog lovers, some of the musicians involved were active after the disbanding of Strange Days, for example the keyboardist Eddie Spence was invited to join the excellent Gordon Giltrap band, or the drumer Eddie McNeirl was part of the band Illusion (who had members from Renaissance), the rest pretty much gone unnoticed. 3 solid stars rounded to 3.5 , a fairly decent and enjoyble release by this obscure group. Nice art wok awell.
