Releases information


This band recorded one of the most beautiful records in Danish rock history. This self-titled album presents excellent electric guitar rock with some folk influences. There are heavier compositions like Mountain Music Part 1 and 2 along with beautiful songs Blue Day's Morning or Gideon's Trap with nice calm piano working. Very good English vocal comes from Englishman Cy Nicklin. The music is often compared to many well known groups which results from unique style and quality. I prefer comparison to Crosby, Stills & Nash but it gives you only hazy idea.

The debut was particularly successful both commercially and artistically, a very entertaining and professional effort, somewhere stuck between ZEPPELIN, TULL and BEATLES. The second album was more folky but saw two members leave after its release, leaving Nicklin alone at the helm and recording the third album, sometimes bordering country music.
