Rumpelstiltskin:
Shame this band did not make it into the big time. This was basically a project made up from the top UK session players at the time. Unsure if they even played gigs, as all 5 of them went under pseudonyms for the purposes of the LP.
Being session players, the music is of course, very well performed. A really funky organ and rhythm section, dirty distorted sounding guitar and a really excellent soulful vocal on top. The bass playing in particular here is truly amazing! Really great catchy tunes throughout with plenty of improvisation without being pretentious at all.

Black Magician:
It's immediately apparent that on album number two, this band have opted for a smoother, more sophisticated sound. Fans of lighter prog fare (Styx, Rush, Kansas) find stuff to love here.
