New album from The Flower Kings/Transatlantic guitarist/composer Roine Stolt and eccentric singer Nad Sylvan (Unifaun)
Their common love of late 60's and early 70's prog is all over this album - Bowie - Lennon - Gabriel - Mercury - ELO - Zappa - Yes - Procol Harum.
An album that took off being planned as an acoustic album by Roine Stolt but once singer Nad Sylvan got involved
turned into a full band project.
3 favourite drummers tracked drums for the 12 tracks, Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson,XTC,Stickmen etc ) Zoltan Csörsz (TFK,Karmakanic) and Jimmy Keegan (Santana,Spocks Beard Live ) the eccentric Biggo Zelfries (Walrus Farm) did most of the piano,violin and analogue keyboards and TFK bassist Jonas Reingold add some fretless bass spice too.
First edition is a LTD digipac with a full 77 minutes of music and a 20 pages beautiful book.
