Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
I didn’t know that Alan Stivell was on PA as I always thought he was just Folk, not properly prog. However this album has some prog moments, in particular “Delivrance” that’s my favourite track here.
It’s has been my first Stivell’s vinyl and it’s still the one that I prefer. I was lucky in chosing this one because my second (and last) purchase was Tremain In’Is that’s only harp and voice. Too much also for me.

Label: Fontana/6325 332 | Release: 1975 | Genre: Breton-Folk

Essential: a masterpiece of Folk music
At the time of buying this LP, I thought I was going to find a Stivell immersed in the Prog-Folk music… my surprise was great after listening to it completely: Totally unplugged, no instrument with electric cables. Today is one of my favorite records of this legendary harpist. And I think he took the risk to go back to his Breton roots and immerse us in the Breton-Folk music.

Essential: A masterpiece of Progressive-Rock music
Hands down, this record which is actually buried in oblivion, features about 30 minutes of pure magic – electric folk of its finest kind and not a bit less majestic and unique as the critically acclaimed work of Steeleye Span and others. And the remaining 10 minutes are absolutely good, too!
I got this album when I didn’t have a clue what Celtic folk was actually about. You cannot imagine how amazed I was when I dug that one out after having falling in love with all the electric folk stuff from the UK. And it’s today I found out that Dan Ar Bras (later of Fairport Convention) and the Yacoub siblings (of Malicorne) contributed to that album as well.

This review is based on the LP version of this album (the CD version if you can find it, apparently has additional songs). The first seven tracks formed side one, and are accoustic: Alan playing the harp and singing, with some additional accompaniment, all of of haunting and beautiful.

Essential: a masterpiece of Prog Rock music
For all intents and purposes, this was Stivell’s debut, and an impressive and mature debut at that. From the opening notes of the title cut, the openness and greenery of the rich Breton countryside is mainlined for the listener. One does not need to have set foot in Brittany to visualize that which Stivell paints so vividly. Most tracks are sung in French but are no less authentic for it.
Neil Diamond - Hot August Night (1972) MCA Records/MCA 2-8000 - 2LP/1st US Pressing - LP/FLAC In 24bit/96kHz

Label: MCA Records/MCA 2-8000 | Released: 1972 | Genre: Country-Pop

This is the ultimate Neil Diamond record. Not necessarily the best — he’s at his most appealing crafting in the studio — but certainly the ultimate, capturing all the kitsch and glitz of Neil Diamond, the showman.

"Time & Love" is an album by American vocalists Jackie Cain and Roy Kral featuring performances recorded in 1972 and released on the CTI label. The AllMusic review states "Although neither Jackie nor Roy do anything resembling jazz singing here, forget about categories; this is gorgeous music that cannot be shackled to a label".

"I Hear a Symphony" is the sixteenth album led by saxophonist Hank Crawford and his fifth released on the Kudu (CTI) label in 1973. AllMusic states, "This set is a cooker. Certainly the production is a bit dated, but the funky-butt moves in Crawford's soulful playing and the tough riffing of Gale more than transcend it".

Who better to follow up the greatest of all library LPs than Alan Moorhouse, a twisted genius whose musical output clearly proves that he couldn't have given a monkey's what anyone thought of him. From unlistenable marching band versions of Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep, to an entire album of demented Tijuana styled hymns to the hard hitting funk of his work for KPM, Moorhouse would surely have shocked and amazed us with more musical mayhem had his life not been tragically cut short at the end of the 1970s…
