OK, the title of this album is rather plain and cover most 'cheap', but damn that its content is good! Castle Canyon is a American group, totally unknown, but has yet cracked shortly in the early 70s. A long tunnel over 30 years and a resurrection later….. Gods Of 1973 Thus, a progressive instrumental 'seventies' of very high bill, dominated by the full panoply of keyboards 'vintage' supported by an impeccable rhythm section and guitar more discreet but no less perfect. To clarify further, there may well sure to add that Castle Canyon sometimes evokes ELP, Trace and other Quill, but his personality is such that the Gods of 1973 made very quickly forget sake of rapprochement on the part of the listener. A treat!
Set 4: Jones Beach - July 25th, 1992. 2008 repressing of this deluxe eight CD box set, subtitled From The Manticore Vaults. Four epic concerts make up this suitably extravagant box set by the unchallenged kings of Pomp-Rock, whose majestic three-way instrumental interplay laid down the blueprint for the Progressive '70s. Features shows from Hartford Civic Center (1977), Chicago (1978), Pennsylvania and Jones Beach (both from 1992), 61 tracks. Volume #4 seemed to have completely caught me by suprise. Out Of The blue[excuse the unintended pun]. I was indeed unprepared; Since I own volumes I-III; I had no choice but to buy this ELP set. Volume IV contrasts dodgy to somewhat good -great audio performances of ELP specifically comparing/contrasting the ELP years of 1977/1978/1992. It is a true sucessor to volumes I-III.
