EGG “SAME” ON UK DERAM NOVA

Categories: , ,
Description

EGG “SAME” (UK DERAM NOVA) 1970 nice copy   laminated cvr vg++  disc solid vg++ also

Egg marry abstract Canterbury jazz, ELP style symphonic workouts and absurd avant-gardisms and the results are masterful. “I Will Be Absorbed” is the musical equivalent of a madman taking a sunny-day run through the fields, and “While Growing My Hair” is always a good surreal singaglong. “Blane”, part of the mindblowing yet unimaginatively named “Symphony No. 2” suite, is basically noise music and is great example of how radical prog could be. Also keep an ear out for Dave Stewart (not the guy from the bloody Eurythmics as some people seem to think) and his entertaining keyboard theatrics which, in the last track particularly, steal the show. Prog doesn’t get much better than this, and if it weren’t for this album I probably wouldn’t listen to the genre as much as I do today.
