I just heard his latest, and, blimey, heís finally cracked it. Confluence
is a really gorgeous album thatís wholly satisfying.
Thanks for the tip, Alan. It's available on emusic, so it should be relatively painless to check out.
I've been listening to The Zombies a lot recently and in particular their album, "Odessey and Oracle" (Yes, the title was misspelt: long story there). They are basically one of those bands that was just missed by the public, and never got the recognition they deserved. If you're into psychedelic 60's baroque pop, then Odessey is one of the greatest albums you're likely to hear.
I remember hearing the Zombies' Time of the Season quite a bit on the radio when I was kid. Great song. A strange prog connection is that the Zombies' lead singer, Colin Blunstone, was a guest singer on Dave Stewart (of Canterbury fame, not the Eurythemics guy) and Barbara Gaskin's 1st 45, "What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted" (a great version, BTW).
I was in the time machine today, too. Listened to Chris Squire's Fish Out of Water.
