Indian Summer released one, quite collectable on RCA's progressive subsidiary, Neon, in 1971. It is typical of 1971 English proto-prog, featuring lots of Hammond and a somewhat bluesy rock singer. It's in the same general vein as Spring and Cressida and also, to my ears most strongly, although they never heard each other, the 1971 version of Kansas who had their demos released by us as "Proto-Kaw"! They were very good and very under known.
35 years later, Record Collector Magazine assembled this...

"Sprawling space sounds tell stories of far galaxies - the music fuses single instruments into each other and the sound gets a swirly acid madness...

Truly excellent instrumental technical (and I mean *technical*) metal group from Columbia, South Carolina, of all places.
Using dual guitars, bass and drums, this is fast and hyper-complex stuff, straight out of the Blotted Science, Animals As Leaders school.
This stuff is brainy, fast and furious and 'Aural Kaleidoscopes' is a great description of what they do.
As my pal Ken, who turned me onto them in the first place, said: "This album is ludicrous and you need to own it. Highly recommend

“Ever the hugely popular IQ album that saw the return of Peter Nichols to the fold in the early nineties is now 25 years young!
To mark this occasion GEP are releasing a special definitive 3 disc edition of the album with a 2018 remix by Mike Holmes. Presented in a 4 panel digipak format with a 40 page booklet, the package includes extra material on the first disc, along with newly recorded live versions of the whole album on disc 2.
Disc 3 (DVD) contains a surround sound mix of the studio album.

IQ were one of the original wave of UK neo-progressive bands that emerged in the early 1980s. Other than a couple of very commercial albums they did for a major label in the late 80s, they have been a consistently good progressive rock band for 30 years! This, their 10th studio work, comes with a somewhat reconfigured lineup and delivers the goods to the point where this is one of their best ever!

"With its endless, droning minor-key riff and mumbled vocals, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" is arguably the most notorious song of the acid rock era.
