Eela Craig - One Niter (remastered)

SKU 23-Reactive 1007
Eela Craig were from Austria and are lumped in with the German groups because...well, how many progressive rock Austrian groups were there anyway? The band was formed by keyboardist Hubert Bognermayer in 1971 and released a very rare first album that no one ever heard until it was reissued many years later by Garden of Delights. Their second, the classic symphonic rock-based One Nighter, from 1976, was for many years often thought of as their first release. While this was released many years ago on a 'two-for' CD, the problem is that one of the best/longest tracks was left off to squeeze two albums onto one CD; the complete album is released for the first time here!

"Under the wing of well-known producer Uli Rützel, and on a major label, Eela Craig gained international recognition for a refined form of classical rock that blended lyrical folk and high-tech space fusion. One Niter, their most symphonic, is a fine example of very high technical quality within the rock idiom that, apart from showing a touch of Pink Floyd influence and some jazzy diversions, is highly original."-The Crack in the Cosmic Egg
