The Third Ear Band were a late 60's/mid 70's quartet who were fixtures at ALL the festivals & who used hand drums, oboe, violin/viola & cello to make a dark, pagan & medieval-influenced, acoustic music. The only thing that comes close to their sound is some small bits of the early Univers Zero records. They made several albums for Harvest and eventually fell apart.
Due to interest/nostalgia/whatever, the group reformed in the mid/late 80s featuring original band leader Glen Sweeney (drums/percussion) and other collaborators, both new and old. This one, which is a studio recording from 1992, and the final recordings from the reformed band features Lyn Dobson (ex Soft Machine!).
While you would not guess that this was outtakes of their 1960s material, it still absolutely has THAT SOUND intact.
“Another unedited chapter in the ongoing story of Third Ear Band, still with the same line up in the 90's, Dobson, Carter, Black and the revered Sweeney, they again recreate the legend of which they have been part for more than twenty years. But this time, they explore new pathways. The beat of percussion accompany acoustic and electronic atmospheres, ballads and sound of the wind and earth, waves which flow through the senses.”
