Third Ear Band - Live CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-VP 157
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 late 80s featuring original band leader Glen Sweeney (drums/percussion) and other collaborators, both new and old.
This CD was recorded in Gorizia, Italy on November 24, 1989 and this is a great live gig played by a fine line-up:

Glen Sweeney (hand drums)
Mick Carter (electric guitar and effects)
Lyn Dobson (flute, sax)
Neil Black (violin)

The sound is so close to the original band at times, that you would never guess that these recordings are from 20 years later, although the over-all sound is slightly more electric (ala MacBeth, their third and final 70s release). This still absolutely has THAT SOUND intact and fans will love this. Recommended!
