Third Ear Band - Spirits

SKU 28-GZO428.2
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 was recorded at Tuxedo Club, Piacenza (Italy), on January 14th, 1989, TEB's Spirits is a great live gig played by a wonderful line-up: Glen Sweeney (hand drums), Mick Carter (electric guitar and effects), Lyn Dobson (flute, sax) and Ursula Smith (violin).
The sound is so close to the original band at times, that you would never guess that these recordings are from nearly 20 years later. This still absolutely has THAT SOUND intact and fans will love this. Recommended!
