Great Classic album/s!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: REFUGEE c/w LIVE IN NEWCASTLE (Audio CD)
These guys hit an amazing creative vein when they formed back in 1972/3, following the break up of the Nice etc.
With 3 talented musicians seamlessly linking together, the future must have looked exceptionally bright - until the lure of the keyboard spot at Yes came calling to Patrick Moraz and Jackson and Davidson once again found themselves one short of a trio!!
We should be grateful that they were able to produce this masterwork in the time spent together and it is also good that there is a reasonable quality live recording of this composition. However, the underlying emotion is one of disappointment that the band flickered so brightly, but so briefly. Especially galling as Moraz' sojourn with Yes did not prove particularly successful either - a few additional phrases to the almost completed Relayer album and then the following tour.
Oh well, at least we have these memories....
