5.0 out of 5 stars Memories of a time when music was magical., 2 Oct 2007
This review is from: A Breath Of Fresh Air: A Harvest Records Anthology 1969-1974 (Audio CD)
I love these samplers. This is a 3 CD set from Harvest who were EMI's "progressive" arm. During the 1970's the label was the home for some of the top names of the genre and a goodly sprinkling of these names will be found on "Breath of Fresh Air".

Music was inventive then and although there still are those producing thoughtful and thought provoking music, these were halcyon days. Acts ranging from the Edgar Broughton Band through the Third Ear Band, Kevin Ayers, Michael Chapman and Roy Harper mingle with established Top of the Pops fare like the Move, Electric Light Orchestra and Deep Purple are all included here.

Being the kind of music that it is, getting to grips with some of the offerings here can take some work on the part of the listener. The Third Ear Band are not immediately accessible for some people but working at it will lead to rewards.

You won't be disappointed with this 3 disc goody. Barclay James Harvest, Pretty Things, Syd Barrett, the excellent Quatermass, Babe Ruth and Be Bop Deluxe, the list goes on. Your ears deserve a treat from one of music's most amazing era's.
