Brilliant poetry like story to song telling tales of the seasons,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seasons (Audio CD)
I loved this the first time I heard it back in the 70's on the Saturday Radio One Show and went out to my local record shop and bought it.
One entire side of the LP consists of the story of the Four Seasons as an entire uninterrupted track with 6 tracks on the flip side. It is a very well-constructed of nature and life during the year describing the seasons as they come and go - each one fades into the other reflecting the mood and seasonal changes. In my opinion it is a classic of its time but still stands up today as a great musical recording production.
As I write this review the sun has come out for what seems like the first time and if I quote from the Summer Song,
"Hey Mr Sunshine
Like a Harlequin
You're dancing on my picture book today
It's a good time
I'm a paper kite
And I'm floating far away".
It sums up the sunny times we are going through - shame most people are at work lol
The final track 7 is perhaps my favourite - The Airport Song and tell the tale that we are all too familiar with waiting for a delayed flight to take off when we are waiting to get home to see our loved ones - in this case because of the fog - similar sentiments to those of Joni Mitchell and Paul Simon on their travels but in a different way and very uplifting at the end when the fog lifts.
Magna Carta writes in an innocent way throughout but that's no bad thing in this day and age - you will certainly be taken on a great journey with some great musicianship and vocals.
This is a real treat and very pessimistic piece of work and as a Chair of Warrington Nature Conservation Forum its right up my street catch us on our Facebook Site. Plus if any teacher/parent played track one they could use it to teach about the seasons and the changes that impact not only nature but also people.
