I have the original disc from 1970 and this CD with the last track "Vivaldi with Cannons". At the time I was really taken by the creative and complex nature of this UK band, and the voice (and looks) of Sonja Kristina Linwood. I saw them in Bournemouth in 1971 and was really impressed by the power and drive of their music. Even listening to the CD today I must say Air Conditioning contains a rich collection of different fantastic songs. The CD moves from the intense "It Happened Today", the great violin in "Stretch", the haunting "Situations", and the fantastic "Vivaldi" (and "Vivaldi with Cannons"). It is a shame that the original has not been digitally re-mastered because I think it would sound even more impressive today. This is one of my real favourites of the early 70's.

“Air Conditioning” – Curved Air

Curved Air is one of the best known rock bands of the early 70. “Air Conditioning” from 1970 was their 1st album – and the rare 1971 ‘picture’ version became a real collector’s item. I’m not sure why, but confusingly there are a number of different versions available some with and some without the final “Vivaldi with Canons” track.

Vivaldi became something of a rock classic featuring the electric violin of Darryl Way. But the whole album is excellent with Francis Monkman’s guitar and the brilliant distinctive vocals of Sonja Kristina. My only reservation about recommending this excellent album, is the sound quality – which is poor. If ever an album called out to be remastered, this is it. Anyway, that's why I have only given 4 stars.
Surely, a rerelease of the picture version and re-mastering, would have been a great opportunity?

The tracks are:-
1. It Happened Today
2. Stretch
3. Screw
4. Blind Man
5. Vivaldi
6. Hide & Seek
7. Propositions
8. Rob One
9. Situations
10. Vivaldi (Canons)

This is a timeless classic which brought Vivaldi into the popular music arena long before Nigel Kennedy ever picked up a bow. Jazzy electric violin with moody vocals from Sonia Kristina - an original and one for everyone's collection. This is a one-off and has no equal.

In the early 1970's a friend of my brother's lent him this record and I could not play it enough.
Progressive folk/rock like I/d never heard before and on a striking picture disc too.
The mixture of electric violins with rock music is simply out of his world.
This remains in my 10 top recordings of all time, at least until I change my mind and recalling it was released in 1970, way before its time including bands like ELO.
Try this album and I'll be very suprised if you don't find it gets your attention and keeps it from beginning to end.

I was a huge fan of Curved Air in the 70's, saw them loads and bought the vinyl. so the oppertunity to own it on CD was a good one. However, please be aware that this is NOT a remastered edition but one that appears to have been taken straight off the vinyl, and not very well. The sound quality is appalling. You have been warned.

I bought this on vinyl when it came out in 1970 and ever since have had a soft spot for Curved Air, so was very pleased to be able to get it on CD. My copy is from Warner Bros. and has the original 10 tracks, including Vivaldi with Cannons and comes with a lyrics booklet. Do check which version you are buying as some appear to leave out this last track. Personally, I am very happy with the sound quality; Darryl Way's violin rasps away and can go right through you at times; Sonja Kristina's voice is very strong and as seductive as when I first heard it as an impressionable 16 year old lad. It Happened Today and Vivaldi particularly stand out but all the tracks are solid with no fillers at all. It is a CD to be played loud. Very prog. Excellent.

Did you have the original on vinyl - with the coloured disc? My boyfriend at the time did - Oh how I coveted it. Ok - so that gives my age away - Memories of being 15 or so. Sonja Kristina still rocks. An early introduction to how pop and calssical could misx - Always did love their Vivaldi. It was a classic of it's time and still sounds good today.
Magical
