Product description

Product Description

An excellent double CD release from Repertoire that showcases the best of Curved Air, the ground breaking British progressive rock band. Starring the talented and beautiful singer/songwriter Sonja Kristina and electric violinist Darryl Way, the band was famed for its blend of poignant, evocative lyrics and instrumental pyrotechnics. Here are some 28 tracks spanning 40 years of music making with such career highlights as hit single 'Back Street Luv' and fan favourites 'Purple Speed Queen', 'Elfin Boy' and 'Love Child'. The comprehensive sleeve notes include a new interview with Sonja Kristina discussing the history of the group and the background and inspiration behind the creation of the songs.

About the Artist

Curved Air caused a sensation when they formed in the UK 1970. Founder members Darryl Way (electric violin and vocals), Sonja Kristina (vocals), Francis Monkman (keyboards), Pilkington-Miksa (drums) and Ian Erye (bass) were signed to Warner Brothers and their debut Air Conditioning (1970) was promoted as the first ever picture disc album. In 1971 they scored a Top 5 hit single with 'Back Street Luv' and their Second Album (1971) successfully fused electronic rock and classical music. The group underwent several personnel changes during the Seventies. Later members included violinist Eddie Jobson (Roxy Music, Frank Zappa), guitarist Kirby Gregory (Stretch) and drummer Stewart Copeland (The Police). Sonja Kristina has enjoyed successful solo careers both as an actress and singer and recorded albums with her ambient group Mask as well as touring with her Acid Folk Band. Curved Air has undergone a revival in recent years and is currently touring the UK with a line up that features Sonja Kristina with special guest Paul Sax on violin, original drummer Florian Pilkington-Miksa, guitarist Kit Morgan and Chris Harris (bass) with Robert Norton (keyboards). The group are billed to appear at the Glastonbury Festival on Thursday June 24th where Sonja's Acid Folk Band is also performing on June 26th. Full details of Curved Air shows can be found on their official website: http://www.curvedair.com .
