An undiscovered diamond.......
on 26 February 2002
This band were never truly recognised for their amazing talent and originality. Although they epitomised 'progressive music' in the 70', they never managed to break through to the mass acceptance that they deserved.
Three Friends is one of their less acclaimed albums but, for me , in the title track, it has the best song that they ever produced. Coming at the end of a sequence of songs about the different paths followed by three schoolkids, it has a hymn like quality that can bring you to tears.
There are other, equally worthy records by this great band but it will always be 'Three Friends' that I will come back to...maybe because it reminds me to think about my own schooldays and the friends who disappeared into the past.
