3.0 out of 5 stars Pu the D into Diversity..., 22 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Open Spaces (Audio CD)
One of a handful of non-folk acts deployed by Transatlantic Records to broaden its appeal, the Contemporary Music Unit (or less wieldy CMU) was precisely that. The brainchild of guitarist Ed Lee (author of an academic tome on music from medieval folk to contemporary progressive rock), it brought the differing musical influences of its six members to the table of this 1971 debut in a melding that put the D in diversity. Folk, reggae and wilfully experimentalist rock skate over a modern jazz blues surface a touch too erratically as to lend the album the focus it would benefit from on occasion, yet there was clearly something here and opener `Henry', Pentangle-like `Mystical Sounds', eastern-tinged `Japan' are attention-getters while the eerie title track is hypnotically timeless.
