A musical delight,
This review is from: McDonald & Giles (Audio CD)
I waited and waited for this album to be released in 1970 after the success of In The Court of the Crimson King. Ian McDonald appeared to be the mastermind behind the early King Crimson and when he left I eagerly followed his career. To team up with Mike Giles was perfect and it meant these new tracks still had that Crimson style without the harshness of Robert Fripp's influence. The lyrics are by the marvellous Pete Sinfield giving an album centered around the wonderful 'Birdman'. All the selections are great and although I'm now 50 it still brings back memories of DJ Jeff Dexter playing tracks from it at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970. A truly great album that only a few of us have ever been aware of.

I was there mate!!I agree; an absolutely cracking album, better in my opinion than much of what was to follow from Crimson. I'm the same age as you as well!
