CatNo: HST311CD

A compilation of early Third Ear Band work including a John Peel concert session.

'The first three pieces by the pre-Ear band The National Balkan Ensemble have never sounded so good, these Alchemy-era sounding pieces last little over 16 minutes but are probably what make this CD for me. There are two further tracks recorded at Abbey Road in 1968 Raga in D (definitely a tape sourced recording) and 1971 Raga No 1 also sounding good enough to have come from an original tape source.
The final three tracks appear to be 'off air' recordings of a BBC in concert session in January 1971 replete with John Peel introductions.' - Fletch-a-Sketch, Amazon UK
