Condition Record/Sleeve: Mint-/Mint-

Extra Info: Fantastic Album !! Original Dutch 1st press LP on Polydor ...stone minty ... VERY RARE !!

~~ Alquin's 2nd album is one of the best Dutch prog albums of the 1970's !! A somewhat heavier approach then on their debut album, still the interplay between the musicians is superb, everyone a master of their instrument, and the playing is disciplined and without ego.
The album is divided between five tracks, and the themes are split between "The Dance/Convicts of the air " and "Mountain Queen".A nice instrumental called " Soft eyed woman" creates an interlude in the running order , and with a great blow at the end entitled "Mr Barnum Jr's Magnificent and Fabulous City " The album has a flow and plays like a concept album.

The instrumentation include flutes, saxes, keyboards, aswell as guitar, drums and bass and the musicianship is firstclass throughout. It would be unfair to single anyone out here , all the playing is great.This is a wonderful , lyrical album and it is very emotive and atmosperic. Highly recommended !!
