THE HARRY ROCHE CONSTELLATION Spiral/Sometimes El/Cherry Red (2007)

These two albums originally appeared in the early 70s, and largely dismissed at the time .To be honest, from the opening track of Spiral, itís easy to see why.

Yes there are some interesting tunes, melodies, but the approach makes it difficult to accept. Progressive MOR!! Funky, jazzy, proggy, rocky, with a large brass section, and some woodwind too.

Second track adds some organ more traditionally found in lift music.

'Thatís Living' does feature some neat guitar work, and for the first 30 seconds the brass works, but after that it becomes uptempo coffee table music with a Spanish leaning.

The opening bars of 'Pinball Wizard' are very reminiscent of the theme tune to 'The Professional', before a guitar comes in to play with the brass and hash an old classic.

Those that love this kind of music are in a very niche market.
