ROOM Pre-Flight Esoteric (2008)


Room's 1970 debut on Deram as a showcase of its musical eclecticsm, spanning rock, blues, prog, jazz and even classical, proved too rich a mixture for the buying public, sealing the fate of of this obscure British progressive rock act.

Despite the competency of playing, Jane Kavern's strident lead vocal, and some imaginative brass and string arrangements, the album defies genre, its musical furniture moved restlessly about the Room.

Aptly-named, 'Pre-Flight' is a series of checks before a take-off that was never to be. With few peers, it should be investigated for its audacity and occasional sparks of innovation and of course is another must-have for collectors of lost Brit prog.
