FRUUPP The Prince Of Heaven's Eyes Esoteric (2009)


Elves beckon here, no mistake. A first-time reissue of the catalogue of a symphonic Classics-meet-Celts act from Northern Ireland that put the P in progressive reaches a creative high on 1974's The Prince of Heaven's Eyes.

Based on a short story about Mud Flanigan's search for the end of the rainbow by band manager and booklet writer Paul Charles, it's a consistently entertaining romp.

Lead guitar and keyboards led with strings in abundance, it's a concept album and being such demands narrative that in turn enables the work overall to retain the cohesion perhaps missing from the rest of the band's catalogue, also out on now Esoteric.

'Annie Austere', 'Prince of Heaven' and 'The Perfect Wish' stand out and Esoteric have re-produced the little book that came with the original LP.

A commendable package, with bonus tracks - Prince is their crowning glory.
