    Scented Gardens Of The Mind:
    Realising the commercial potential of Focus, Poydor signed a couple of other 'progressive' groups, including Alquin. They were always in the second league, but many of those bands also deserve some attention. Alquin's versatile style ranged from pop-rock to classical derivatives and from brass jazz to folk, often within the same tracks. A rich array of instruments were used, most notably violin, organ, flute and sax. Their treatments of themes were related to the British progressive sound of the instrumental Caravan and Traffic (circa John Barleycorn). What Alquin lacked was musical depth and a sense of urgency. Their albums are fair, sometimes even good, but never timeless. Check out Marks and Mountain Queen if tempted.
