    Tapestry of Delights:

    This folk singer was discovered by Andrew Loog Oldham in the mid-sixties. In 1965 he gave her a Jagger/Richard composition to record, Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind, but neither this, or the follow-up - both recorded under the name Vashti - made any impact.

    She made further recordings, but, as with many major labels at the time most of them were shelved. One of her own compositions I'd Like To Walk Around In Your Mind, recorded with Mike Hurst for Andrew Oldham in '67 did subsequently resurface on Circus Days, Vol. 1 and was later covered in 1996 by Lush, as a 'B' side to their 500 single.

    Vashti's album was recorded in 1969 and produced by Joe Boyd. Something of a period piece, it told the story of a two year horse-drawn journey from London to the Hebrides, which Vashti made with the initial intention of meeting Donovan off the Isle of Skye... a journey which nowadays might seem absurd, but one can't help but admire the sheer audacity of the venture - living on the road with no money except what she earn't from painting farms, digging gardens and in the bad times getting an emergency fiver from Joe Boyd, all the time writing and singing songs in defiance of it all.

    She was assisted on the album by some top folk figures - Simon Nicol, David Swarbrick and Robin Williamson, and it is now ultra-rare and very sought-after...

    genre: prog
    country: italy

    misc.: 1994


    A band from Florence, Campo di Marte were another of those band that despite a good recording deal with a major company (that incidentally was the only effort by United Artists to produce an italian prog group), only released an album and disappeared. 
    The group was formed in 1971 by guitarist Enrico Rosa and drummer/flutist Mauro Sarti, that had previously played with minor groups like Senso Unico and La Verde Stagione, along with american-born bass player Richard Ursillo (named Paul Richard in the LP cover notes as it "sounded less italian"). 
    Keyboardist Alfredo "Carlo" Barducci was a trained french horn player, and the large number of instruments played gave the new group the chance to mix classical inspired rock music with various influences obtaining a rich and varied sound. 
    A fifth member was added with drummer Carlo Felice Marcovecchio, that had previously played with another very popular group from Florence, I Califfi, and the presence of a second drummer left Sarti the freedom to play the flute in many tracks.

    The band had a good live activity, playing under different names, and the final one, Campo di Marte (named after a quarter of Florence), was found during the LP recordings.

    The album lyrics referred to the foolishness of wars, and in contrast the cover contained a drawing of ancient Turkish mercenaries injuring themselves to demonstrate their strength and courage. The same design was contained in the band's posters.

    Campo di Marte is a very good album, not particularly original but very well composed, sung and played, with some orchestrated parts that sometime remind the later work of Maxophone (with large use of flute and french horn). Good guitar and keyboard playing throughout the LP make this an essential album in any italian prog collection. The seven tracks are sequentially named (starting with Primo tempo up to Settimo tempo) as movements of a symphonic composition.
    By the way an extra track recorded during the LP sessions, entitled Si può riuscire and planned to be released as a single, has never seen the light of day.

    Unfortunately a long time passed between the album composition and its recording and release, and the musicians had completely lost their interest in the band when it came out, aided by the total lack of promotion by the record company, that had also forced the band to change the songs lyrics.

    Guitarist Enrico Rosa (that was also the whole first album composer) then recorded a second Campo di Marte album that was rather a solo album and totally different from the debut LP, and this was never released by United Artists, seeing this as an uncommercial choice. He moved to Denmark in 1974 and he's still a professional musicians there, having had a long activity both as session guitarist and as solo musicians in the jazz and classical music fields.
    Bass player Paul Richard reappeared in Sensations' Fix with his real surname Ursillo, and has played with that band in all of their albums. Even drummer Marcovecchio has collaborated with Sensations' Fix from time to time.
    Drummer Mauro Sarti later played with Bella Band, with an album on Cramps in 1978. 

    2003 has come, and the group has been reformed by the original members Enrico Rosa and Mauro Sarti, along with Eva Rosa (recorder), Matin Alexandr Sass (keyboards) and Maurilio Rossi (bass), for some concerts in Tuscany and for the recording of the live CD Concerto zero. The double set includes a 1972 concert recording, originally used on a promo-only LP made by the band, and the whole 2003 reunion set. A GREAT return!!!

    Tapestry Of Delights:
    Peter Bardens first worked at The Marquee with Hamilton King's Blues Messengers and The Peter Bardens Trio. He also managed The Cheynes at the time, and in July 1963 joined them too. In April '65 he left The Cheynes for Them, and formed Peter B's (Looners) in February 1966. The following May, after Rod Stewart and Beryl Marsden joined, they became Shotgun Express.
    In 1969 he formed Village, who also backed him on his first solo album The Answer. The second, featured "Peter Bardens' On". Both are dope-infested in sound and are a bit primitive in production. Long instrumental improvisation dominated both albums, but his keyboard playing was always impressive. Peter Green is credited as guitarist on Vintage 69, though it doesn't say on which tracks.
    In 1972 Bardens formed Camel, which at least matched the success of Them. Leaving Camel in 1978 Bardens later recorded several albums which were at the forefront of the 'new age' music genre of the late eighties. He also has played on numerous sessions and was a member of studio group Keats.
    Alan Marshall, who played on the early Pete Bardens albums, later played for Zzebra. ~ (Vernon Joynson/Jim McMaster)

    Tapestry Of Delights:
    When Pete Brown was kicked out of the band, Chris Spedding took over the vocal role for this now very rare album. Twisted Track is a standout cut, which also got an airing on Harvest's Picnic sampler. Other highlights include Turned On To The Earls Court Scene and there's also some good interplay between the band, particularly Spedding and Khan, throughout.
    After this album, Spedding concentrated on session work and also pursued a solo career. The remaining members formed The People Band, cutting one album on Transatlantic.

    Tapestry Of Delights:
    This was the first album released on Decca's progressive Nova label. Ashkan are not able to create a sound of their own. The menu mainly offers ill-digested blues and on one track a shameless Traffic rip-off (Slightly Country). The sound is heavy and unpolished, but without conveying any inner need or aim. For completists only.
