    Tapestry Of Delights:
    This progressive blues/rock album involved some former members of Skip Bifferty and is now a minor collectable. They formed the band in 1970 when Graham Bell joined Every Which Way but never really made a living on their own and later joined Graham Bell in Bell and Arc.

    Three parts Scottish and one part Australian their band now clearly stands up as a progressive rock outfit, but manages to avoid most of its pitfalls and the results are generally rather impressive. Most importantly they succeed in restraining themselves, without losing any emotional impact. They have the ability to write memorable tunes and arrange them well. The vocals are a strong point, often oddly harmonized and never overstated. Heavier tracks alternate with more poetic ones, although this at times acts to the detriment of the album's coherence. All in all a very pleasant album to listen to, but not essential to own. 

    (Marcel Koopman/VJ).

    Anyone’s Daughter ~ 1979 ~ Adonis

    The Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
    Formed in 1972 by Uwe Karpa (guitar) and Matthias Ulmer (organ) in Stuttgart, together with Sascha Pavlovic (drums) who at the time were all 14 or 15 years old. They played covers mostly at the start, with sets that included Deep Purple and Cream numbers, along with a growing repertoire of self-penned numbers. Changes in style happened when new drummer Hansi Derer joined, and more so when Harald Bareth (bass) took over as lead vocalist.

    By the time they gained a record contract, Anyone's Daughter had advanced considerably, as one of the many progressive rock bands to appear in the late-1970's inspired by the likes of Genesis, Gentle Giant, Jane, et al. Anyone's Daughter were far better than most, and they quickly became a favourite amongst "prog" fans.

    Their early albums featured English vocals, ADONIS being a very accomplished debut of refined progressive rock, with strong symphonic elements, jazzy touches and a notable debt to Eloy. Obviously intent on trying to get international fame their second LP, tried for an even more direct style, but paled next to ADONIS. A radical change from hereon, especially on their third album PIKTOR'S VERWANDLUNGEN, a conceptual opus (live in concert) featuring mainly spoken German texts along with vast instrumentals in the realms of Novalis and Grobschnitt, and only a couple of actual "songs", it is arguably their most successful, and certainly their most experimental. IN BLAU returned to a more accessible style, almost like mid-1970's Genesis sung in German. A good album, but from hereon the Anyone's Daughter sound paled significantly, with shorter compositions on an ever more melodic song based level. The LIVE double was thus very disappointing.
