    the Tapestry of Delights:
    This band were first called The Stormeville Shakers. Their rare progressive album is now of minor interest to collectors. Mel Collins was later in King Crimson and Kokomo. Philip Goodhand-Tait had earlier recorded three 45s for Parlophone and after his spell with Circus he went on to record several solo albums. Chris Burrows had earlier played with Ray Anton and The Proform, and later had some involvement with Spirit Of John Morgan and Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come.
    Do You Dream? is a delightful piece of psychedelic pop and their first 45 was produced by Mike D'Abo.Chris Burrows later became a Buddhist monk, releasing four CDs of Buddhist percussion/chanting for the New Beginnings label.

    Scented Gardens of Mind:
    This large theatrical troupe played musical theatre, like a cross between Principal Edwards Magic Theatre and "Radio Gnome"-period Gong, but of course all in French! Aurora (1971) is a top rarity these days, and was released on the legendary Futura label. The two later albums are somewhat easier to find but in a similar style.

    Caravan ~ 1994 ~ Cool Water
    genre: canterbury
    country: uk
    quality: lossless (wv, cue, log, covers)
    time: 52'08" size: 2993 mb
    misc.: 1999, recorded '77
    In 1977, Caravan entered the studio to finish their tenth LP. The music recorded during these sessions was shelved for almost two decades before Pony Records released the newly mastered tunes in 1994. The collection, entitled Cool Water, has a distinctly raw sound that suggests much of the material was still in development when the album was scrapped. Without the benefit of a complete production treatment, the songs are reduced to their fundamental elements, adding to Cool Water's pop overtones. Gone are the 20-minute epic noodle-fests and indulgent solos. Echoes of Brian Wilson and John Lennon can be heard in guitarist/vocalist Pye Hastings' work during highlights like "Just the Way You Are," "Poor Molly," and other straight pop numbers. The only real miscalculations on Cool Water are the fluffy rock tracks, especially "Tuesday Is Rock 'N' Roll Night." Despite these missteps, this lost treasure is sure to delight fans of the Canterbury Scene. Listeners who can do without the genre's most excessive musical elements will be especially pleased.

    Juri Camisasca ~ 1974 ~ La Finestra Dentro
    genre: psych
    country: italy
    quality: lossless (wv, cue, log, scans)
    time: 36'23" size: 192 mb
    Roberto "Juri" Camisasca, from near Milan, despite a very limited discography can be considered a cult figure among the progressive music followers.
    His La finestra dentro, issued in 1974 by Bla Bla, is one of the best albums on that label, and strongly influenced by his collaboration with Franco Battiato, who signed Juri to the label and produced the LP, also playing the VCS3 synth on it.

    Though not musically as complex as Battiato's early works, La finestra dentro can be compared with Alan Sorrenti's first album in the use of voice as an instrument, with sparse musical accompaniment on some tracks. The overall result is much more intense than Sorrenti's Aria, with no weak parts, and a very regarding listen. 
    Many of Battiato's backing musicians (Gianfranco D'Adda, Gianni Mocchetti, Pino Massara, Lino "Capra" Vaccina) are featured on the 7-tracks album, that strongly deserves a CD reissue.

    After two singles in 1975, both featuring an album track and an unreleased one, Camisasca was briefly involved in Telaio Magnetico, sort of avantgarde supergroup that also featured among others Franco Battiato, Mino Di Martino from I Giganti and his wife Terra Di Benedetto (both later in Albergo Intergalattico Spaziale).
    This group only made a tour in the summer of that year, before disbanding.

    Camisasca then entered a Benedictine convent, where he stayed for 11 years, until the late 80's when he returned to the music biz with a new album called Te Deum, based on reworkings of Gregorian chants. Later works have been Il carmelo di Echt in 1991 and Arcano enigma in 1999, and he's been very active as composer working with such artists like PFMBattiato, Alice and Giuni Russo.
