Nektar - Down To Earth Down To Earth
Pop New - LP PPSD 99005 Passport
Sealed 1975 Gatefold Original. “Depending On Who You Ask, This Is Either Nektar's Greatest Or Worst Album. As Albrighton Explained Later, It Was The Band's Attempt To Re-Invent Itself As Someone Else — Like The Magical Mystery Tour. Old Fans Were Appalled; But As The First Album To Get Much Airplay In The U.S., It Brought In New Fans Who Found It By Far Their Most Accessible Work. Its Progressive And Funk Elements Are Set Around A Demented Circus Theme, With The Songs Introduced By A Loony Teutonic Ringmaster. "That's Life," Powered By Chattering Drums And A Positively Orgasmic Rickenbacker Bass Sound, Is A Standout Of Progressive Rock Showmanship. Delicate Pieces Like "Little Boy" And "Early Morning Clown" — Where Albrighton Uses Rotating Leslie Speakers To Great Effect — Alternate With Pub Rockers Like "Fidgety Queen" And The Lumbering Funk Of "Nelly The Elephant." For New Fans, This Album Is The Place To Start; And If They're Willing To Take It On Its Own Terms, Old Fans Might Find A Place In Their Heart For It Too. “ Paul Collins, AMG.... more details
 
Nektar - A Tab In The Ocean A Tab In The Ocean
Prog New - LP PPSD 98017 Passport
Sealed 1976 US Issue. CC. “A Tab In The Ocean Mirrors Nektar's First Album, But Only To A Certain Degree. While Their Sound Still Basks In Lengthy Keyboard Passages And Fantastic Lyrics, The Psychedelia Is Traded In For A More Directional And Established Approach, With Longer Tracks And A Tighter Progressive Structure. There's An Obvious Cohesiveness Between The Guitar And Keyboard Tandem, With An Attempt At Shaping A Concept Through The Album's Five Tracks. Both The Title Track And The 19 Minutes Of "King Of Twilight" Are Tab In The Ocean's Best Examples Of Nektar's Maturing Process, With Sleek Instrumental Runs That Taper Off Into The Lyrics As Opposed To A More Improvised Feel That Surrounded Their Last Album. A Stronger Influence Can Be Felt On Roye Albrighton's Guitar Playing, Which Is More Structural, And Derek Moore's Basslines Are Sturdier And More Expressive. Although It's Hard To Ignore The Slight Rock Feel Of The Album In Parts, The Five Songs As A Whole Harbor The Band's Surreal Mien Of Progressive Rock. Even The Lyrics Sound As If More Concern Has Been Given To Them, Coming Off As An Equal Part Of Nektar's Music Without Drifting Away Into Obscurity. Best Of All, A Tab In The Ocean Completes The Task Of Holding The Interest Of The Fans That Enjoyed Their Debut Album.” – Mike Degagne, All Music Guide... more details

Nektar - Man In The Moon Man In The Moon
Pop Used - LP 202 215-320 Ariola
1980 German Original. Appears Unplayed. “The 1980s Are Well Known In Rock Music Circles As The Era Of Hair Metal, That Offshoot Of The Thunderous Variant Of Hard Rock That Always Seemed More Concerned With Image Than Substance. Interestingly Enough, This Release From The Very Beginning Of That Era Features An Opening Cut That Feels Much Of The Influence Of That Metallic Genre. Do Not Expect This Disc To Come Across As Another Remember The Future Or Tab In The Ocean. Indeed, Don't Even Expect To Hear Magic Is A Child Here. The Truth Of The Music Presented On The CD Is That It Is A Far More Pop-Oriented Sound Than Nektar Ever Presented Before. The Cuts Are Rather Short And Catchy. The Thing Is, As Un-Progressive Rock As The Somewhat Legendary Prog Group Made With This One, There Is Still Some Strong Material Presented. The One Factor That Truly Steals The Show And Makes This Worthwhile Is The Powerful Vocal Performance Of Roye Albrighton. It Is A True Tribute To His Voice That This Disc Works As Well As It Does, In Much The Same Way That Judas Priest's Turbo Is A Tribute To The Power Of Rob Halford.” Gary Hill, All Music Guide.... more details
