Pete Brown & Piblokto! - Thousands On A Raft Thousands On A Raft
Prog Used - LP SHVL 782 Harvest
Rare And Beautiful 1970 UK Original Housed In A Laminated Jacket. A1/B1 Stampers First Edition. “This Album Was Remembered As Much For Its Cover As Anything Else -- A Picture Of A Model Titanic And A Model Concorde Sinking In A Puddle, As Rafts Of Toast Ferry Thousands Of Baked Beans To The Shore. Musically It Was Some Good Jazz-Rock, With The Emphasis Not Always On Brown's Vocals And Elliptical Lyrics, As Jim Mullen's "Highland Song" Offered An Inventive, Lengthy Instrumental As The Disc's Centerpiece. The Title Cut Has A Pink Floyd Edge, Surprising Given Brown's Predilection For Jazz And Blues, But It Works Well In The Context. Guitarist Mullen Is Co-Writer Throughout, While The Rhythm Section Of Rob Tait And Steve Glover Swing Rather Than Plod. "Station Song Platform Two" Employs Mellotron To Full Prog Rock Effect, While "Got A Letter From A Computer" Seems Eerily Ahead Of Its Time For The Early '70s. This Was The Last Gasp Of This Incarnation Of Piblokto!, But There's No Doubt They Went Out On A High Note.” Chris Nickson, All Music Guide.... more details
