Rare Bird - As Your Mind Flies As Your Mind Flies
Pop Used - LP ABCS 716 ABC
Rare 1970 Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Appears Unplayed. "The Quartet's 1970 Debut Eponymous Album Launched The Label, While "Sympathy" Gave It Its First Hit. As Your Mind Flies By Soared Into The Shops Later That Year, Sadly The Original Lineup's Swan Song. Boasting The Rhythm Section Of Lead Singer/Bassist Steve Gould And Drummer Mark Ashton, And Keyboardists Dave Kaffinetti And Graham Field On Electric Piano And Organ, The Group Was Far Removed From The Showboating Likes Of Yes And ELP. Obviously, However, The Group Were Keyboard Driven, And Boasting A Surprising Diversity Of Sound And Style. The Gentle, Dreamy "Down On The Floor," For Instance, Is Offered Up In Baroque Fashion, With The Keyboards Imitating Harpsichords. In Contrast, The Triumphant "Hammerhead" Was A Heavy Hitting Hard Rocker, Interlaced With Airy Flute Passages And What Sounds Like, But Isn't, Wah-Wah And Soaring Guitar Solos. The Opening "What You Want To Know" Even Boasts A Riff Ripped Straight From "Sympathy From The Devil," Another Power-Packed Bluesy Number With A Difference. But It Was The Epic, Side-Length "Flight" That Really Sent Rare Bird Soaring. Divided Into Four Sections, The Piece Takes To The Sky On A Series Of Stunning Arpeggios, Quickens, Then Darkens. Organs Burst Out Of The Shadows, A Church Choir Sails In, A Phenomenal Dual Takes Place Between The Surf Guitar-Ing Electric Piano And The Psych-Mad Organ, Before The Bird Flitters Into Experimental Avant-Garde Territory, Then Brings It All Home With A Flourish Of Vocals And Organ.” – Jo-Ann Greene, All Music Guide.... more details

Prog Used - LP CPLP 4514 Probe
Rare 1969 Gatefold Original. Jacket Is Near Mint. LP Appears Unplayed. Small Cut Out Hole. Different Cover Art Than The UK Charisma Release. “This Debut Featured An Organist And An Electric Pianist, But No Guitarist, Resulting In A Moody Hammond-Heavy Album From A Band That Would Later Become More Progressive And Varied In Its Sound. "Beautiful Scarlet" Shifts Easily From Histrionic Soul To Offhanded Slow-Four Interludes, And The Instrumental "Iceberg" Shows Off The Organist Graham Field And The Rest Of Band's Chops Well. The Whispered Vocals And Weird Background Noises Of "God Of War" Achieves The Kind Of Creepy Gloom Appropriate To An Era Of Carpet Bombing And Napalm. Indeed, The Production And Instrumentation Of This Album Makes It Very Much Of A Period Piece, Though Certainly Not In Any Derogatory Sense.” Paul Collins, All Music Guide.... more details
