Westfauster - In A King's Dream (1971)
The one and only album from this US band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of harpiscord, flutes, vibraphone, saxophone, guitars, piano, keyboards, bass, drums, percussions and vocals.
The band was from Cincinatti and released their album on Nasco in Nashville, Tennessee. Very little is known about this band. The LP has been re-released on CD at least three times so there must be a fanbase of this band and album somewhere.
The music on this forty minutes long album is a mix of symphonic progressive rock, heavy prog and psychedelic rock. The title track takes 1/4 of this album and clocks in at ten minutes. That is a pretty complex track with a mix of piano, saxophone and vocals. It is also the best track here by some distance.
The other seven tracks are pretty short and does not really offer much besides of some pop and psychedelic music.
The end result is a decent album which may have something to offer to those who likes this kind of music. I rate the title track and that is it.
