White Wing - White Wing (1975)
The one and only album from this US band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals.
The band was from South Dakota and their album was recorded in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The record label was ASI. A single was lifted from this album (Hansa) which did rather well and became a minor hit.
The album was marketed as USA's answer to The Moody Blues. Which was missing the target by some miles. Forget The Moody Blues.
But remember the three first Styx albums instead. This is where we find this album..... more or less. The music here is not too hard. There are even some ballads here which is a bit soppy and emotional.
The rest of the album is a middle of the road mix of rock and progressive rock. This album is not really make any progressive rock fans day. Mostly because the quality is not that good. The band split up just after the release of this album as it sold pretty poorly. There is a good reason for that. The lack of quality.
This is a decent album and those interested may find it on Youtube for a listen or two. I am not that impressed.
