Morse Code Transmission - Morse Code Transmission (1971)
The debut album from this Canadian band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of cajun fiddle, cello, bass, drums, keyboards, guitars and English vocals.
The band released two albums under the Morse Code Transmission name before they shortened their name to Morse Code and released further five albums under that name. The band has just reformed again, I have heard.
Their albums is not easy to get hold off and I hope those will be a lot more accessable in the near future. I got this album and a Morse Code album of them.
This album is a psych prog album with some old style beat and rock thrown into the mix too. There are also some hints of symphonic prog here.
The music sounds dated anno 2018. The cajun fiddle sounds very odd, even on this album. There are some commercial songs here too. Oh Lord is one of them. There is also a couple of sugar-sweet ballads here too.
I cannot really say I am impressed by this half an hour long album. It is decent enough, but nothing more than that.
