Nektar - Recycled (1975)

The sixth album from this British band.

Nektar was a quartet on this album with a lineup of keyboards, guitars, bass, drums, percussion and vocals.
The band had help from a Moog player and a choir.

Nektar had by now established themselves as an exciting and unpredictable band.

This album is another turn in the road of their career and creative output.

Take a lot of Yes, mix it up with Eloy and then with Genesis. This is where you find this album and Nektar.

The music is pretty big but still retains what I believe is the Nektar's core and DNA profile.

A lot of the music is lush with some strong South-American feel to it. Not as in South American folk rock or prog. Well, some prog. But Nektar is unmistaken British.

The songs on this almost forty minutes long album very good good idea. It lack this dot over the i. But that is a small gripe I got with this album.

This is a great album and well worth checking out. And finally, I have "got" this band.
