Amazing Blondel - Evensong (1970)
The second album from this British band.
Amazing Blondel was a trio with a lineup of lute, harpsichord, guitars, bass, cittern, flute, crumhorn, pipe organ, tabor pipe, harmonium and vocals.
Amazing Blondel was one of those bands from the folk music scene who also made a detour into progressive rock on one or more albums.
I am not sure where this band touched the progressive rock scene.
That is most certainly not on this album. An album with pure folk music. Uncomplicated melody and vocals based folk music.
The instruments are not doing much of themselves besides of supporting the vocals. Some good vocals, but still vocals.
The songs are decent enough, but they never really shines. There is no good songs here. There are some good details, but that is all.
