Triode - On N'a Pas Fini D'avoir Tout Vu (1971)
The one and only album from this French band.
The band was a quartet with a lineup of flute, guitar, bass and drums.
Next to nothing is known about this band and album. An album released on an obscure record label and later re-released on CD through Mellow Records. A fully deserved re-release !
It is not easy to label this album. The music is very eclectic and dense. But.....
...Take Focus and Jan Akkerman's guitars. Take Focus again and Jethro Tull's flutes. Put that into a jazz, folk and psych rock landscape. The result may be this album.
The forty-three minutes is an eclectic experience, indeed.
The music has a lot of quirky melodies and lots of flutes. Some very good flutes too. The jazz is also everywhere.
It is not an easy listening, this album and I have been scratching my head a lot over this album.
The quality is not bad at all. This is indeed a good album and a hidden gem from the 1970s which deserve a lot more attention.
Check out this album if this sounds like being down your alley..... Eclectic prog, that is.
