Amazing Blondel - Mulgrave Street (1974)
The sixth album from this British band.
The band was reduced to the duo of Terence Wincott and Edward Baird. Together they provided guitars, piano, bass, flute and vocals.
Numerous guest musicians provided Moog, organ, piano, electric guitars, bass, drums, violin and vocals.
The band had largely abandoned their flirtations with progressive rock and retreated to a safe area.
That means a mix of folk and rock.
The music is vocals dominated and very much in the folk rock landscape.
There is not much interesting instrumental excitement on this album. The songs are still decent enough.
There is not many interesting details here, though. Nothing to really take on board and to remember this album for.
It is a straight folk rock album and that is that.
