Collage - Nine Songs Of John Lennon (1993)
The second album from this Polish band.
The band was a quintet on this album with a lineup of bass, drums, keyboards, guitars, percussion and vocals.
Three years after the release of the very good Basnie album, the band returns again...... with an album of John Lennon classics.
Why John Lennon ?
In The Beatles, John Lennon was the no-nonsense rocker, George Harrison was pretty progressive and Sir Paul McCartney was the proghead. So the choice of the Beatle baffles me.
Anyway, this album is here and need a listen or five.
The songs gets a neo-prog sound..... which makes this album even more baffling. The neo-prog sound manages to make the original songs far worse than the very good and great originals. These classics and semi-classics are getting murdered on this album.
This is an album well worth avoiding. I really love Collage.... but I cannot even like or accept this horrible album.
