Emergency - Entrance (1972)
The second album from this multi-national band.
The band was a sextet with a lineup of saxophone, flute, keyboards, mellotron, guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
Their debut album was a good fusion and blues album. The band therefore continued their musical path with this album.
The vocals is English/US bluesy vocals and gives the band a lot of credibility and authenticity..... as an US band. Which they are not.
The sound is honest enough.
The music is a mix of fusion, blues and soul. More soul and blues than fusion.
The band packs a lot of details and some good music into this forty-five minutes long album. There is a lot of guitars and saxophones here in addition to the vocals.
Unfortunate, this album is a slight drop in quality from their debut album. Not everything or even half of this album is good. The rest is fairly decent.
This is still an album well worth checking out.
