Jade Warrior - Last Autumn's Dream (1972)
The third album from this British band.
The band was a trio with a lineup of guitars, tablas, percussion, bass, flutes, piano, congas and vocals.
Two guest musicians helped out on drums and guitars.
This is, from what I understand, their final album before they turned into a more world music band.
The music here is a mix of weirdo British humour, space rock, eclectic prog, avant-garde and some more melodic psych and progressive rock.
The music sounds very eclectic on this album and it has some subtle world music influences. There is also some raga-rock and krautrock influences here.
Jade Warrior was a band who did it their way and that is obvious on this album. An album who also includes some very good guitars and flute solos. The vocals is good too.
Some of the music is also pretty funky and jazzy.
There is a lot of variations and details on this album. It is an unusual album by all means.
It is still a good album which has a lot to offer the listener. Check it out.
