Prao (1983) feat. Denis Barbier, Mino Cinelu, François Couturier, Patrice Cinelu, François Jeanneau, and Jean-Jacques Cinelu








Following swiftly on the heels of the marvelous LBC Trio opus, more Denis Barbier in an album that recalls the French band Confluence.  Notice the titles are very zeuhl-like, oddly enough though they describe various types of boats, as you can see if you quickly check wikipedia and other online dictionaries: Prao, Sampan, Ketch, and Yawl.  It's crazy what we can accomplish now without even getting out of our chairs to haul out the dictionary, which up until a decade ago was still necessary in these cases, isn't it?  Our coronary arteries must really be thanking us, that we never even have to stand up in the course of a day's writing or work...

Coming up later this week I will return to the progressive rock we love so deeply, with some outrageously outstanding electronic progressive material (and I don't even have a taste for that style!) but I assure you, this is well worth hearing.  As well, one of the rarest and most little-known albums related to a band we all know well and love, Connivence from Canada.  Very undeserving of its utter anonymity and relegation to oblivion.  I will also mention another fantastic find from a friend that is clearly a certified and proven progressive fusion masterpiece, and no yet one knows about it-- and I mean no one...
So stay tuned to our program!
