Raw Material - Raw Material (1970 uk, excellent prog psych rock, 2003 remaster and vortex extra tracks issue)



The A-side of their eponymous debut album, from the London based quintet, includes three strong, long tracks: "Time And Illusion", which had a long instrumental break and vibraphone on leading role; "I'd Be Delighted", which featured strong vocals, good flute and sax work and "Fighting Cock", which builds in strength after a mellow beginning. The finale, "Destruction", is a poetry recitation with unidentified orchestral backing.
