Echolyn, Return to Forever & Van der Graaf Generator


Echolyn - New Jersey 2002
'Jersey Tomato' (mp3/160kbps)

This is an excellent soundboard which was
officially released but is now out of print.
Don't be put off by the low bit rate,
the sound quality is very good.
Thanks to guitarist/singer Brett Kull for
giving me permission to post it here.
To my ears it's a mix of Canterbury/neo-prog.
As good as Caravan or Spock's beard at their best.
I told Brett being on soundaboard would be
good promotion for the band. So c'mon guys,
don't let me down, grab it now!
regards
Titus

Return to Forever
Oslo 1976 (FLAC)

The jazz-fusion (ugh!) supergroup
who have musical muscle to spare
captured here playing material from
the 'Romantic Warrior' album.
A few pops & clicks but otherwise
a fine recording.

I have adored VDGG since I was 12 years old.
This is taken from a German TV broadcast.
I have it on DVD and it is beautifully filmed.

Here's an idea. Have you ever been in a band? Do you have any recordings you would be willing to share?

Thanks for Echolyn and others. They're really a great and relatively unknown band.
