Flash - Psychosync 1997

Darn good sound quality archive compilation CD release of the short lived British progressive art rock band's brief existence, 1972-74. 'Psychosync' is a collection of six live performances from American radio and TV shows. For those of you that might have not heard of Flash, they were the brainchild of former Yes guitarist Peter Banks. Tunes here that I was most impressed with were "Room With A View", the fifteen-minute epic "Dreams Of Heaven" and the title track "Psychosync". Simply just SO '70's-ish. Might appeal to fans of Alan Parsons, early Yes, Genesis and possibly Marillion. Recommended.
.../... "Room With A View" is simply the original title of "There No More" from In the Can....
