APP never topped this album (by a long shot). The Deluxe Edition is the way to go so you can hear the original 1976 mix and the 1987 mix. I had never heard the original mix before getting the Deluxe Edition and I must say I prefer it.

Hell yeah! That album has such a cool vibe to it, like the works of Poe are being interpreted by robots

That is a great APP album, I have that cool fancy booklet LP version. Members of Pilot(Oh, Its magic) and Ambrosia are the backing band on it, as well.


The Raven is such a killer tune!!!

It always surprised me about some of the members of Pilot being on there but Ambrosia never did being that they started out as a Prog band.

From Wikipedia:

Negril is an instrumental album originally released in 1975 from a session produced, arranged and mostly composed by Eric Gale, and including some of Jamaica's best-known musicians. It bears the name of an impoverished Jamaican seaside village which, in 1975, was yet to become a popular tourist destination and had unsophisticated accommodations, but a splendid beach and natural beauty which inspired Gale to memorialize it. Negril was recorded at the Harry J Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. It was originally released in Jamaica by Micron Music Ltd. and in England by Klik Records (KLP9005). In 2003 it was issued as a CD by Roving Spirits (Japan). The CD is now out of print and, because it is not available for legal digital download, sellers demand high prices for used copies.

That looks interesting, I usually like Gale more as a sideman than a leader, but I'd be interested to hear that one.

It's good. It's not just a Marley album w/o vox there's actually some good Fusion elements but it never gets too bombastic. The last half is better I'd say but it's a good album to chill to.

Etron fou Leloublan - Batelages


A recent discovery of mine; some really interesting (read: weird as fuck) French Avant-prog from the late 70's. They're name roughly translates into Crazy Shit, The White Wolf. You can't get any more French than that.
