Review
Remember SKY?! Those five brilliant musicians, who took it upon themselves to create a bridge between classical music and today´s music (today being 1979) thus creating a whole new genre and simultaniously sneaking classical music into the realm of rock/pop/folk music! Mediating classical music without the "Stiff upperlip" to us all!!

There have been floating many a musical river under the bridge since then! Now the brilliant Esoteric Recordings have seen fit to re-release / re-master their whole (well until now the first four releases) catalogue!

As soon as I put this, their first outing (chronological) on my cd player, I was very pleased as I was the first time way back then and pleasantly surprised !!

It still holds up to this day!! With the wonderful, beautiful and sometimes enchanting versions of classical pieces! A fine blend of acoustic and electric ridden music delivered with supreme musicanship and a top notch production!! The more electric tracks reminds this reviewer of Alan Parsons Project and or Gordon Giltrap (mid period) and thats big in my book!!

As always with Esoteric, there are excellent sound, an illustrated booklet de luxe with new essay and an interview with Tristan Fry! Not only that, would you believe bonus tracks?!

Plus: A dvd (region free) with Sky´s 1979 BBC televison appearances, live and studio!
Incl. interviews with John Williams, Herbie Flower & Tristan Fry.

It is a wonderful package, really a must own! I thank Esoteric for giving me (and you) the opportunity to rediscover this brillliant band and their particular brand of classical/folk/prog.

Oh- the bonus tracks on cd includes: an A-side single version and a previously unreleased live version of: "Where Opposites Meet (part 1-5) !!

Keywords: Virtousity - Perfection - Beauty !!

"Heaven...im in heaven" !!
