Quintessence were a spiritual minded, Indian traditional music inspired band, incl. chants

and Indian tradition music sequences blended with psychedelic & rock theme´s, often jam like music pieces with chanting, tabla and flute. But also beautiful tunes with ditto vocal harmonies as well as the occasional great lead guitar in front. Mind you, these were the times and day of fun tobacco, flowers and love and their lyrics reflects just that. I guess today they would be compared to Ozric´s (bar the Indian inspiration) as they were so much a collective society as they were a band. Some would even call them a hippie collective! This particular release from the always excellent Esoteric Recordings, holds the first three albums released on the great Island Recordings spanding 1969-1971.

As indicated members of this fine band hailed from: UK/ US/ Australia & Canada. I realise that our younger readers might find this " to boring" and or "old school" !! Yes I am somewhat biased, since I am that old ..ha..ha, had those very albums on vinyl way back and hearing them again brings me back to those days!

So new comers and youngsters, yes it is old school !! But hey no story without history!!

So try this sampler out, you might be surprised!!

P.s. As always Esoteric Recordings delivers and the booklet here is very elaborate, insightful and the cover art is great!!
