Cross and Ross, came together after Keith Cross´ stint as a guitar virtuoso with famous band T2 (and before that Bulldog Breed), teaming up with Peter Ross in 1972, recording this fine album with such famous musical friends as: B.J.Cole/ Jimmy Hastings & Nick Lowe. This a highly sought after album in certain rock collector circuits, really are a rare find...but NOW ladies and gentlemen, here it is in brand new audio vision and re-mastered as only Esoteric can do it !! It is a blend of pop songs, country rock and rock, especially my favourite songs really has leanings to the original Rare Bird, their tunes and vocal style! I would lie if I told you that this is prog, its NOT! What it is ...is a great musical document from times lost and serious record collectors will wanna own it, as do I ...it goes straight into my private collection. Completist´ , friends and collectors of T2 will certainly also wanna own it! With some 40 years + in the bag it still sounds remarkable fresh and with the usual fine Esoteric treatment, expect great sound and extended booklet ...oh and bonus tracks!

My fav tracks in no particular order: "Story To A Friend" / "Pastels" / "Fly Home" / "Blind Willie Johnson" (Bonus track)/ "Prophets Guiders" (Bonus track).

For musical style reference, think America (the US band) , early Rare Bird & Uk bands Bronco/ Cochise.
