Albenrezension

Over the past few decades, the Flock's late-'60s and early-'70s legacy has been all but forgotten, and yet their highly idiosyncratic twist on progressive rock — one which used both classical music and jazz fusion as touchstones for truly mind-altering flights of fancy — remains as original as anything heard in the rock era. Cross-town heroes Chicago (or Chicago Transit Authority, as they were known at the time) were stealing headlines as the first rock & roll band with a fully integrated horn section, but this adventurous septet not only challenged this distinction with their own three-saxophone front, but went a step further by adding violinist Jerry Goodman to their ranks.
