The Best of Mark Almond

It is SO GOOD to find this album again. I wore out several copies of Mark-Almond II on vinyl back in the day. This album contains all of their best material except for, in my opinion, the finest rendition of "New York State of Mind." In the 70s this group was a regular on the Fillmore circuit. I saw them opening for Yes once, and as headliners a couple of times. Fine melodies, smoooooth jazzy sound, and virtuoso instrumental work. Just buy it. And share it with friends. The Mark-Almond Band is a nearly-forgotten gem from that seminal period in American rock music.

Why doesn't anyone know about these guys?

This is one of my all time favorite albums and I'd love to know why Mark-Almond wasn't on the scene for a longer period of time. They are awesome! My mom turned me on to them and I have been a huge fan for the past decade.

Get this!

Normally I hate it when iTunes sells 10 min+ songs as "Album Only", such as "In the City" (Why not charge $ 1.98?). But there's also "One Way Sunday" and "What am I Living For", which I think is one heck of a good tune, but the lyrics perhaps make the biggest impact (of woe) of any I've heard. You MUST, I repeat MUST listen to that tune.

Prior to his career with Mayall, Mark and Mick Jagger co-produced Marianne Faithfull's early albums, with Mark later writing material for her and touring with her. He also toured with folksinger Alun Davies, and the two formed an ill-fated band...
